Opting for eyebrow tattoo is an option available that helps you fill in the missing shape. You can choose the color of your eyebrows, its thickness, and shape. The only drawback is that it can fade over a period of time as the skin regenerates.
Complementing Color Selection
Depending on your natural hair color, it is recommended that you stick to the general eyebrow color that will complement it. To give you a fair idea as to what you should be expecting, here are three major hair color categories that the majority of women fall under (unless you have dyed your hair).
Women with Blonde Hair
Try to match the color of your tattoo with your actual hair color. For instance, if your hair is stark blonde, stick with blonde ink. If your hair is towards dark blonde shade, then a light brown or a golden shade is suitable for you. The ones with silver or gray tinge to the blonde hair, must stick with blonde ink.
Women with Brunette Hair
Brunettes have a better advantage here as there are a variety of shades to choose from. If you have a meager growth, it's most likely that feather-like strokes will suit you perfectly. A light stroke of whichever shade you've chose would look good, when applied with perfection.
Women with Red Hair
Redheads have porcelain to fair skin color. This makes their makeup woes tougher than their counterparts. As for the eyebrows, women with red hair can try anywhere from dark brown to copper to a few shades of red. If you can carry it off, dark blonde with a tinge of red will also look good.
Tattoo care is similar to taking care of a wound. The first and immediate sight of the tattoo will horrify you, but don't panic. Gradually, you will get used to the look. Initially the color will seem darker than you had hoped for. However, over a week or so, it will lighten up.
- For the first week for two, depending on the condition of your tattoo, avoid excessive use of water, and don't apply any makeup and stay out of the sun, chlorine water, and the beach. This can make the wound septic.
- Use a good antiseptic cream to prevent any infections.
- After 10 days or so, the tattoo will start healing, during which you will have to keep the skin around it moisturized.
- Always apply sunscreen before going out in the sun once the tattoo has healed completely.
