Yes.  Most dyes should not effect the health of your hair whether your eyebrows or your head.

If your eyebrows have healed and grown in, meaning it is several months post-surgery, dying them should not cause damage to the rooted follicles. However, be mindful that harsh chemicals like bleach can dry out and damage the hairs themselves, even if they do not come out at the root.

Eyebrow transplants usually are harvested from scalp hair. They can be dyed the same as scalp hair without danger of harming the hairs if proper technique is used.
