What is Lip Blushing?

Lip blushing is a semi-permanent tattoo that can enhance the color and shape of your lips and give the impression of more fullness. This is done by depositing color ink into your lips and along your lip line to improve the overall look. The color is subtle to give natural-looking results.

How long does lip blushing last?

Some estimates say lip blushing can last about two years, but results can vary from person to person. Sun exposure and smoking can speed up how quickly your color fades.

What's the procedure like?

Unlike a regular tattoo that uses a needle to deposit ink, lip blushing uses a tiny blade to make cuts into your skin. Ink is deposited into each cut. By lip blushing you can add a layer of color at a time until you reach your desired results

The pain level has been described as minimal. A topical anesthetic is typically applied for about 20 minutes to numb your lips. Then, the technician draws the shape of what you want your lips to look like.

You can enhance your cupid's bow or make your lips look more symmetrical. A lot of times, ink will be deposited into the sides of lips, as those areas tend to lose their natural color as you age.

After the procedure:

You may experience bruising swelling, bruising and redness. You can use ice or a cold compress to help reduce swelling. Avoid hot, spicy, and salty foods as it may cause added irritation. Avoid large bodies of water, direct sun exposure, teeth whitening, rubbing and smoking. Do not pick or scratch the lips as it may lead to a loss of pigment and/or scarring.
