Many people ask us: is microblading painful?
Most of our clients report little or no pain. Since the procedure takes a couple hours, some clients have literally slept through it! We leave a topical anesthetic on the eyebrow area for 30 to 45 minutes before we begin the process, so this leaves most clients numb during the procedure. However, if your artist begins within that 30 minutes, or if you find that you’re very sensitive, you may report mild discomfort.
In summary, microblading is intended to be a less painful experience, certainly less painful than traditional tattooing on account of the numbing cream. Let the numbing cream take effect, and relax!
