If you’ve been keeping up with what’s new then you probably know that microblading is the latest popular trend. It’s a beauty technique that involves tattooing someone’s eyebrows which gives off a more realistic look.

Social media has been filled with a bunch of videos of celebrities and influencers getting it done and now many people are even more eager to get flawless eyebrows.

One mom wanted to achieved just that but unfortunately got way more than what she asked for. Jami Ledbetter, 42, who was born without brows, was given a Groupon voucher to get her eyebrows semi-permanently tattooed. However, the discounted microblading session went horribly wrong, and she ended up with four brows instead of two. Her confidence was shattered and it also led to the demise of a romantic relationship. 

“It just looked like I was really surprised,” Ledbetter said. “I was devastated. I was even dating a guy and he stopped dating me at that point,” she said.

As painful as that was, Ledbetter searched hard and found Kara Gutierrez, a licensed tattoo artist who 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 lightening solution that’s tattooed in the bad ink.

After paying $1,000, she was able to get it removed.
