Botched microblading procedure leaves woman 'devastated' with FOUR eyebrows

Thick, dark eyebrows are all the rage in the beauty world - but one woman's quest for bushy brows ended in disaster when a beautician left her with FOUR arches above her eyes.

Jami Ledbetter, from Missouri, underwent microblading - a beauty technique that involves tattooing someone's eyebrows - after being given a US$250 Groupon voucher from her daughter.

The 42-year-old said she was overjoyed at the prospect of finally having full eyebrows after being born without them.

But she was left with botched inkings that looked completely unnatural.

"I would never wish this on my worst enemy," the distraught mum-of-three said.

"What it’s done to my self-confidence, it’s been hard."

"I was devastated," she added.

Ledbetter is now having the inkings removed by licensed and insured tattoo artist, Kara Gutierrez.

Gutierrez has been using a pigment lightening solution on Ledbetter’s brows, which creates scabs where the brows have been tattooed on, and pulls the dark ink out.

She has been having treatment at eight-week intervals and faces up to three more treatments – costing a total of US$1,000 dollars – before her bad brows are gone for good.

The lesson in all of this? Remember to do your research before getting cosmetic procedures, like microblading, done!
