If you've lost your eyebrows due to Alopecia, chemotherapy, or other medical conditions that cause hair loss, you might be considering getting permanent tattoos to restore your brows.
However, permanent tattoos are not always the best solution. Here's why I think temporary eyebrow tattoos are a better alternative, and why I chose to use them instead of "going under the needle".
I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to deal with hair loss due to Alopecia. I was going to get permanent tattoos maybe five or six years ago, before I discovered temporary eyebrow tattoos, and started My Two Brows. My mom told me not to, and I'm SO happy she did.
The reason is this: almost 100% of our clients who've had this procedure done some years ago say they regret it.
Here are some of the reasons why:
Risk: Permanent tattoos are a high-risk procedure. You have to fully trust your tattoo artist with your appearance, because if any minor detail is off, you're stuck with it pretty much for life.
On the other hand, temporary eyebrow tattoos are completely risk-free. If you don't like them, you can just wipe them off! You can try out lots of colors, sizes, and styles to find the perfect brows for you.
Cost: Permanent tattoos are expensive, and if there is anything you shouldn't bargain shop on, it's a tattoo on your face! Especially one you are hoping people won't notice.
My Two Brows cost significantly less than $1 per day for most people, which is a very small price to pay for feeling like your real self again, with no risk of long-term ugly brows tattooed front and center onto your face.
Realism: Permanent tattoos often don't look very real. They can be too dark, with edges that are too defined and no 3D effect.
My Two Brows temporary tattoos are almost indistinguishable from natural eyebrows unless someone is really looking for them. Try them and see if people notice (they won't).
Maintenance: Permanent tattoos require significant maintenance to avoid looking ugly. The ink can bleed and move underneath the skin, distorting the original brow shape. Over time, tattoos can turn green.
With temporary eyebrow tattoos, there is no maintenance needed. When your brows wear out, just remove them and put on a fresh pair.
So if you've lost your eyebrows and are considering permanent tattoos as a solution, I strongly recommend you try My Two Brows temporary eyebrow tattoos first.
They are risk-free, affordable, super-realistic, with no maintenance required.
