Lip Blush is a lip tattoo that enhances and defines your lips.
It can help enhance and even out natural colour, or add colour if you are lacking any pigment. Your lips will look darker and more like lipstick on the first day, and soften as they heal to become a subtle, natural looking lip tint.
Apply a little gloss or balm and your lips are perfectly kissable!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does it last?
Results will always vary from person to person, after your initial session and the touch up, your results should last between 2-3 years. Additional touch ups may be required depending on the person and look desired. Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink.
Does lip blushing hurt?
Pain levels vary from person to person. Strong medical grade topical anesthetic cream is used before and during your procedure to keep you as pain free as possible.
Will I still have to wear lipstick? And can other colours still look the same on top?
This is up to the look each individual is trying to achieve. The colours I offer are natural and intended to look very delicate. We can certainly enhance your natural colour or add colour if your lacking, but it remains soft and natural. That way when you do decide to change it up and want to wear lipstick it will still look great over top, and can cover you tattoo with whatever colour we decide to use.
Can blushing be done on everyone?
If you have previous cosmetic tattooing, send a message (before booking) with a picture or book a 15 minute consultation before booking your appointment.
Before your treatment:
Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils, vitamin E, niacin, or drink excessive alcohol at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.
Do not take any prescription blood thinners at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.
Discontinue any vitamin A skin care products (Retin-A, retinols) close to the enhancement area at least two weeks prior to your procedure. I recommend not using these products over or around the tattooed area after you receive your cosmetic tattoo. It could cause fading and distortion of colour.
Discontinue use of AHA (chemical exfoliation) skin care products close to the area to be tattooed at least one week prior to your procedure.
No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure.
No botox or fillers in the procedure area less than one week prior.
Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 2 weeks before procedure.
If you have been on prescription Accutane in the past, you must wait at least 3 months before considering this procedure.
It is highly recommended that you avoid sun and tanning bed exposure for 7 days before and after your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit.
