It was light brown/reddish and thick after I left the chair. After a week it got crusty- or call it flaky because the crusts fell off. Everything google told me that will happen, happened.

She did say though that I have thick eyebrows and barely any missing patches.
Microblading is different from tattooing. It doesn't use a machine the way tattooing does. And they use pigment instead of ink. The technique and outcome is different.

I'm thinking perhaps you got a tattoo (permanent) instead of microblading (semi-perm)? When you left the chair, it should have looked completely natural.

If you want to attach pics, you can use the paperclip icon at the top.

It was advertised as microblading. She told me it will be semi permanent, 1-3 years and if I want permanent, I should go with something else.

I can upload with the paperclip but then it just stays there in the manage attachments folder. I cannot attach and I cannot screenshot.

I have added the microblading pic under my albums but of course it doesn't want to be rotated no matter how I rotate the original source . But when you look at it, it looks a bit reddish

Yeah, they do look reddish. I don't know what the red would be from. I don't know why she would use red pigment on you. It's possible it was blood, but hard to tell from the photo. Definitely not my experience. Was yours done in just a one visit, or did she suggest a touch up a few weeks later?

She said a touch up is important, after 4 weeks. She is the teacher or owner of a beauty school so I really trusted her.

Well, now the red is gone and I look like before the procedure. She said she won't use black, it is too dark (and I agree) so she said dark brown.

If it were me, I'm not certain I'd go back to her. If you look like you did before the procedure, something didn't take. And between the red and the crustiness, that just doesn't seem normal to me.

I'm sorry the results weren't what you were expecting.

I read online that a touch up is always necessary and she said the same.

Hm. I guess I will go to someone else for it. Thanks for the tip!

Oh yeah, the touch up is necessary. But you should still see results from the first procedure.

The only problem with going to someone else is that they may charge the full initial fee rather than the touch up fee.

Where I am, most offer a higher fee ($650) that includes a touch-up 6 few weeks later, or a flat fee for the initial session and the touch-up ($300 x 2). And there is no guarantee it will last a year.

I saw the photos of someone who had hers done by a microblading tech at a home basement for $200 per session. She posted them online asking for HELP! It was really bad.

Mine charged a $50 deposit when I made the appointment, $400 for the initial procedure, and $50 for the touch up (and future touch ups)

I DEFINITELY wouldn’t trust someone who operates out of their basement! YIKES!!
