After her daughters got her a Groupon for a microblading session, things went from bad to worse for Jami Ledbetter. The procedure that was meant to give her the perfect brows but left her unable to leave the house - and $ 1000 out of pocket as she was given FOUR eyebrows.
Like many women of her time, Jami Ledbetter, let herself be tempted by microblading: a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. Her three daughters gifted her this session through a nice Groupon voucher. Even though this gift stemmed from good intentions, the experience turned out to be a nightmare. While she just wanted to redraw their shape, the 42-year-old ended up with 4 eyebrows.
Interviewed by American TV channel WDAF-TV, Jami spoke about this tragic episode: "I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.The impact it had on my confidence... It was hard." Even worse, her boyfriend at the time disappeared after seeing the results of her microblading. To get back to "normal", the American woman had to spend $ 1000 for a tattoo artist to fix the botched procedure.
If you are tempted by microblading, you should always make sure you research the microblading practitioner before booking an appointment - making sure that they are well experienced and reputable to avoid ending up in the same situation as Jami.
