Is Permanent Makeup Painful?

I am fed up of my thin and sparse eyebrows. I long for a thick and shapely set of brows, but the fear of pain has me turning my back on microblading for eyebrows. Even the very thought of needles pricking my skin and drawing blood as they mark the brows has me almost in a swoon.
Recently, I broached the subject of permanent eyebrows with Marcelle of M Day Spa during my oxygen facial. I recoiled in horror when she suggested that it would bring my face to life by filling out my light brows.
She kept reassuring me that all permanent makeup treatments are done after applying a topical anesthetic cream that not only limit the pain but also the swelling post the treatment. She showed me the microblading pen and said the needles were very fine when compared to regular body tattoo ones. She tried to bolster me saying all I will experience is slight discomfort like scratches or irritation.
I was quite enthused when she took out some before and after pictures and I agreed to check with some of her previous clients. The people I spoke to understood my anxiety very well and said that they too were pleasantly surprised that the actual pain was nothing when compared to what they had been apprehensively expecting. In fact, a few told me that I should inform Marcelle immediately if there is too much pain or irritation as it is definitely not normal.
Finally, I decided to go ahead with the microblading for eyebrows, but was still nervous. Marcelle made me relax and now I must say, the whole thing has been so freeing! The needles were quite tolerable and I don’t find myself cringing every time I glance in the mirror anymore!

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
