Why Lip Blush/Tattooing?

The year is now 2022, so chances are you have already heard about Cosmetic Tattoo procedures, and if you are curious about why they are so popular… we recommend you read on from here.

Thanks to the increasing interest in eyebrows over the years, Microblading & other tattooing techniques are becoming the new normal. But eyebrows are just the beginning. Lately, we have seen a huge peak in interest in lip colour tattooing, making it possible to roll out of bed to maintain that fresh, lippy look. But not only that, it’s a bonus to have a lip colour that won’t smudge or fade no matter how many coffees (or cocktails) you take on throughout the day.

So, what is Lip Blush / Tattooing?

Despite being such a small and delicate area, professional inking can help to add definition, enhance colour, and create symmetry.

Also known as Lip Blushing or Lip Tinting, this tattooing technique uses your natural lip shade to add a deeper layer of pigment, that will leave you with the type of subtle colour you hope to have when waking up in the morning. Keep in mind that the skin on the lips doesn’t retain pigment as well as other parts of your skin, so some of you may need two or three touch-ups.

Whom is Lip Tattooing suited to?

lifestyles. If you are looking for a subtle colour or have lost pigment in your lips as you age, then this treatment is suitable for you. Any problems will be detected in a consultation, though we wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with too much lip filler as colour can be extremely difficult to take.

The hint is in the name ‘tattoo’. So, it’s important that you think of what colour you want to go for. If you have a fav lipstick in mind, you can take this to your appointment as an example. It’s always best to start subtle, as colours can then be intensified over time and at touch-up appointments if desired. However, we’ve started to see people going bolder which can look effective.

A healing balm will usually be provided following your appointment and should be applied 2-3 times a day until the area is healed. You should never apply lipstick on top of your lip blush while it’s healing as you don’t want to risk infection and you would also need to avoid going to the gym or sitting in the sun for a week after the procedure.
