A cosmetic tattoo lip tint/stain provides a soft, natural enhancement to the lips, helping to create even pigment, create symmetry and restore a youthful warm tone to the lips. The result is a delicate, soft lip stain that doesn’t wash off. Applying lip gloss or lip balm to the lips is a perfect on the go beauty enhancer. This is a great solution for clients who desire a brighter, more even lip tone, and for those who may have an old scar/injury to the lip area that has resulted in pigment loss. It can help to hide imperfections to the natural lip colour. A custom lip pigment is used for each client, starting conservatively and adding darker/lighter tones at the second or third sessions if required.
Please note that not everyone is a candidate for this service and a consultation is needed prior to booking.
If you are prone to cold sores, you must obtain a prescribed antiviral med from your doctor 2-3 days prior to your appointment, as cosmetic lip tattoos can cause outbreaks.
This is a multi-session service, and up to 3 sessions may be needed to achieve the desired effect.
Clients should prepare for 2.5 - 3 hour sessions.
Like all semi permanent cosmetics, healing requires patience. Cosmetic tattooing is a process and results are not obtained immediately. During healing your lips may peel and become chapped. Please use the ointment provided to you to keep your lips moistened and DO NOT pick at your lips as this can cause scaring. Your lips will swell during the procedure so prepare for downtime after your session. Swelling usually goes down within 24 hours.
We use a very effective numbing cream prior to starting your session. Please note that over use in topical numbing agents can distort the colour of the lips as well as affect the condition of your lip skin, therefore, your artist will use lidocaine sparingly during the procedure and only when necessary. Your artist will ensure to work efficiently and your cooperation is essential to a smooth process.
