Lip Shading Tattoo

What is a Full Lip Shading tattoo?

Full shading cosmetic tattoo is perhaps one of the best methods to achieve an expressive lip shape, saturation, and harmonious volume without decorative cosmetics’ daily use. This method of introducing pigment implies total filling the entire area of the lips with the selected shade, which allows you to recreate natural overflows and, at the same time, slightly correct natural imperfections.

Full shading: spectacular lips - no makeup

Full shading, or monochrome, is one of the permanent makeup varieties that allows you to achieve the perfect shape and colour of your lips while maintaining their natural charm. Most importantly, the complete filling of the space performed with a pigment as close as possible to the natural shade. However, if desired, the colour can vary by 1-2 tones lighter or darker – it all depends on the sponges’ initial state and the problems that should level with tattooing.

In some cases, monochrome can perform with a bright pigment, but such a decision should be 100% deliberate and weighed: the bright shade obtained as a result of the session will remain for 1-2 years, and during this time, it can get bored or go out of fashion, and overlap the saturated the tone of the makeup will be pretty tricky. Therefore, when choosing “evening” tones, it is worth weighing everything several times, taking into account the individual features of appearance and be sure to consult with the master – perhaps he will be able to find compromise options that will allow you to maintain a natural tone, adding only a slight touch of sexy brightness to it. Moreover, the broad palette of Perma Blend makes it easy to choose the desired pigment, starting with nude options that are fashionable this season and ending with bright scarlet and burgundy colours for connoisseurs of luscious looks.

Drawing the contour with full shading is not necessary – the sponges are expressive and appetizing even without it. However, if you need to fill them with pigment and correct obvious shape defects, the contour will be very useful – a combination of the two techniques will allow you to cope with any imperfections, giving your mouth a perfect appearance. Most often, a pigment used for contouring a tone darker than the main one, but this rule may vary depending on the characteristics of the client’s appearance and individual wishes.

Distinctive features of full shading

This technique is fundamentally different from other methods of introducing pigment not only in a more expressive result but also in other nuances:

  1. Shading is universal: the pigment variability allows you to give your face a magical charm of naturalness or recreate the image of a fatal seducer – it all depends on your desires.
  2. When feathering, a thicker needle used than when drawing a contour – this allows you to make the lines smooth and harmonious. And the different length and direction of the strokes recreates natural overflows and visually evens out the lips’ micro-relief.
  3. Additional contouring is not necessary but possible, especially if noticeable roughness needs to be corrected.
  4. Pure monochrome is not the best option for dramatically increasing lip volume. This technique focuses on the shade and reference shape of the mouth, and for extra plumpness, you can additionally “highlight” the lips using the Lip light method.
  5. Full shading requires utmost patience and perseverance from the master. For the pigment to lay evenly, you should carefully draw each area, including the folds and curves on the lips – only, in this case, the result will look neat and natural.

Recommendations of cosmetologists

Full shading will be real salvation if you need a long-term and radical solution to the following problems:

  • dull or uneven natural colour, the presence of hyperpigmentation and light spots on the lips;
  • lack of seductive curves or expressionless mouth shape;
  • drooping of the corners of the lips
  • age-related hypopigmentation;
  • the appearance of a mesh of facial wrinkles around the mouth;
  • disproportionate lips;
  • existing scars, scars and other defects.


Full shading, like any other type of tattoo associated with minor invasion, in which the integrity of the skin of the lips is disturbed. Therefore, the procedure has several contraindications:

  1. The pigment’s introduction prohibited in the presence of decompensated diabetes mellitus, cancer, immunodeficiency and mental disorders.
  2. It is worth postponing a visit to the master during an exacerbation of chronic diseases, with an acute course of an infectious process or a cold.
  3. Herpes, dermatitis and other skin pathologies in the mouth area can adversely affect the pigment’s engraftment. Therefore, the lips should care first, and only after that, the tattoo should plan.
  4. During pregnancy and lactation, the female body is unpredictable and highly vulnerable. Therefore, expectant and young mothers should postpone a visit to the salon.
  5. People who are prone to allergic reactions may experience irritation to certain ingredients in the dye composition. Therefore, you should either choose hypoallergenic shading products or conduct an allergy test in advance.

Perma Blend pigments contain eco-friendly hypoallergenic ingredients that do not cause irritation, rashes and inflammation, so they are safe for skin of any type and degree of sensitivity.

5 steps to the perfect lip shading tattoo in our Face Figurati studio based in Melbourne and Brisbane

  • 1. Preparation for tattooing
    For the shading to lie evenly and neatly, the sponges should carefully prepare to introduce the colouring composition. To do this, two weeks before the procedure, take care of deep moisturizing and nourishment of the skin, gently cleanse the lips from keratinized scales with a soft peeling and protect them from adverse effects with the help of special balms.
    If you are prone to the appearance of herpes sores, it is worth drinking a course of vitamins and antiviral agents – this will strengthen the immune system and prevent painful blisters’ formation. And a couple of days before the scheduled visit to the master, limit the use of energy drinks, strong coffee and tea, alcoholic beverages and blood thinners – this way, you will reduce the likelihood of an inflammatory reaction.
  • 2. Selection of shape and pigment
    A careful study of the sketch guarantees a predictable result, which will surely please the future owner of gorgeous seductive lips. Tell the master in detail all your wishes, clarify the critical nuances and rely on his professionalism – together, you can achieve a reference effect from the procedure that will fully correspond to your ideas.
  • 3. Introduction of pigment
    If additional contouring is required, it did first, and then the sponges are shaded to a natural and even result. Total filling takes quite a long time, so tune in to a cheerful wave and relax as much as possible during the session. And to reduce the likely discomfort, the master will treat the lip area with a special anesthetic cream.At the end of the procedure, the inflamed areas treated with a soothing and antiseptic composition, which prevents infection and stimulates the process of repairing damaged tissues.
  • 4. Recovery
    The first couple of hours after shading, the lips may look atypically bright and swollen, and this is normal – after 2-3 days, the inflammation will subside, and the pigment will be able to open fully. At this time, it is better to limit sunbathing, and bathing procedures – this way, the regeneration will take place faster and without pain.
  • 5. Correction
    After 2-4 weeks, when the skin of the lips fully restored, an additional tattooing session may be required, in which the master will bring the shading to perfection, neutralize minor roughness and even out the tone of the pigment.

Full shading is ideal for women who want to emphasize the sponges’ reference shape and volume but do not want to waste time on daily cosmetics application. With the help of a permanent, girls who like stylish lipsticks and expressive gloss will be able to “lighten” their cosmetic bag and at the same time remain attractive and fashionable!
