Microblading differs from standard eyebrow tattooing, as each stroke is created by hand with a blade that creates fine cuts on the skin, while eyebrow tattoos are done with a machine and a single-needle package. Microblading is generally used on the eyebrows to create, enhance or reshape their appearance in terms of shape and color. It deposits the pigment in the upper region of the dermis, so it fades faster than traditional tattooing techniques, which deposit the pigment deeper into the skin. Microblading artists are not necessarily tattoo artists, and vice versa, since techniques require different training.

At the same time, microblading's lifespan of 1 to 3 years makes it the ideal choice for customers who like to change their appearance as trends come and go. And now, las vegas is one of the most popular places to get treatment, not least because it has practically become the microblading training center in the United States.
So I don't think any Western permanent makeup artist discovered microblading in a hidden geisha treasure box.
