And who says sun, says tan, and in particular perspiration, elements that can seriously damage your tattoo. This is why it is very important to know how to maintain your eyebrow shape and color in summer. Discover, through this article, the different essential steps to take care of your microblading or microshading when the sun and heat appear.
