What Is an Eyebags Tattoo?
An eyebags tattoo is a new beauty trend to tattoo the dark circles under the eyes to make the skin appear lighter. The pigment sits one layer under the skin to act as a buffer between the surface of the skin and the underlying darkness.
There are some things to keep in mind if considering getting an eyebags tattoo. The skin under the eye is sensitive and if you aren’t careful, it can cause an infection around the eyelid or a cyst or stye could grow around the hair follicles. It also doesn’t address the underlying cause of the dark circles and it’s a temporary solution. The main reason for under eye circles is a change in the fat pads under the eyes. Too much or too little fat tissue under the eyes can result in dark circles being visible. One of the best ways to correct this is to fill it in with injectable filler or correct it surgically. However, an eyebags tattoo does provide the temporary solution without the need to constantly apply concealer.
