What are Microblading and Digital Machine techniques


Microblading

A tattooing technique utilising a small handheld tool and a sloped blade consisting of several tiny needles that are used to penetrate the upper layer of the dermis of the skin, gently inserted into the skin, similar to a paper cut, into which the pigment is added manually by the artist. The depth of the needle must be  controlled by the artist.

Digital Machine

Digital Machines are power-driven that deposit pigment on a deeper level into the dermis of the skin. The machine can be fitted with a wide range of needle cartridges, allowing for different techniques to be used. The machine controls the depth of the needle into the skin.

Within cosmetic tattooing disciplines, there are valid reasons to employ both digital and microblading techniques. These are covered in more detail in later chapters.
