Single Mum Dumped After Botched £190 Microblading Left Her With FOUR Eyebrows.

Jami Ledbetter, 42, who was born without brows, was excited when her daughters bought her a Groupon voucher to get eyebrows semi-permanently tattooed on.

A SINGLE mum has told how she was dumped after a botched £190 ($250) microblading treatment left her with four eyebrows.

Jami Ledbetter, 42, who was born without brows, was excited when her daughters bought her a Groupon voucher to get eyebrows semi-permanently tattooed on.

But the mum-of-three says she was too embarrassed to leave her home in Kansas City, Missouri, US, after the discounted procedure went badly wrong.

“I would never wish this on my worst enemy. What it’s done to my self-confidence, it’s been hard,” she told WDAF.

“I was devastated. I was even dating a guy, and he stopped dating me at that point.”

Jami believed she was having a treatment performed by a ‘certified’ microblader – a technique that involves tattooing someone’s eyebrows on with tiny needles or a small blade.

She was so appalled by the results of the cosmetic procedure she only went to work and the supermarket for fear of anyone seeing her botched brows

 

But the practice is unlicensed in her home state.

She was so appalled by the results of the cosmetic procedure she only went to work and food shopping for fear of anyone seeing her botched brows.

 “It was pretty painful,” she said. “I tried to have a good attitude, but it burned a lot. It kind of felt bruised.”

The mum tried to conceal the eyebrows with makeup – but nothing worked.

She was eventually referred to Kara Gutierrez, a licensed tattoo artist who owns the salon Spot On Beauty in Lee's Summit, Missouri.

Ms Gutierrez specialises in permanent cosmetics, including tattoo removal, and she was stunned when she saw Jami’s badly botched brows for the first time in February.

The unnamed woman who performed the original botched microblading is reportedly no longer in business.
