The temporary eyebrow tattoo trend has gone viral on TikTok, proving to be a cheaper alternative to microblading and the reason you can say goodbye to drawing on your brows. Here is everything you need to know about the new trend.


Eyebrow tattoo stickers are temporary stickers for your eyebrows that mimic real eyebrow hair. It’s also a cheaper alternative to microblading. These tattoos work similar to the temporary tattoos you may have used as a kid and last an average of five days. The best part? They can be applied within five minutes.

This is also a trend that may be helpful to those that find it hard to grow the hair on their brows. TikTok user @lovingthisbrunette suffers from alopecia and these eyebrow tattoos have been her go-to. She has shared several videos documenting her experience with them.

In one of her videos she compares the eyebrow tattoo sticker to faded microblading.

TikTok has proven to be the main source of life and beauty hacks as users share their personal tips and tricks with others across the world. Videos based on TikTok users trying out the eyebrow can be found under the hahstags #eyebrowtattoo and #tattoobrows. You don’t need a TikTok account to watch the videos.

The tattoos usually come in packs with different shapes and cost as little as R17.


  1. Choose the shape that best suits you.
  2. Clean the surface of your eyebrows.
  3. Place the sticker on your face.
  4. With a wet make-up sponge or damp cloth press the sticker onto your face for a few seconds.
  5. Peel off the paper to reveal your new brows.



You do not have to shave off your eyebrows to start using the tattoos, instead you just need to find a shape that will cover your existing eyebrows.

Cleanse and exfoliate the area to remove any dead skin before putting the sticker on your skin.

One of the issues of the eyebrow tattoo being a sticker is the shine it gives off. This does dry off but you can use powder to tone it down a little.

You can also fill in your brow stickers like you would your eyebrows to personalise the stencil of the tattoo.
