For microblading, the tool I use is the size of a pen, with the end of the pen being a single row of needles that form a blade. This is not an electronic tool, so the pigment is implanted by dipping the blade in the pigment and gliding the tool in hair stroke like movements. You will hear a light scratching as we work through the skin.
Opposed to microblading all other procedures are performed with a machine, it is different from a body tattoo machine in shape and size. It is slightly bigger than the size of the pen as the machine is inside the tool, at the end of the tool we place our disposable pre sterilised needle modules (number and size of needles used depends on the specific procedure usually we use 1 point, 2 point and 3 point needles). We dip the needles into pigment, where the needles are oscillating up and down in micro movements at a fast frequency then place the very tip of the needle into the skin and let the machine do the work while our hand guides the direction.
