After taking some time off after giving birth (it never sounds quite right saying “time off” as looking after newborns is round the clock hard work!), Wendy is returning to Elegant Lashes.

Feather Brows

Feather Brows


Hair strokes can be created by a microblade tool or a digital machine. So what is the difference? Is one better than the other for feather brow tattooing?

Both microblading and the digital machine with a skilled practitioner will produce crisp lines and both can produce great results however the digital machine has many advantages over the microblade.

We’ve been specialising in feather brows for 5 years, in fact, one of the first salons in Sydney to do so. We have performed thousands of feather brow tattoos and continually update our training. From our experience and knowledge the digital machine is better and this is why:

The depth into the skin in which the pigment is placed is accurately measured by the action of the machine, which you just can’t do by hand with a microblade tool, and this creates a line that is consistent in depth and colour until it tapers off to the tip of the hair stroke.

The digital machine punctures the hair stokes into the skin whereas a microblade scratches a hairline across the skin. Cosmetic tattooing is a semi permanent treatment and most clients get a refresh once a year. If you get microblading done, multiple treatments of scratching the same area could lead to scarring. This is avoided with a digital machine application.

Microblading doesn’t often work with oily the skin. The colour doesn’t hold as well and in some cases may not take at all. So we always recommend a digital machine for feather brows to avoid this from happening.

Microblading often does not last as long as cosmetic tattooing with a digital machine and this is attributed to the shallowness of the application in comparison and the inconsistency in depth from applying the hair strokes manually.

So these are the advantages of a digital machine; consistent, even hair strokes, a colour that will hold longer even with oily skin, and avoiding the risk of scarring.


Now we are heading to winter it’s the perfect time to get your brows feathered. The sun is weak and the days are short, optimal for healing and hiding in the first couple of days when the colour can appear slightly darker!
