The person working with neutralizer ink or colour corrector must be very experienced otherwise you end up having another unwanted colour. If your tattooed eyebrows are a blueish black or grey blue colour, you have to be extremely careful with colour correction. You don’t want to turn your eyebrows an even more unnatural shade of green or teal.

  • If your permanent eyebrows are red, but they are the right shape, you might just be okay. You should be able to use a color corrector of green to turn back to brown.

  • If you have ended up with purple permanent eyebrows, there is a solution. You can usually apply a yellow to turn them back to brown.

  • If you have eyebrow tattoos which are in the wrong place, are multi-colored, or too dark, it’s never a case of one and done. You need to do multiple treatments to remove the bad permanent makeup.
