It’s an enhancement
Lip tattoos are designed to enhance your natural lips, and to give the impression of fullness. Using advance 3D make up techniques, we can help your lips look fuller, using shading around the edges and a lighter colour in the middle. But a lip tattoo will not actually plump up your lips, so don’t expect a completely new look.


You can still use lipstick

Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a beautiful base, but it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all. You should never use lipstick during the healing process, but once everything is fully healed up, you can use lipsticks, glosses and balms as usual. You may need to experiment to see how your colours look over your new base colour, but you can still create your own looks with lipstick over the top.


The colour will fade
Because we use skin safe pigmentation in our permanent make up process, which is not the same as traditional tattoo inks, there is a certain degree of fading to be expected. Colours that are very close to your natural colour will probably need touching up once a year, whereas if you go two to three shades away from your natural colour, the touch up may not be needed for a couple of years or more.


You can pick more than one colour
Most good permanent make-up practitioners will use shading techniques to give your lips a more natural look. They may start with a darker shade as a lip liner, fading it inwards in circular motions to give a natural, attractive appearance. This can be followed by the application of a second colour for the infill, blending it perfectly for a plump, healthy and natural finish.


The end result will depend on your skin tone
Not only will the end result vary depending on the base colour of your natural lips, it will also depend on how your skin tone reacts to the pigmentation process. Some people with very dark skin have experienced a condition known as hyperpigmentation when trying to apply permanent lip tattoos. In this situation, their lips could actually end up darker than they started off, even if they picked a lighter colour, so it’s important to consult fully with your practitioner prior to making any decisions.
As with any permanent makeup procedure, it’s important that you go into this with your eyes wide open. Side effects and complications are rare, but do discuss with your practitioner any health conditions or other worries you might have about the process.



  • Do not take Advil or any other blood thinners. Supplements that have blood thinner effects include quai, fish oil, garlic, ginger, green tea,  ginseng, vitamin E, Niacin, Ibuprofen and Aspirin unless necessary for 7 days prior to the lip blush procedure and one day following.  The vitamins and blood thinning medication may increase bleeding and may cause bruising.

  • Do not come to your appointment with dry lips as the procedure cannot be done. If you are experiencing dry lips, we encourage lip masks days leading up to your appointment to keep the lips moist.

  • Avoid any form of exercising day of procedure.

  • Do not consume any caffeine or alcohol for 24 hours prior to your appointment to help prevent bleeding. Alcohol has anti platelet effects and increases your chances of bruising. So, skip the glass of wine before your appointment.

  • Do not come to the appointment if you have a cold sore on your lips as the procedure can't be done.

  • If you are prone to cold sore the lip blush treatment can cause an outbreak and it is recommended to take an anti-viral medication 5 days before and the day of appointment and continue to use it 5 days after.

  • Do not get any fillers for at least 4 weeks prior or after your appointment.


After Care

Swelling is to be expected during and post treatment. Luckily, it does not last very long. Some clients will swell a great deal and some not at all. *Note: You will see more swelling on the upper lip than the lower lip​*


  • Don't scrub or exfoliate lips.

  • Drink liquids through a straw.

  • If you are experiencing a lot swelling, you may apply ice on the treatment area. Ice can help prevent bruising as well. Make sure there is a cloth barrier between the lips and the ice.

  • Do not let the lips dry out apply aftercare when lips feel dry.

  • No exercise for 24 to 48 hours. Physical activity increases your heart rate, blood pressure and blood flow.


Healing process: The Lip tattoo healing process is relatively short. Days 3-5 post procure you will experience dry flakey lips.


Once the pigment flakes fall off it will appear as though NO pigment retained. Over the next 6-8 weeks the colour will gradually bloom to a lovely soft shade. *Do not judge your lips until 8 weeks, it takes that long to fully stabilize in the skin​*


Day 1 to 7 until the scabs are gone avoid the following.


Excessive sweating




Spicy food


You and the practitioner will collaboratively create a design using the pigment colour of your choice.
