Lip tattoo 101
Here at Brows Inc, we pride ourselves in our transparent, informative and widely educated way. If we don't know, we will find out. Cosmetic tattoo has grown and changed so much in the last few years, and we are here to offer you the best service available.
Lip tattoo comes in a few flavours. Lip blush, which is a touch darker/brighter than your own lip colour to create an even, lip bitten look. Like a watercolour version of lipstick. Gloss and go. It is a great base for lipstick and brings back borders that have faded or changed with age and scarring. It is a very subtle yet life changing procedure. We also have lip stick effect. This is a more saturated look, where more pigment is laid to balance and define the lips. We also offer another version that has a more defined lip line and an ombre effect towards the middle of the lips.
All of the aforementioned techniques are the same, it is just a difference in saturation of pigment and how much is laid. Now we would like to offer some information to those who are interested yet hesitant!
Lip tattoo is a semi permanent technique using permanent tattoo pigments. The pigment, like anything with colour, dye, ink, fades over time. Photosensitive like your favourite pair of black pants, if exposed to UV, will fade the pigment faster. The molecules of the pigment are large and sit in the tissues, unable to be broken down by the body and removed. Here, we use high quality, stable pigments that are highly pigmented, therefore needing less pigment to be laid to achieve the best colour. That means that over time and as the pigment fades, there is still room to add more colour.
There are a few contraindications:
Pregnancy and breastfeeding
Haemophillia and clotting disorders
Lesions on the lips
