Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure where hair like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to enhance, reshape or create a natural looking appearance on the brows. A handheld pen that has a sterile "blade" is used to draw the eyebrow by dipping the blade into a pigment that matches the hair color of the client.
