What is a Lipstick Tattoo?

Cosmetic lip tattooing is the process of depositing colour pigments into the dermis of the lips. This is usually done using a small needle, and the colouring pigment is placed in the uppermost layer of skin. The effect of the lip tattoo will last for several months or years before it begins to fade.

There are different types of cosmetic lip tattoos: lip blush, aquarelle technique, lip liner, lip shading, and lipstick tattoo. You can create various looks, from natural-looking lip colours to bold and dramatic designs.

A cosmetic lip tattoo with a full lipstick effect is an excellent solution for girls who want to give the impression that they are always wearing high-quality lipstick.

You may have heard of the popular Lip Blushing technique. It is another permanent makeup tattoo that creates a beautiful and natural hue for the lips. You will love this technique if you are crazy about lip tints. Lip blush is perfect for those who want a more natural lip colour tattoo.

The lipstick technique differs from other lip tattooing options because it requires a more extensive pigment filling to achieve a richer effect. To do this, the tattoo artist performs a dense shading lip tattoo. You can expect a more pronounced contour when you choose this technique.

In both techniques, permanent lip tattoo colors can be customised to the client’s wants.

What Happens During a Lip Tattoo Makeup Procedure

Lip Tattooing takes about two hours from start to finish. The treatment consists of four main steps:

  • Colour selection. The tattoo artist will help you find a lip tattoo colour that is perfect for your face and preferences.
  • Sketching. Sketching is an essential step in the lip-lining process to avoid uneven lips. After cleaning the lips with an antiseptic, the artist will use a cosmetic pencil to draw the outer lip shape, outlining them in preparation for permanent lip color application. Local anesthesia will be used if necessary.
  • Shading. The next step involves filling the area with pigment and shading the lips completely. Lip colouring is repeated until the desired lip tattoo makeup is achieved.
  • Consultation. The cosmetic tattooist will provide you with their recommendations for possible further treatment.

After about a month, the client must return for necessary corrections. The artist will correct away imperfections and adjust the tone saturation to get it just right!

What are the advantages of lipstick tattoos?

Here are the benefits of getting your lips tattooed:

  1. Long-lasting. The tattoo will last for one to three years before beginning to fade! That’s why it is a great idea to get this done if you want your lips permanently stained with colour.
  2. It covers your flaws. Many people get these to cover uneven pigmentation and to mask lip asymmetry, paleness, or scars.
  3. Tattooed lips enhance your beauty. A lip tattoo can give additional volume to your lips. It is also a perfect way to express yourself by using bold lip tattoo colors to make you stand out in a crowd.
  4. Low-maintenance. It is a great way to eliminate the need for constant lipstick application and makeup correction.
  5. Substantial savings. One of the best things about getting semi permanent lip makeup on lips is that you save money by never needing to repurchase another lipstick!
  6. Affordable: Lipstick tattoos are more affordable than traditional cosmetic procedures, such as lip injections or surgery.
  7. Safe: Lipstick tattoos are considered safe when performed by a licensed and experienced professional.

Transformation Photos

Full lip tattooing can create a bold and stunning look. The healing process can take anywhere from 3-5 weeks, and the transformation is amazing! You may notice that in this period, the colour looks much more muted and natural than what the lips look right after the procedure. This is because 40-60% of the pigment will naturally fade during healing.

The photo shows how the pigment is now evenly distributed and can be seen on lips. Visually, the lip colour created by the tattoo looks the same as when you apply expensive lipstick.
The pigment still looks intense and freshly applied even a year after the semi-permanent lip tattoo procedure.

Care tips

Lip tattooing damages the upper layer of the epidermis. It can cause swelling, minor pain, and redness after the procedure. But there is no need to worry!

After just 2-3 days, the body will naturally restore your skin integrity. During this period, the treated area will start to itch and peel. You must fight the urge to scratch. Remember that the skin must come off by itself.

Do not remove or touch the lip area while the skin is peeling. Why? To avoid crust formation on the skin around your lips. This will affect the final result of pigmentation and might even result in uneven lip colour. Worse, you might get scars from too much scratching.

The cosmetic tattoo artist will prescribe a disinfecting ointment for faster healing. Bepanthen or Depanthenol is usually used, which should be applied to the skin every 3-4 hours a week.

It is also important to disinfect the area with Chlorhexidine and wash it with water and antibacterial soap.

The final result can be seen after a month. At about this time, you are advised to go back to your lip tattoo specialist for a mandatory correction procedure.

  • To extend the longevity of lip tattoos, we recommend the following:
  • Do not use cosmetics with high alcohol content or hydrogen peroxide.
  • Avoid ultraviolet light. Use sunblock, a cap, and an umbrella when going out.
  • Do not go to the swimming pool or sauna after the session.
  • Do not scratch the skin.
