we have answers
What is microblading?
Microblading is an artistic tattooing technique that utilizes a hand-held microblade tool that mimics individual hair strokes. Where traditional tattooing uses a machine with multiple needles, microblading artists draw each hair to match the colour and coarseness of your natural eyebrows. This technique creates beautiful, natural looking results.
How long does it last?
Outcomes will vary as everyone’s skin responds uniquely to the treatment. With this in mind, results typically last from 1 to 3 years.
Does it hurt?
Like traditional tattooing, everyone’s pain tolerance is different. To enhance your comfort, we apply a numbing cream to the treatment area prior to, and during the permanent makeup procedure.
How long does it take to heal?
You can return to your daily routine immediately after your appointment! However, avoid getting your brows wet, working out, or using brow makeup for the first 7 days. You may notice some light scabbing as your brows continue to heal. Allow 30 days for your brows to heal completely. Please follow the after care instructions carefully.
How long is the appointment?
Total time for your appointment is 2-3 hours; however, the majority of that time is spent in choosing your colour, and preparing the surface for the procedure (numbing, drawing, and shaping). The actual procedure is only 30-45 minutes.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
The following restrictions are to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition for an amazing procedure. Please read carefully:
Please do not work out on the day of the appointment as your body heat will expand your pores.
Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, and sunburns 3 days before your procedure. Skin should not be in the process of healing itself.
Do NOT drink coffee or anything with caffeine the day of the procedure.
Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen, omega-3, unless medically necessary; 48-72 hours prior to the procedure. (Tylenol or Acetaminophen is OK!)
Do NOT drink alcohol 24 hours before the procedure.
The following treatments should be avoided within FOUR weeks of your procedure:
Botox or other fillers
Clients who have taken or are taking Isotretinoin must wait a minimum 6 months after taking this medication to receive treatment.
If you have any questions or require clarification please do not hesitate to call.
What if I have Botox® injections and/or fillers?
We recommend you receive your microblading treatment first and/or ask your treatment provider for clearance.
Can Microblading hide or cover my scars?
Yes! However, I recommend you submit a photo of your eyebrows in advance of your appointment without make-up so I can confirm that you are a candidate for microblading.
Are you able to touch up or fix another artist’s work?
If you are not satisfied with the results of another artist’s work, or require a touch up, you will need to book in for a full treatment with me. This will allow adequate time for me to assess and correct your brows.
Does Microblading work on different skin types and colours?
Absolutely! However, if you have extremely oily skin, your finished brow colouring may fade into a more powdery finish over time. Normal-combination and dry skin types often yield a better result.
Will my brows turn a different colour after they fade?
I work with high quality organic ink pigments that stay true to their color. Over time, the permanent cosmetic fades to a lighter shade of brown.
Can I get Microblading/ Permanent Makeup while pregnant or breastfeeding?
We do not recommend microblading or permanent makeup procedures while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Are you fully licensed and insured?
Yes, at Ink Brow Bar, we are fully licensed and insured. This includes my Permanent Cosmetics Technician license, Vancouver Health Inspection license, and the City of Vancouver Business license. We carry commercial general liability insurance, including bodily injury and personal injury. In addition we have been trained on bloodborne pathogens.
What They Say
“Best. Decision. Ever. I’ve thought about getting my brows microbladed for a while now but always kept putting it off since it would be (semi) permanently on my face. When I finally decided to go for it and found Nikki the experience was exceptional. She’s not only extremely talented, she explained the whole process to me before we started to put me at ease, and had a great time throughout the whole session. Now wherever I go, I constantly get compliments about my brows and I send everyone Nikki’s way because she is seriously the best!”
– Jessica Cheng
“Nikki is AMAZING!!! She is very knowledgeable and extremely likeable. She will go above and beyond to make sure your brows are perfect for your face shape and everything you want them to be! My brows were very uneven to begin with and Nikki took her time to map my face (more than once) to make sure they were perfect and let me tell you, they ARE perfect! So happy I found Nikki and will continue to go back for touch ups for life! I will recommend anyone and everyone to Ink brow bar!”
– Kylie Wong
“Nikki is absolutely one of the most dedicated and perfectionist-oriented people I know. Her work is amazing and it’s clear she loves what she does. My brows look amazing. Her space is spotless and well organised. I have no hesitation referring her to any one looking for this service. Thank you Nikki.”
– Ally Gordon
“Nikki is SO talented! She takes her work very seriously and is always improving her skills. She does a fantastic job. My brows are 2 years old and still look like new! I would highly recommend seeing her for any cosmetic tattooing.”

“Nikki is absolutely amazing at what she does! She spent so much time listening to how I wanted my brows and mapping them out perfectly. They suit my face so well and I get so many compliments on them! Money well spent. Plus, Nikki is so kind and funny, which makes the whole experience really enjoyable. I highly recommend going to her for microshading, and will one day be back for a lip tint tattoo!”
