10 Mar Lip Blush
WHAT IS LIP BLUSH?
Lip blush is a cosmetic tattoo service that tints your lips using a tattoo machine and water based inks. The final result adds color and definition to the lip area. Note: lip blush does not change the shape or size of natural lips. It leaves a soft, shaded-in color that can enhance your lip symmetry, and cover uneven pigmentation or scars.
It is like having on lipstick 24/7 that won't smudge
DOES IT HURT?
A tattoo on the lips sounds painful — and while the procedure is not entirely painless, your artist will use topical anesthesia to dull the pain.
HOW TO PREPARE
We recommend bringing any lip colors you would like the artist to color match with you. If you have a history of cold sores, ask your doctor to prescribe an anti-viral medication a week prior to the appointment. The artist will not be able to go through with the lip blushing procedure if you have an active cold sore. You must be four weeks past any filler or botox treatments around the area.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The lip blush appointment lasts around 2-3 hours. During this time, your brow artist will follow these steps:
- Clean and prep lip area
- 20-30 minutes topical anesthesia
- Measure and map out the shape
- Customize and mix colors
- Tattoo outline of lips
- Additional numbing (if needed)
- Shade the center of both lips
Lip color will heal 30-40% lighter/softer than when it is initially done. A color boost may be required 6-8 weeks after the initial treatment to touch up any areas that need it after healing. Yearly touch-ups with White Rabbit Studios artists are recommended to maintain the desired color.
