Lip Enhancement/ lip blush Tattoo is a subtle approach to a fuller or more defined lip using natural pigments not ink to blend and shade within or outside the natural lip line. This procedure is designed to define the lips, not to create volume or puffiness, it’s not like lip filler but works great if you combine the two if you’re after that particular fullness and look.
Lip enhancement tattoo will give you the appearance of a full lip shade since part of the process is outlining right on the border of the lip then shading toward the inner lip. This helps to give your lips the appearance that they’re fuller and more defined.
Not every lip is symmetrical either, you may want to increase your Cupid’s bow or balance the lip where they may be uneven. Whatever you’re wanting to achieve lip enhancement tattoo can give you more defined lips in a beautiful shades. All you need to do is add a lip gloss and your lips will look amazing 24/7.
On the day of the procedure, an anaesthetic cream is applied for 15 mins on the lips post consult. After you are numb, your lips will be drawn out and measured for accuracy and the colour of your choice will be shown.
The lip tattoo generally lasts between 2 to 5 years however this depends on your skin’s chemistry, active ingredients in your skincare, whitening toothpaste and excessive exposure to UV rays.
