Hi. I’m a master trainer in permanent cosmetics. 15 years

It’s impossible to know what the original color was made of, inferior pigments may fade, change color, blurr, or never go away. 

Ideally, pigments are placed in the skin at a depth that they never go completely away. However, microblading is actually inferior to permanent makeup tattooing.


So it does fade as its implanted at inconsistent  depths. So the tails you have left, are at a deeper  placement that the rest were.

Also laser can help, topical are just not deep enough to affect a tattoo that is deep enough.

Following as Iv had mine done for the last 4 years and i still have the little tails…although i havent done anything to try make them fade I had hoped enough time would  do that. I think i will end up moving to laser as I definitely think she went way too deep and am sick of covering with makeup every day.

No tattooing is temporary. Anyone who told you that lied.

In many places, it is required by law, to disclose  it is at best semi permanent, and more likely, should be considered permanent. 


This is the problem with little weekend microblading  classes. And procedures in little salons. Often people end up illegally tattooing the face without proper knowledge or cleanliness with inferior products. 

This is, a tattoo. 

They also misrepresent the long term results.

cypresstree85 :  I have tattooed eyeliner which I’m pretty sure is the same pigment as microblading. I was told it would last 5 years tops. It’s been 10 years and it’s still very much so there. It’s faded a little (from black to a dark gray). I don’t see mine being gone any time soon, if ever.

Perhaps you can try microneedling to help remove the ends? Cheaper alternative done at the estheticians.

If your tattooist has health board cerification, you are in luck. It is very easy to find out.


Regardless, microblading is inferior because it does not deposit  evenly. ..it is subject to patchiness. It a low quality outcome, and as you’ve noted, it’s not temporary. 


The lack of consistent depth is because of the hand tool action of diving into and out of the skin. 80 percent of the pigment nay not take or dissappear quickly having been implanted to shallow. Meaning you have an odd fade or healout.

Also it is possible to go way too deep, causing scarring or darker implantaton in certain spots. 

It is the oldest form of cosmetic tattooing.  It is something we teach, and handtools can be used for specific reasons but it’s not ideal for long or short term, in a fully applied eyebrow. 

I hold an international award for correcting poorly applied brows, usually by handtool. It is also something I teach to advanced licensed professionals.  

Regardless, no it us unlikely  you will remove those tattooed tails without laser.
