Best Pigment for Asian Clients

Some PMU artists find it hard to choose the pigments to use on their Asian clients. When I ask them why, they say it’s because most Asian clients’ don’t heal well, meaning it’s either color will change or will heal patchily.

Let me tell you, there can be a lot of factors why they heal that way. Yes, it can be the pigment, but it’s most probably because of the incorrect technique.

Going back to the colors and pigments, I can still see some artists using JUST BLACK pigments for their Asian clients – this is a big NO! Why? It’s because there’s a 90% chance it will heal blue or grey. 

Shading: If the client’s hair is black, I suggest mixing ebony (black) with medium brown or dark brown. (Tina Davies) 

Microblading: If the client’s hair is black, you can use brown 3. (Phi Brows)

There’s also a good pigment that I just discovered last year, it’s the brand NE pigments. Their colors are really nice and heal true to their color. For Asian clients, I recommend their #105 and #106 pigments.

All these brands have their color charts on their websites, so if you are unsure of which color to use for each client, I highly suggest checking first. 🙂
