A single mother revealed that she had been dropped after a botched microblading treatment left her four eyebrows.
Jami Ledbetter was born without eyebrows and was delighted when her daughters bought her a good Groupon to get her eyebrow tattooed semi-permanently.
But the mother of three says she was too embarrassed to leave her home in Kansas City after the reduced-price procedure went awry in November 2018.

"I would never wish that to my worst enemy. What I did to my self-confidence was difficult, "said the 42-year-old Fox 4 KC.
"I was devastated." I even went out with a guy and he stopped going out with me at that time.
Ledbetter thought she was undergoing treatment by a "certified" microblader – a technique that involves tattooing someone's eyebrows with small needles or a small blade.
But the practice is unlicensed in Missouri.
Ledbetter was so appalled by the results of the cosmetic procedure that she only went to work and to the grocery store for fear that anyone would see her sloppy eyebrows.
"It was pretty painful," she said. "I tried to have a good attitude, but it burned a lot. We felt like hurt.

The woman tried to hide the eyebrows with makeup – but nothing worked.
She was eventually referred to Kara Gutierrez, a licensed tattoo artist who owns Spot On Beauty Salon in Lee's Summit. Gutierrez specializes in permanent cosmetics, including tattoo removal, and she was stunned when she saw Ledbetter's severely scorned brows for the first time in February.
The unnamed woman who performed the original sloppy microblading would no longer be in business.
