What You Need To Know About Lip Tattooing


Lip blushing or tattooing is a semi permanent makeup that involves the use of small needles to deposit pigments in your lips. This professional procedure allows reddish pigments to be inserted into your lips, giving you luscious pink lips. Lip blushing is a cosmetic enhancement which alters both the color and shape of your lips to create healthy and younger looking lips.


If you have dark pigmentation on your lips, or aspire to change the appearance or color of your lips, lip blushing may be for you. There are several aspects of lip blushing you should remain informed of, before getting it done. 


How Is Lip Blushing Done?


The lip blushing procedure is very similar to tattooing. It is initiated with numbing your lips so that the procedure is painless and you experience least discomfort. The tattoo expert also allows you to choose your desired lip and shape, and provide the sketches for you to approve. The tattoo artist then traces it onto the desired area of your lips. Once the shape and color is approved, the next step is to insert a natural-looking into your lips using small sterile needles. It is done in multiple layers to create an even tone. The procedure may take up to 3 hours.


How Long Does It Take To Heal?


It may take about two weeks for the tattoo to heal. So, it is important to understand all aftercare techniques and follow them. Using antibacterial mouth rinse for the inside can help while also keeping the outside mouth area clean with soap. 


Are The Results Permanent?


Lip blushing is a semi-permanent procedure, and as the name suggests the results only last for a few years after which it must be repeated in order to maintain the tint. The tattoo ink gradually wanes as your dermis and epidermis heal. In addition, frequent lip exfoliation, exposure to sun, and smoking can cause the pigment to fade quicker. However, with proper care and maintenance, you can ensure longevity. You can also seek advice from your tattoo artist for color recommendations that could help your ink stay a bit longer. 

What Are The Side Effects?

Being a non-invasive aesthetic procedure, the risks involved are minimal. Some of the side effects in lip blushing are the same as tattooing. Swelling, redness, and pain are commonly experienced for a brief period after the treatment. These minor side effects can be expected to decrease as your lips heal. Failure to provide proper aftercare for healing may result in infections. Excessive swellings and worsening pain, although rare, warrant a doctor’s attention.
