1. Cutting The Skin Too Deep

DIY Microblading by Awayion Beauty

For starters, performing an invasive procedure (i.e. Microblading) on your own eyebrows can scar you for life, pun intended.

Now, unless you are an experienced licensed tattoo artist, you could cut your skin too deep.

One reason you should never try to DIY Micro-blading is that the “sweet spot” where the pigment needs to lay is separated by the dermis and major blood supply.

These areas are separated by millimeters. Penetrating too deep can cause excessive bleeding, color blurring, and poor healing. And scarring of the tissue (Ivy Laser Salon, 2018).

2. Blood Contamination

A risk of blood contamination occurs when skin is cut. Micro-blading at home increases this risk.

One way you could decrease this risk is if you have passed many continuing education blood-borne pathogen courses. Most women who do their own makeup have not taken these medical courses.

This DIY risk of contamination is high. And cand lead to infection and blood-borne diseases, such as Hepatitis (Ivy Laser Salon, 2018).

3. Permanent Hair Loss
