A single mother has revealed that she was dumped after paying for a botched microblade session which cost £190 that left her with four eyebrows.
Jami Ledbetter, 42, from Kansas City, Missouri, had no eyebrows when she was born, so when her daughter gave her a Groupon gift to get her eyebrows tattooed on semi permanently, she was delighted.
However the outcome of the £190 beauty treatment left Jami too embarrassed to leave her house.
Jamie was born without any eyebrows. “I would never wish this on my worst enemy. What it’s done to my self-confidence, it’s been hard,” she told WDAF of the microblading results. “I was devastated. I was even dating a guy, and he stopped dating me at that point.”
Jamie was under the impression that her procedure would be performed by a ‘certified’ microblader, however, the practice is unlicensed in her home state. She said: “It was pretty painful. I tried to have a good attitude, but it burned a lot. It kind of felt bruised.“
Jamie was left with four brows following the procedure where she tried to conceal the botched brows with make-up, but nothing seemed to work. She was then referred to Kara Gutierrez, a licensed tattoo artist who owns the salon Spot On Beauty in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
Once Kara saw Jami’s eyebrows, she was so shocked she had to hold back tears. “It took everything in me to hold back tears because this is the worst I’ve ever seen,” said Kara.
Microblading is a form of tattooing where pigment is implanted under your skin, with results lasting between one to three years depending on skin type.
Kara has been using a pigment lightening solution to create scabs and pull the dark ink out. Jami has received corrective treatment since the incident every eight weeks, although she will require three more appointments, which will cost a total of £764.
She said: “If I would have known it was going to turnout like this, I probably would’ve never done it at all.” The woman who botched Jami’s brows in the first place is said to no longer be in the business.
