  • Hi, I'm Nikki Davis.

  • I'm 28 years old and I am getting my eyebrows Micro pleaded for the first time.

  • It was a thing I started thinking about last year.

  • Sometime one of my co workers got her eyebrows micro bladed and she, like, came to work and was breathing about how amazing it Waas and I found myself just like staring at her eyebrows all day.

  • And so then I was like, I should probably do this.

  • I do my eyebrows every day.

  • I didn't do them today, but I do them every day.

  • They started doing them my senior high school just 10 years ago.

  • The amount of time I spent doing my eyebrows depends on the day.

  • If I'm, like, just gonna go, like, do a very basic thing, it takes, like maybe a few minutes.

  • If I'm like trying to look nice for an event than it takes longer, I would say maybe like 10 minutes.

  • Trying to get them even is really hard.

  • It's like a very fine line.

  • Sometimes they look really, really good, and sometimes you look like a Muppet, and there's just you don't know until you master it up.

  • My sister actually was helping me get ready to go to prom.

  • And one of my inspiration voters was the album cover of Beyonce's Be Day.

  • My sister was like, OK, if you want to look like this, if you want to make up to look like this, we should fill in your eyebrows.

  • I didn't want to fill them in because I was like It's gonna be, like, so severe and make my face look so insane.

  • And then when we did it, it actually looked more like me than I was ready for.

  • I, like had been so nervous about Trump like looking Teoh, intense or too intimidating or like overpowering or something.

  • But then when I saw it, I was like, Oh, but that kind of like suits my personality and actually looks more like my face in the way that I imagine that I look when I'm out in the world, and then it just became part of my life, and then I was just doing it all the time.

  • Eyebrows are like architecture of the face.

  • It just feels like you're making a statement that you're here and you're not sorry.

  • It allows me to take up space in a way that I never really thought I could when I was a kid.

  • Before I have this done, one of the things I'm nervous about is whether there any risks involved if there any reactions that I might have and then like, how do I take care of it after it's done?

  • I am a little nervous because I've heard that it is.

  • So I'm going to do it, and we'll just like, see how it looks.

  • I guess the next time I'm here, I just have, like, a brand new things.

  • So I'll see you guys with my new I press you.

  • I was gonna last year for about 1 to 2 years, depending on your lifestyle and your skin.

  • Okay.

  • And are there like, risks involved with it like things that might go wrong.

  • You know, in my career, I've seen over 40,000 procedures and no allergic reactions.

  • How everything we use, it's something you process through your body every day.

  • I'm not saying it cannot happen, but it is very rare.

  • Awesome.

  • So we use a threat to measure some symmetry.

  • Okay, This is something we wanted to do for one.

  • Um, it's a thing that I asked for for Christmas.

  • Look, this together is a big moment.

  • It's still surprising I'm still surprised, like wake up and look like a mess.

  • But have these, like, very together eyebrows in the morning.

  • I would say the amount of time that I saved in not doing the makeup is less than the amount of time that I save and not thinking about it, the amount of time that I spend thinking about them, or like worrying about how they look or worrying that I'm gonna, like, sweat and, like, rub them across my face and then look ridiculous easily like Danny Way that I saved.

  • So that's a huge moon.

  • My eyebrows to me feel like a thing that I could do that sort of make a statement about how bold I am as a person and about how sort of sure of myself I am as a person.

  • And so I feel OK about it.

  • So I'm gonna call my sister.

  • She has not yet seen the eyebrows, so it's very exciting.

  • We're gonna face timer and see what she thinks.

  • You look you.

  • Oh, wow.

  • It's been a true pleasure.

  • It's been an honor and a privilege only God.

  • Thank you.

  • Okay, so welcome you If I The amount of confidence that it's given me is kind of staggering.

  • I feel just like so much more put together all the time.

  • My face looks more like how it looks in my mind and I feel like I look more like the person that I feel like I am just naturally now.

  • So I am more confident cause I just am myself immediately.

  • As soon as I wake up in the morning and just look like myself, even though it's sort of like an extreme thing, I guess, to get like permanent makeup done.

  • Now, I have to do less in order to look the way that looks best money.

  • It just feels like going out into the world and saying with certainty, This is how I look and I'm not sorry really is just something that's for me.

  • It just feels like it speaks to who I am.
