Semi-permanent lip color decreases the need to reapply lipstick of lip gloss. Lip tattooing helps correct and balance the symmetry of lips that are uneven, too thin, too thick, or scarred. It can also enhance the natural color and shape of "perfect" lips.
Offering Soft & Natural Lip Colors to a More Striking Effect
Before we begin, we will talk with you in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve and what we might recommend to you. This is very much a two-way conversation. We listen, we respond, we advise. Once we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, we draw the lip contour and color on with a makeup pencil. This can be drawn on and adjusted. We will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what it is going to look like.
Using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, we gently apply pigment to the lips using very fine needles. The process normally takes about 3 hours, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. After a lip treatment you are likely to be swollen. Over the next week, your lips will start to heal, meaning they may scab, so it’s important to time this carefully around your schedule.
A second appointment is needed 6 to 8 weeks after your first treatment. This is usually a 90 minute appointment to add more pigment to the lips.
