Fixing a bad shaped Eyebrow Tattoos is not about saving money. Fixing bad permanent makeup is about saving your face, protecting your appearance and preserving your positive, self-image for years to come.

Since eyebrow tattoo or permanent eyebrows is the most popular procedure I practice in Toronto and North York, I always face clients who come for fixing bad eyebrow tattoos. The reality is eyebrow tattoos are not only the most popular procedure for permanent makeup, they are often the most difficult to fix.

If a so-called permanent makeup artist gave you a bad case of Eyebrow Tattoo, don’t just assume she or he will magically get it right the second time. Many people often come to me saying the person actually made a bigger mess trying to fix the bad tattooed eyebrows job they did the first time. While this person obviously wants to do well and stay in business, he or she may not be able to help you.

If you leaped into love with the benefits of permanent makeup but didn’t choose your permanent makeup artist wisely, then don’t rush into this person’s chair again a second time. Remember, “Don’t make same mistake twice”

I know every woman has high hopes when they want to get permanent makeup, if  It looks great makes your life much easier for years. But only if you have it done right the first time. Having a bad eyebrow tattoos hurts every time you stand in front of mirror.

Whether or not you got at least a second opinion before you had your bad eyebrow tattoos done, you will definitely want to do it this time. And don’t simply go back to the same ones you consulted before. The permanent makeup artist who promotes cash discounts, or the one who works closest to your home, job, or gym, may not be the best alternative especially when your face is already messed up with bad permanent makeup.

This is no time to pinch pennies or save time on a shorter commute. Seek out the most reputable and experienced permanent makeup professionals you can. Ask them for real pictures of colour correction or fixing bad shapes.

Based on nearly a 20 years of experience, I want to help you choose the right person. Keep in mind there is no quick fix or remedy for bad tattooed eyebrows or permanent makeup at least not by using cosmetic tattoo methods.


Here are some additional helpful permanent makeup tips for you to remember especially when it comes to fixing bad eyebrow tattoo:

  • The darker the eyebrows, the more applications it will take to fix them. Jumping right back into another eyebrow tattoos procedure might not even be advised. You might require laser therapy. And this isn’t instant gratification either. You might need anywhere from 3 to 12 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Then you can get permanent makeup done right.

  • The same theory applies if you are using a color corrector to bring an eyebrow down from black to brown. You have to give your skin a break and allow it to heal. Otherwise you will build up scarring. This is why I have the courage to tell new clients the harsh truth sometimes that if their eyebrows are badly misshaped or in the wrong position, the best and quickest solution is to consult with a plastic surgeons or a dermatologist.

  • If your eyebrow tattoos are solid “Jet Black” and have the wrong shape and placement my recommendation is usually to see a dermatologist remove them and start over. Fix the problem. Learn from your mistake and move on. Get your permanent makeup done right the second time and enjoy all the benefits which will last you for years.

  • If your tattooed eyebrows are gray but not too dark, you can use a colour corrector.  You’ll only want to use ORANGE. This will help to lighten the eyebrows and turn them back to a brown.  The person working with neutralizer ink or colour corrector must be very experienced otherwise you end up having another unwanted colour. If your tattooed eyebrows are a blueish black or grey blue colour, you have to be extremely careful with colour correction. You don’t want to turn your eyebrows an even more unnatural shade of green or teal.

  • If your permanent eyebrows are red, but they are the right shape, you might just be okay. You should be able to use a color corrector of green to turn back to brown.

  • If you wound up with purple permanent eyebrows, there is a solution. You can usually apply a yellow to turn them back to brown.

  • If you have eyebrow tattoos which are in the wrong place, are multi-colored, or too dark, it’s never a case of one and done. You need to do multiple treatments to remove the bad permanent makeup. NOTE: You absolutely should not take another color and try to cover up the damage. If you do, you’ll only create a color you’d never want or one you cannot fix without surgery.

Most people do not realize how expensive, painful, and time consuming it is to remove a bad permanent eyebrows .So know if you are going through this at least you are not alone.
