My wife’s latest desire….Microblading

I know this is a bit off subject but I think we can squeeze it in because it is at least loosely related to “self improvement”.

When I first heard about microblading I initially thought it sounded like some kind of new skating trend or something but turns out I was way off.  I guess it is some kind of semi-permanent tattoo that the ladies are getting to fill in their thin eyebrows.  From the looks of it, it seems to do a pretty good job and actually looks pretty natural. Actually it does look pretty unnatural for about the first week but after it heals the brows look like any other full brow.  They say that this is because the pigment is still on the top of the skin which makes the strokes appear much darker than they will once healed.  You can get this treatment at some salons in metro areas and some tattoo shops are even jumping on board because the demand is growing.

My wife decided to make her appointment for next week and she is very excited.  To be honest, I am not sure how I feel about it.  I am kind of torn because I obviously would like her to be happy with herself and her body but I also think it is a bit extreme to change your natural features in such a drastic way. I suppose the fact that it is only semi-permanent should give me some solace but hey I feel the way I feel right?  I might get some flack from the men here but believe it or not, I can actually relate to disliking parts of my body and have even thought about going under the knife for a couple things over the years.  I have actually moved on from trying to fix all of my little issues and feel a better person for it so no plastic surgery for me.  I guess all I can do is be supportive in her decision but I will also probably talk to her about my reservations.  I love my wife with her thin eyebrows and all. 😉 If she wants to go through with it then I will be okay with it as well.  Check out the pic below to see what it looks like when freshly completed.
