Lip Tattoo Melbourne

The idea of Cosmetic Tattooing is intimidating to some. Still, the reality is that permanent lip tattoo is now so complex and precise that results range from small corrective lines to complete facial changes. Advances in semi-permanent makeup technology are why cosmetic lip tattoo Melbourne salons are gaining popularity. This technology improves colour, corrects asymmetry, adds volume, and even reshapes.

The modern interpretation of the best lip tattoo is fundamentally different from the treatment performed in the 90s when the procedure started in Melbourne. Named permanent makeup or Aussies called cosmetic tattoo has a new principle. 

What Is a Lip Tattoo?

Cosmetic lip tattooing does perform with a pen tattooing machine. The needle penetrates the pigment into the upper layers of the skin to a depth of 0.8 mm. Unique pigments have special formulas for cosmetic tattoos and are mineral-based. Lip tattooing pigments are light in texture, contain natural components, have fine sediment, easily absorb the body, and do not cause allergic reactions. The main advantage of such dyes is their gradual and smooth release from the body.
There are many different types and names of lip blend tattoo techniques:  lip blushing, contouring, shadow, nude, powder, pixel, 3D, and shading. Each of these involves the introduction of a particular colour pigment under the skin. The artists work with a unique tattoo machine at a lower speed and frequency than traditional tattooing equipment. The ultra-thin R1 or R5 needles gently stain the entire lip area using different techniques. Let’s take a look at each of them.

Can I Get a Lip Tattoo If I Have Lip Fillers?

Can lip augmentation and tattooing be combined, and when is it necessary?
Lip augmentation and tattooing can combine, however it must have a specific order. The reason for the combination may be severe asymmetry, thin lips, pale or blue skin, blurred borders or simply a desire to have voluminous lips of beautiful colour on a long term basis.

What to do first: Full lip tattoo or augmentation?

There is no categorical prohibition on the sequence of procedures. One must act according to the situation, based on individual needs. But more often, the masters of tattooing and cosmetologists recommend making permanent makeup first and after the increase. And here’s why: 

  1. Lip tint tattoo is a filigree job. The master draws the contour with utmost precision in order to achieve flawless edges;
  2. The tattoo lasts much longer than the augmentation effect. If the augmentation is done before the tattoo, after the hyaluronic acid has dissolved and the volume is gone, a very noticeable asymmetry can occur.

But, having decided to get a tattoo first and then augmentation, keep in mind a few nuances: By augmenting the lips with the filler, the skin is stretched. If you perform the procedure after the tattoo, be prepared that the shade of the lips may become lighter; During the lip augmentation natural lip border becomes more invisible. This is especially true if you have previously had a tattoo done in a contourless technique. Most likely, there will be a need for correction. In the lip gloss tattoo, there is one very important advantage – almost everything can be corrected with the correction. In other words, if the result of the tattoo has changed after the augmentation effect has been passed, it can always be corrected.

Is the Cosmetic Lip Tattooing treatment painful?

Lip tinting tattoo can be classified as a painful procedure. Therefore, the procedure is always performed with an anaesthetic gel. Without an anaesthetic, tattooing is not recommended, and the service is, therefore, contraindicated for pregnant women and breastfeeding young mothers.
If an anaesthetic is used, the pain is minimised. However, the pain threshold and the client’s individual sensation is important. In some cases, even with the use of an anaesthetic, a girl may feel a slight tingling sensation during the process of tattooing. On the plus side, the procedure takes no more than 1.5 hours.

About the lip tattoo treatment

What Does the Lip Color Tattoo Treatment Look Like?

In order to have permanent lip makeup done, you first have to create a sketch and choose a pigment colour. The sketch is then fixed. This is done without anaesthesia with small strokes. Usually, the outline of the sketch is slightly larger than the contour of the lips. After fixation, anaesthesia is applied with special gels, and micropigmentation is performed. All devices used for micro-pigmentation must be sterile to avoid infection. After micro-pigmentation, a specialist will give you initial care and explain the healing process.

Benefits of Lip Tattooing

Quality and the aesthetic result of the procedure depend on pigment colour choice. The colour choice lip tattoo tint depends on many factors, and above all on the type and colour type of female appearance, the shape of the lips, the oval of the face, age and even occupation, and fashion trends. Chosen adequately by the colour pigment using different tattooing techniques, will allow the master to: correct the shape of the lips, hide the unevenness of the natural pigment of the lips and give them an even colour, shade and hide scars on the lips.

Expert opinion

To avoid disappointment caused by faulty pigmentation, reputable aesthetic tattooing professionals recommend trusting your choice of an artist-craftsman to perform the procedure. Why? There are at least two reasons: The permanent makeup artist did training in the theory of makeup and colour techniques. During the training, artists learn the selection methods and the effect of pigments, the nature of their interaction with a particular type of skin. This knowledge allows the colourist to connect to the ideal pigment for each client seamlessly. Each one has blends that are specific to a different colour type. Only an aesthetic beautician can identify it correctly.
