Microblading: The Real Story

What is microblading?

It appears that micro-

blading is the use of hand tools, consisting of fine

needles, to create fine incisions in the skin of the

eyebrows in which pigment is deposited into the

dermis and epidermis to give the appearance of

eyebrow hair. The pigment may fade overtime,

as is true for traditional tattoos, but considered

permanent.

IS IT INTHE SCOPE OF PRACTICE OF ESTHETICS?

The practice of esthetics is defined in ORS

690.005(5) as follows:

“Esthetics”means any of the following skin care

or facial care practices performed on the human

body or face for the purpose of keeling the skin of

the human body or face healthy and attractive and

not for medical diagnosis or treatment of disease or

physical or mental ailments:

(a) The use of the hands or mechanical or electric

apparatuses or appliances for cleansing, stimulat-

ing, manipulating, exfoliating or applying lotions or

creams.

(b) Temporary removal of hair.

(c) Makeup artistry.

(d) Eyelash services.

(e) Facial and body wrapping.

(f ) Facial and body waxing

Due to limited scope of practice it does not ap-

pear that microblading is in the scope of practice for

an esthetician.

IS IT INTHE SCOPE OF PRACTICE OF TATTOOING?

ORS 690.350(9) defines “tattooing” as follows:

“’Tattooing’means the process by which a live hu-

man being is marked or colored by insertion of

non-toxic dyes or pigments to form indelible marks

for ornamentation or decoration.”

Based on the definition and the plain language of

the statute it appears that microblading does not fit

within the definition of esthetics, but does fit within

the definition of tattooing.
