Jami Ledbetter, who was born with no eyebrows was delighted when her kind daughters gifted her with a $250 Groupon voucher to get them microbladed.
The person carrying out the procedure claimed to be a certified microblader.
When getting something like this done, you would hope the practitioner will know what they’re doing, and you’ll be left with a lovely set of eyebrows but that was not the case for Jami who was shocked at how poorly they had been done.
This botched procedure meant her confidence was affected. Jami even refused to leave the house except to go to work and to pick up groceries.
She explained to WDAF:
“What it’s done to my self-confidence. I was devastated. I was even dating a guy, and he stopped dating me at that point.”
Thinking of a solution, Jami, 42, found another microblader who promised her she could camouflage the older brows, but instead she ended up with four brows.
Since then she’s now met up with licensed tattoo artist Kara Gutierrez, who said:
“It took everything in me to hold back tears because this is the worst I’ve ever seen.”
Gutierrez is now using a lightening solution on Jami’s eyebrows which will help to pull out the colour.
Jami, now having to spend $1,000 to correct the brows, has to undergo the treatment at eight-week intervals and has around three more treatments before the brows will be back to normal.
“If I would have known it was going to turnout like this, I probably would’ve never done it at all.”
It’s been reported that that the unnamed ‘artist’ who did the initial both job has since gone out of business.
