For others, tattooing is an adjunct to reconstructive surgery, particularly of the face or breast, to simulate natural pigmentation. But mostly if you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, or people who have lost their eyebrows due to (a form of hair loss) may choose to have "eyebrows" tattooed on.
