WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A woman from Kansas City, Missouri was dumped by her boyfriend after a discounted microblading procedure left her with four eyebrows.
- Jami Ledbetter was born without eyebrows so her daughters bought her a $250 Groupon for microblading.
- The 42-year-old mom ended up paying $1000 to get a licensed tattoo artist who has been correcting her botched brows using a pigment lightening solution.
A single mother from Kansas City, Missouri has revealed that the man she’s been dating dumped her after a botched microblading treatment left her with four eyebrows.
Jami Ledbetter, who was born without eyebrows, and was so excited when her daughters gifted her a $250 Groupon voucher in November 2018 to get semi-permanent tattooed brows.
But after the discounted procedure, the 42-year-old lost her self-confidence and was too self-conscious to go out.
“I would never wish this on my worst enemy. What it’s done to my self-confidence, it’s been hard,” the mom of three told Fox 4 KC. “I was devastated. I was even dating a guy, and he stopped dating me at that point.”
Microblading is a procedure that involves tattooing someone’s eyebrows on with tiny needles or a small blade, according to Fox News.
Ledbetter thought the person who performed her microblading treatment was “certified.” However, the practice is not licensed in Missouri.
She was so horrified by the results of the procedure that for almost three months, she only went out to work and food shopping.
“It was pretty painful,” Ledbetter said. “I tried to have a good attitude, but it burned a lot. It kind of felt bruised.”
The single mom tried to conceal the two extra eyebrows using makeup but nothing worked.
Eventually, she was referred to Kara Gutierrez, a licensed tattoo artist who specializes in permanent cosmetics, including tattoo removal. The owner of the salon Spot On Beauty in Lee’s Summit was shocked to see Ledbetter’s botched eyebrows when she first saw her in February.
Gutierrez has been using Li-ft — a pigment lightening solution — on Ledbetter’s extra eyebrows to remove them. It will cost her at least $1,000 to have a full removal procedure.
‘If I would have known it was going to turn out like this, I probably would’ve never done it at all,’ Ledbetter said.
The unidentified woman who performed her original botched microblading procedure is reportedly no longer in business.
