What is a cosmetic lip tattoo?

A lip tattoo can add a subtle touch of colour to enhance the cosmetic appearance of your lips. So, if you're seeking a natural-looking definition, a lip blush tattoo is a suitable option for you. On the other hand, if you desire a more dramatic appearance, a lip tint tattoo may be more appropriate. Lip colour tattoos can make your lips stand out while maintaining their natural hue. Whether you prefer a subtle boost of colour or a more noticeable change, a permanent lip tattoo can help you achieve excellent results. With this cosmetic procedure, you can enjoy enhanced and defined natural colour of your lips for years.

Compared to dermal fillers, cosmetic lip tattooing can provide longer-lasting and more effective results when enhancing the size and shape of your lips. If you plan on getting injectables in the future, getting a lipstick lip tattoo beforehand can create a defined shape and serve as a reference for the injector. If you want to undergo this procedure, it's essential to consider your natural skin tone and potential variations in lip pigmentation. This is to ensure that the tattoo colour complements your natural tone.

How to Prepare for a Lip Blush Tattoo?

To ensure optimal preparation for lip blushing, we highly recommend taking the following recommendations into account:

  • Refrain from consuming Aspirin or Ibuprofen for 48 hours before and after the permanent lip makeup tattoo procedure. However, it's important to consult your doctor before discontinuing any medication.
  • Inform your therapist about allergies or sensitivities related to skin pigmentation products or procedures like tattoos, microblading, or permanent makeup. In some cases, a patch test may be necessary.
  • Regularly moisturise your lips with a nourishing lip balm to keep them soft and hydrated. Well-hydrated lips tend to hold pigment better and can contribute to a more successful and longer-lasting lip blush tattoo.
  • Follow the pre-treatment instructions our expert will provide. These may include avoiding certain foods or beverages, abstaining from lip products, or refraining from other treatments in the lip area.

Being aware and wary of potential risks is important when considering a lip blushing tattoo. Lip tattoos can carry an increased risk of complications due to frequent movement and the possibility of ink absorption into the bloodstream. It's advisable to discuss the potential risks with our professional artist and inform her about any medical conditions that may affect your results.

Q : How long does a lip blush tattoo last and will I need touch-ups?

A : A lip blush tattoo typically lasts between 2 to 5 years, depending on factors such as individual skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Over time, the pigment gradually fades and thus to maintain the desired intensity, touch-up sessions are recommended 4-9 weeks after the procedure.

Q : Is a lip blush tattoo painful? What can I expect during the procedure?

A : A topical numbing cream is applied to minimise discomfort. While individual pain tolerance may vary, most clients report minimal discomfort, describing the sensation as slight tingling or pressure. Our experienced artist prioritises your comfort and will ensure the process is as gentle as possible.

Q : Can lip blush tattoos be customised for a specific lip colour or shape?

A : Absolutely! Whether you desire a subtle enhancement or a more defined look, our skilled artist will work with you to select a shade that complements your skin tone and achieve your desired lip colour. Additionally, we can customise the lip blush tattoo to enhance your lip shape, creating a result that appears natural and harmonious with your facial features.
