Frequently Asked  Questions

What is lip blushing and lip tattooing?

Lip blushing and lip tattooing are cosmetic procedures that involve the application of pigment to the lips to enhance their color and shape, creating a semi-permanent makeup look.

Lip blushing and tattooing provide a long-lasting solution, as they use pigments that are inserted into the skin. Traditional makeup can smudge or wear off throughout the day.

The level of discomfort varies from person to person. Most practitioners use a topical anaesthetic to minimise pain during the procedure.

A single session typically takes around 2 to 3 hours, including consultation and aftercare instructions.

Lip blushing and tattooing results are semi-permanent and can last from 1 to 3 years. The duration varies based on factors such as individual skin type, lifestyle, and sun exposure.

There is usually some redness and swelling after the procedure, which may last a few days. The lips may also appear darker immediately after the procedure before fading to the desired colour.

Yes, you can still apply regular lipstick over your lip blushing or tattooing to change your lip color, but many people find that they no longer need to use lipstick as often.

During the healing process, the lips may scab or peel, and it’s crucial to keep them moisturised and avoid picking at the scabs. Follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner.

Common side effects include swelling, redness, and potential scabbing during the healing process. In rare cases, there may be issues like infections, allergic reactions, or colour fading unevenly.

Lip blushing and tattooing are suitable for individuals who want to enhance the colour, shape, or definition of their lips. However, it’s important to consult with a qualified practitioner to ensure the procedure is appropriate for your specific needs and medical history.
