I am a high maintenance person. This is one of the many things I know very well about myself. I’ve tried, in the past, to deny my higher calling and it’s always ended in disaster. For me and those around me (namely my husband).
And so now, when I’m feeling guilty because I’m acutely aware of a high maintenance thing I’m doing, I try to make a joke of it. Mostly so people will still do it while realizing I’m aware of my flaws. 😬👑
But microblading has been on my mind lately. Like a lot. So, I thought I would talk about it.
Here’s the link to the gal I’m referencing in my video whom I would allow doing this to me. I get super stressy about the hair on my head. I can only imagine how I would feel about the few hairs just above my eyes no hat or scarf could cover!
Plus, I’ve even watched Kirbie Johnson’s video about her experience. One thing she mentions is it wasn’t perfect. WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT WASN’T PERFECT!? I’m already feeling the need to pop a Xanax and it didn’t even happen to me! She also says she would absolutely do it again, so there’s that, but I still couldn’t handle the imperfection of it all.
I’ve also got friends who have found someone who does it cheaper than the gal I reference and while I feel the pull to go for the cheaper option, I know I would die a thousand deaths when it turned out worse than I hoped. Again, my husband would suffer. (I can only handle a certain amount of rage before it comes spilling out like some kind of monster.)
So, for now, I don’t think microblading is right for me. I don’t think I can add another high maintenance element to my life without completely giving way to some kind of life-altering axis tilt which would end in world annihilation. (I know, I’m not dramatic at all! Totally rational about all things. It’s like a gift. 💁)
