42-year-old Jami Ledbetter is suffering after a microblading procedure went terribly wrong and left her with duplicate eyebrows.
The process itself involves tattooing eyebrow strokes with permanent or semi-permanent ink to create a fuller shaped brow — but the woman who claimed to be certified in microblading didn’t exactly do them right.
“It just looked like I was really surprised,” Ledbetter said.
The outcome killed her confidence, and makeup couldn’t even cover up the unprofessional job.
“I was devastated. I was even dating a guy and he stopped dating me at that point,” she said.
After reaching out to multiple licensed tattoo artists for help, Ledbetter found someone.
Kara Gutierrez, a licensed and insured tattoo artist, has specialized in permanent cosmetics and tattoo removal for four years.
Gutierrez was able to remove Ledbetter’s brows with a product called LI-FT, a pigment lightning solution that’s tattooed in the bad ink.
Ledbetter had to pay more than $1,000 for the removal procedure.
