Art that adorns the flesh…

Get Your Face On

June 9th, 2010 by

Tattooed cosmetics have been around for quite some time now and many women choose to have this done in order to save time and…well, I’m not really sure what other reasons that someone might have for doing this.  I don’t wear makeup so I’m not much help in this field.  But apparently, aside from tattooed cosmetics there are also tattooed eyebrows which also seem to be quite popular with some women, especially in the Philippines.

Unfortunately, tattooed eyebrows are still a rather iffy proposition for many more women.  Stories about women not liking the end results of their tattooed eyebrows or horrible allergic reactions from the ink used are often circulated, making those who are interested in the procedure quickly change their minds.

But recently, a new form of eyebrow tattooing in Quezon City, Philippines is attracting a lot of attention from eyebrow seeking women.  The new procedure, called Feather Eyebrow Tattoo, uses organic ink (from Korea!) and creates the look of a natural eyebrow, complete with even hairs. The old tattoo method simply leaves a solid block of colour in place of the eyebrow.  Perhaps I’m oversimplifying the procedure, but if you’re interested in learning more about it, you can check out the information here.

Hey, I’m all for people getting whatever they want done to their bodies, but what I don’t get is unless your eyebrows were scorched off in a fire or an explosion of some sort, why not just keep them instead of shaving them off and drawing them back on?  There’s this lady who shops at my local supermarket and she shaves off her brows and then paints them back on with some sort of red makeup.  The end result is nothing short of horrible.  She looks like Ronald McDonald.  I just don’t get it.
