Microblading is a complex cosmetic procedure, so it is natural that an artist needs to choose only high-quality microblading supplies, which directly determines the results of the procedure. In this category you will find all the tools and supplies you need – from needles to pens.

On the market, you can find a variety of tools necessary for PMU, which ensure that the procedure will be performed both with quality and safety. Below you will find the supplies that every permanent make-up artist may need.

Pigments

Pigment is one of the most important elements of the microblading procedure. Every professional artist should have more than one pigment, as different skin tones require different pigments. The final result will be satisfactory only when the pigment is perfectly adapted to the client’s skin tone. Also, it is crucial to ensure that the pigment is of high quality to guarantee beautiful and long-lasting eyebrows for the client. Don’t forget to pay attention to the product’s composition – pigments containing allergens, such as iron oxide, should be avoided. Some of the safest pigments are organic, made from natural ingredients, water-based, and free from alcohol, ensuring complete safety for the skin.

Needles

The work of a PMU professional is impossible without needles. The most important criteria for choosing them is safety and quality, so saving money on needles is not advisable. Consider what needles best suit your needs: whether you need thinner or thicker lines. Never use blunt or damaged needles, as improper needles can damage the skin – they should always be sharp and flawless.

Microblading pen

In addition to high-quality needles, the artist also needs a pen, which is needed to make small incisions on the skin’s surface. Since this tool is used daily during every procedure, it’s crucial to choose a reliable and high-quality one that will last you for many years. Also, think of the material the pen is made of – it should be lightweight and easily sterilised, so you can use the tool, ensuring the safety of the procedure.

Numbing cream

Microblading can be a painful procedure, so to ensure the client’s comfort, it is necessary to use a numbing cream or gel during the procedure. It should be applied to the area where permanent makeup will be applied. The anesthetic reduces the discomfort experienced during microblading, often resulting in only tingling sensations. Since anesthetics do not work the same for everyone, it is crucial to consider what would be the most effective preparation. Typically numbing creams contain completely safe drug lidocaine as the main ingredient, which is used to numb the skin. However, there are anesthetics that contain other painkillers and by using anesthetics with multiple active ingredients, you can ensure that the client remains comfortable during the procedure. It is important to note that some anesthetics are used before the procedure, while others are used during it.

Gloves

Every PMU artist should prioritise safety and cleanliness as their mantra. This involves not only sterilisation, but also protective measures such as gloves and face masks. Wearing gloves while using tools helps protect both the client and the artist. However, when choosing the right gloves, it’s crucial to consider the material – latex gloves can cause allergies and tear easily, so we recommend purchasing stronger nitrile gloves.
