Is Microblading Painful? Singaporean Ladies Share Their Experiences

Updated: Sep 18, 2019

A very commonly asked question by ladies is this - is the microblading session going to be painful?

Microblading is defined as a form of semi-permanent tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. The eyebrow artist will draw hair-like strokes with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows.

You can see the before and after process here:

Your Fears Are Natural

Every single day, I often receive enquiries on whether is this process painful.

Here are just some of the screenshots of the questions I get on whether is the process "painful".

Your fears are understandable.

While you wish to get rid of the hassles of drawing your eyebrows daily, you are also slightly feeling queasy on the microblading process itself.

I find that the best way to overcome any fear - is to understand the process.

The Microblading Process

The entire process is actually quite simple and encompasses only these 5 steps.

Step 1: Consult on the different brow services suitable for you

Step 2: Select the colors & shape

Step 3: Design brow according to golden ratio of your face

Step 4: Apply numbing cream

Step 5: Sit back & relax

The actual process is broken into 3 stages as seen below here:


Post-Microblading Survey

Instead of me reassuring you that microblading is not painful, let me share with you the actual words used by our first-time customers.

We asked the following first-time clients to share their post-microblading thoughts and feelings.

This was the question:

“Thank you for using Jo Artysan services! So how was the microblading session?”

Here are the responses:

Ms J Tan, early 30s, medical professional

Mdm SY, mid 30s, entrepreneur

Mdm ML, late 40s, lawyer

Ms RN, late 20s, air stewardess

Mdm JT, late 30s, investment banker

As you can see, these are the customer’s actual words immediately after the session. We acknowledge that pain is relative - different people have different threshold.

However, we will do our best to make sure you are comfortable. The process is painless as you can see from 90% of the responses.
