Microblading with Oily Skin

There are many reasons that people are not great candidates for Microblading and oily skin is one of them. While Nicole doesn't feel comfortable Microblading some with certain conditions, oily skin can be microbladed with certain precautions. Why?

The appeal of microblading is the "natural" look the strokes present, but with oily...
