LIP TATTOO INFO
Lip blush is intended to blend with or change your natural lip colour, giving a more consistent and smooth finish, and in some cases giving the appearance of bigger, more symmetrical and more defined lips. This service can be great at restoring lips that naturally lack pigment or have lost their colour with filler or aging. Lip blush will not give you more volume, and is not intended to go outside the natural lip line.
Some clients, generally those with melanin rich skin, may have darker tones to their lips such as purple or brown. In these cases, if the client is wanting a lighter outcome, neutralisation of these tones is required before we can use our target colour of choice. Additional sessions and precautions need to be made for these clients to heal well.
How semi-permanent / permanent is it?
Semi-permanent means it will fade over time, and that if you want to keep your lips looking vibrant, top up appointments will be needed to maintain this look. Semi-permanent DOES NOT mean it will 100% fade away - this is still a tattoo. The main difference is the inks are cosmetic and specially formulated to allow them to break down over time (as over the years this ages better and allows for changes) so are made slightly differently to body ink. You may always be left with remnants of ink under your skin, even 10 years from now. Everyone's bodies will process the ink differently, as well as your lifestyle choices affecting the longevity of the tattoo.
Because your face is naturally oilier, is exposed to the sun, pollution, cleansing products, make up etc more than other parts of the body you would have tattooed, two sessions spaced 8 - 10 weeks apart are needed for best healed results. Some clients, especially those who; have lip fillers after having their lips tattooed, bite their lips / peel dry skin from their lips, use sunbeds, sunbathe, don’t use sun protection, smoke, have a fast metabolism, use chemical peels or anti aging products or harsh acids/exfoliants, may need more than 1 touch up session to achieve their desired results. Annual refresh sessions can range from 1 - 3+ years depending on desired results.
