They dye their hair and not their eyebrows, which is why the eyebrows are a different color. I wouldn't dye my eyebrows if someone threatened my life. My eyesight is more important to me than my appearance.

If you have light eyebrows, dyeing them darker can improve your looks!

Several companies make a "hair mascara" that is used to cover gray roots on your part between hair coloring. These come in several shades, and I have used them on my eyebrows, just to add a bit of color to the gray parts. I find it looks more natural than eyebrow pencil, because it colors the brow's hairs, not the skin beneath.

Since my eyebrows have sprouted more than a few gray hairs, I dye them when I do a retouch on my roots. A q-tip works very well to appy the dye and as long as it isn't running into your eyes, quite safe. When it's time to get the dye off, I tissue off as much as I can, then rinse and shampoo when it's time to get the stuff out of my hair.

If it's done correctly it's hardly noticeable. You DO NOT go to a tattoo artist to get your eyebrows tattooed on because you don't use tattoo ink, you use pigment. I have both regular tattoos and my eyebrows tattooed on and it's a completely different process with different equipment. I had an accident that permanently took off part of one of my eyebrows and instead of drawing them on every day (including more than one incident where I ended up looking quizzical all day...) I decided to get them inked.

I went to a woman with excellent reviews who specialized in cosmetic tattooing for cancer patients, most notably she does nipple tattoos for women who have had masectomies and she did a fantastic job. The problem is that women are unfamiliar with the procedure and have it done as if it's a regular tattoo and it's most definitely not.

Most people are completely shocked that mine are tattooed on.

Many women use eyebrow pencil or powder to change the colour and shape of their eyebrows. I think actually dying or tattooing the eyebrows is not very common at all.
it is Linda believe me, in the UK it is... its known here as Scouse Brow... where it seems to have origintated in the UK...
