I highly recommend it, but just take your time looking for a good permanent makeup artist, and make sure they're certified. I lean towards those who do reconstructive tattoos over those who just do permanent makeup.

I pluck and occasionally wax, but having the tattoo has made it VERY difficult for a salon worker to screw them up. Just get rid of everything outside of the tattoo. Simple.

Since they are very light, I usually darken them a bit with a pencil/powder.
A woman I used to work with got this done. She was very, very pleased with the results and they did look really good! I could only tell because I knew she was getting it done.

I don't pluck or remove my eyebrows. They are pretty much as-is. I do, however, put a teeny bit of hairspray on my finger and dab it onto my brow, brushing up to make sure that "arch" is pronounced and doesn't lose shape. No worries about a unibrow, thank goodness!

I use beard dye to dye mine once a month -- the grey ones take it okay, but I don't have much grey -- but the rest of my brows are losing pigment -- common for my dark ash bonde hair color. Beard dye takes ral well on those and it looks great.

If I over tweeze, I don't dye anymore until they grow out. Since they practically disappear, it doesn't matter what I pluck or not....

I pluck but only under the brow. The top is left alone. Thank gawd I don't have thick pillers. And they are set far apart.

Thats creative.

How does it compare in price and performance to eyebrow tint dye?

I am just wondering if the same story as men's razors...which I prefer...lol
Cheaper and better.

I get mine's threaded fairly routinely but take a break if I see my brows thinning out...which happens because I don't really have very thick eyebrows to begin with...it's the random unrulies that are annoying.
Au natural. I don't need to pluck, wax or thread. It's nice and thick and perfectly shaped.

I don't know -- I didn't realize there was such a thing as eyebrow tint for the longest time that I could buy. Beard dye is about 8 bucks a box and the tubes of stuff last forever -- I can stretch it to last 6-7 months. It's nice and thick, so no running.

For me -- the color lasts about a month.
