Welcome to every girl’s worst nightmare, or at least, top 5 worst nightmare — having your eyebrows completely and utterly ruined for life.

20-year-old Tyne, a care worker from Coventry, was left with four eyebrows after getting permanent eyebrows tattooed in the wrong place, having completely plucked away the originals.
The trouble is that Tyne actually got her brows tattooed on when she was 15 (let’s put aside how illegal that is for a second) and thus she was still growing, meaning that when her natural eyebrows began growing back, she realised the tattoos were in the wrong place.
Tyne very astutely says:
My eyebrows are horrendous. I have my natural set and then tattooed eyebrows above.
One is higher and thicker than the other, one is thicker, one is thinner. I am stuck with four eyebrows. They are the biggest mistake I have ever done in my life. I am willing to go through anything to get a natural look.
This whole thing started when Tyne obsessively over-plucked her eyebrows as a youngster, starting at age 10. Five years later she got the permanent make-up done which she initially loved:
At first I loved them, it was the answer to my prayers. I thought that was it, I wouldn’t have to worry ever again.
Sadly she forgot to take into account that plucked eyebrows grow back and two years later her natural brows grew back underneath the tattooed ones:
That was when I realised my tattooed eyebrows were in completely the wrong place.
She’s spent the last 3 years putting on make-up for 2 hours every day to hide her double-brow:
It is a nightmare. I spend £150 a month buying different products to cover it up, it costs a fortune.
She’s now undergoing laser removal surgery to break down the pigmentation in her tattooed eyebrows, so they can eventually disappear and she’ll be left with the eyebrows she was born with.
I will be glad to see the back of my double eyebrows. I will go through whatever I need to do remove them.
Good stuff. Look on the bright side though Tyne – at least your eyebrows aren’t as shocking as these girls’.
