California Microblading Experts


Port City Tattoo is proud to now offer professional California Microblading services at both of our tattoo shop locations. Semi-permanent microblading for eyebrows is a growing trend for those seeking a fuller and more contoured eyebrow and brow line. California Microblading, also known as microstroking, is a cosmetic tattoo technique that uses a row of extremely fine needles to create thin, hair-like marks on the eyebrow area. The outcome is a natural looking eyebrow that is fuller and filled in. It is much different from eyebrow tattooing, which most of us are familiar with already. Where microblading differs from tattooed eyebrows is that it is semi-permanent. With results lasting up to 18 months it is a semi-permanent procedure that will require touch ups depending on your skin tone and the desired results.

Microblading California

California Microblading is a newer trend that is steadily growing in popularity in the United States. Port City is proud to now offer microblading cosmetic services to our clients in California. 

Our expert Microblading services in California are a form of tattooing, but not in the traditional sense. The pigment is only inserted to the very top layers of the skin, which is why it fades over the months and years. For those that are not fans of traditional cosmetic tattooing due to its permanent results, Microblading is an amazing innovation in cosmetic tattooing and permanent makeup options. With fuller brows trending, Microblading is an excellent alternative to traditional permanent eyebrow tattoos.

The term ‘eyebrow tattoos’ scares most people away, but Microblading provides a much more natural result. With fuller eyebrows everywhere right now, it is hard to see why having thinned-out brows or none at all was ever fashionable. If you are someone that has waxed or plucked their way to super thin eyebrows and regrowth has failed to happen, our professional Micorblading in California can help provide you with a more pronounced brow line and fuller brows. Our microblading professionals will start with drawing the perfect brow shape to suit your face. Every microblading application begins with a consultation to ensure that your brows will be customized to the exact specification of your features and hair color. Our California Microblading professionals are experts at creating the perfect balance of fullness and contour.

Microblading vs Permanent Makeup

Microblading California

As we mentioned before, the biggest difference between the microblading and tattooed eyebrows is the size of the needles, the lightness of the stroke and the depth at which the needles penetrate the skin. California microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure with no down time and minimal to no healing time. It is as an excellent alternative to permanent makeup techniques that have been around for a while now. Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing service that can benefit people from every walk of life without the commitment that comes along with permanent cosmetic tattoos.

This trending semi-permanent tattooing technique is especially beneficial to those that suffer from thinning eyebrows due to illness, genetic anomalies or over-grooming.

Southern California Microblading and permanent makeup application are very different cosmetic procedures. Tattooed eyebrows are applied with permanent pigments and are more inline with traditional tattooing techniques. There is healing and scabbing, peeling and blistering that can be associated with permanent makeup tattooing. That is NOT the case with Port City’s Microblading in California. The issue with permanent makeup for brows is its inability to create the natural and full look that microblading successfully achieves. There is a reason why Microblading is growing in popularity, and quickly too. The results provide a much fuller and natural appearance.
