Eyebrow tattooing has been around since ancient-Egyptian times, but unlike Cleopatra, modern woman has both an iPhone and a devotion to Instagram, making the whole process a lot more accessible to the masses—ahem, us—who would gladly watch a billion mesmerizing tattoo videos until our eyes glazed over and turned to dust.
And that's exactly what we've done with these 13 videos, ahead. Consider us an expert now on the making of brow tats, which involve nicking the skin and filling in the itty-bitty cuts with pigment for a thick, fluttery finish. It looks just as weird as it sounds, but the "after" shots are so damn satisfying, you won't be able to stop watching, either. RIP, eyes.
