TRIED & TESTED: "I got my eyebrows tattooed with a freehand blade. Here’s how it went." – Mamamia

Colette doesn't use either, but instead,uses a tiny blade to individually apply strokes of tattoo to mimic your natural hairs. So she basically adds extra hairs in the areas where they are sparse or missing.

The design will differ on each client as no two brows are the same, and the treatment is done over two sessions so that the brows can look as natural as possible.

The eyebrow tattooing can last from six to 12 months depending on your age, the design you decide to get done, how much hair you naturally have and how you care for the tattoo.

For freehand clients, it's generally12 to 18 months. For signature, it will last around 12 months. And complete brows will need touch-ups between six to 12 months.

Caring for brow tattooing is fairly straightforward. But you need to follow the rules so they don't fade.

During the first two weeks, it's imperative they're kept dry. Therefore, no gym sessions, swimming or saunas during this time. KOHL also provide an antimicrobial ointment to apply.

Besides that, don't touch them and let them heal!

With most beauty treatments including this one, there will be risks depending on where you go.

If your artist is unexperienced, you could get the wrong shape or colour. Or worse, they could cut the skin too deep, which can lead to discoloured ink, scarring or infection.

So make sure tochoose your artist wisely and read plenty of reviews and recommendations first.

"Undoing a tattoo is so much harder so never rush your decision to get it done. Make sure you connect with your artist and youre comfortable they understand your brow brief. If not, dont do it or I'll probably be seeing you for a pretty painful removal," Colette said.

Now that's out of the way, here's what happened when I got my brows tattooed by Colette.

My eyebrows are naturally very light in colour and pretty sparse around the edges. I usually make them darker and fill in the empty areas. So I went in to get the signature brow to fix that.

Going into the treatment, I was pretty excited and calm. I didn't really register that this was the first tattoo I was getting (sorry mum) and it was going on my face.
