Feathering Semi Permanent Brows from Patrick Henri Studio 8 Hong Kong

| April 12, 2016 | 1 Comment

Feathering is a hair stroke eyebrow technique used in a semi-permanent tattoo. Here we have a hair-simulation technique for beautifully natural-looking eyebrows. Delicate individual hairs which mimic real brow hairs are meticulously crafted and woven together in the direction of your natural brow hair, creating a softly feathered effect. The result is beautifully natural, on-trend eyebrows that are totally flattering to the whole face.

This semi-permanent technique transforms sparse brows into perfectly symmetrical plush arches that elegantly frame the face. Unlike the harsh block tattooing, feathering looks completely natural because it mimics the brow hair and can be individually customized. Depending on your needs, brows can be subtly colored or completely remodeled as each new strand is intricately etched and colored by hand.

Patrick Henri Studio 8 Sheung Wan in Hong Kong is a makeup artist, so his expertise in shaping the brow is excellent. I would stress that this treatment can lead to two outcomes, the first thicken the look of brows that have been over tweezed, the second is to have your brows reshaped when you have over tweezed at the ends of the brows and lost the balance look that brows bring to your face.

Upon arrival at Studio 8, Patrick will have the opportunity to discuss your preferences, too color and shape, he will listen and discuss the options, a scratch test is completed to ensure that you are not allergic to the pigment, an excellent precaution that many tattoo offices in Hong Kong do not offer. With Patrick creative eye, he will guide you to great brows.

When you return, the first part of feathering is to have Patrick redesign your brows, first with an eyebrow pencil, take photos and when the shape is agreed upon, he will go over the outline of the brows with a darker market, again photos. Be patient you may think they look fine but Patrick is a perfectionist, you are not leaving his studio with bad brows. Then numbing cream is applied and you will wait for about 45 – 50 minutes. This is probably the longest part of your entire appointment time.

Time to begin, as I have had permanent make up before I know that this treatment can be a little uncomfortable, but with the right expert the discomfort is minimal. I would say that the only sound I could hear was a scratching sound, from the tiny tool that Patrick uses to add the pigment into the brow area, no discomfort at all.

During the treatment Patrick adjusted the pigment mix, initially he wanted to mix 80 % Pearl Blonde and 20% Mocha,  as he could see how my skin was taking in the color he adjusted it first to 70%-30% then again to 60%-40% mix. Patrick provides the finest pigments manufactured in Germany to give clients the maximum results. Patrick carefully etches the pigment mix back and forth across the brow-line placing realistic strokes for about 20 mins; pausing periodically to check the symmetry of his work. Finally taking photos, you have to expect that they will fade over the next few weeks until you return for your touch up treatment.

The pigment will appear very sharp and maybe darker than you expected immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of the skin and has not settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab as you use the aftercare, as this is excess pigment or bodily fluid that is naturally exiting your skin. Proper aftercare will ensure that the pigment holds well, after one week, you will notice a slight color fade but during that time Patrick has an after care lotion for your to use, this is anti-bac and will keep the brows soft, until you return.
