So what is a blush lip treatment?

Blush Lip tattoo it's a form of a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing makeup, that enhances the colour and shape of your natural lips. This form of tattooing has grown increasingly popular over the last few years due to its low maintenance and beautiful results. Unlike the older forms of lip tattooing from 10 years ago, lip blushing tattoo is a new, modern form of getting your lips tattooed, that provides a more natural-looking result.

How Long does a Blush lip tattoo last?

Blush lips can give you the fuller lip effect that can last anywhere between 3-5 years depending on the intensity of the colour that you are wanting to have applied.

What are the benefits?

One of my favourite benefit of this treatment is that it can boost confidence in women who may have thin, pale or scarred lips. It is often a treatment that is empowering for people who have had injuries to their lips or mouth that left them with scars, as it can reshape their lips and completely transform their look.

Can I have this procedure if I have lip fillers?

Yes! Lip fillers aren't a problem at all, however, if you have recently put lip fillers you need to wait for 3 to 4 weeks till the fillers settle before going ahead with blush lips.

Lips Straight after the procedure, colour still fades up to 60%.
Lips Straight after. Colour will fade up to 60%.

Can you make my lips bigger?

This it's actually one of the most common questions I get and I think it even deserves a Blog post on its own, but I can say, Yes and No. Yes, it will give you definition, shape and colour which ultimately gives you the bigger lip look, however, with blush lips we can't tattoo over the border of your natural lips, so if you are concerned about lip volume, maybe we need to add a little lip filler to the mix.

Does it hurt?

You’ve bitten your lip before, haven’t you? When you bite your lip you experience some pain, but blush lips it's not that painful at all, a majority of clients who have gotten a blush lip have said the pain is a measly 3/10. So it’s really not that bad, especially when we add a bit of topical numbing cream.

Can anyone have this treatment?

Like any other form of semi-cosmetic tattooing, a consultation is required to access your suitability for this procedure, you can book a consultation online here, or you can email me at: requesting an online consult.

Is there a downtime?

Lips can heal incredibly fast, you will have a feeling that your lips are completely healed within 7 days, however, it can take up to 5 or 6 weeks to have your lips fully healed and ready for a touch-up session if needed. Directly after the procedure, it's quite common to have some minor to mild swelling for the first 24 to 48 hours, also the colour will appear brighter, fading over up to 60% in the first 7-10 days.

Before I go just one last reminder! When you are searching for someone to do this treatment for you, do your research and choose wisely! Because this is a fairly new cosmetic treatment there are a lot of businesses offering deals to entice people to come to them and get their lips done… But more often than not these “specialists” are not always trained appropriately and have not enough experience, which is why it is vital that you do your research by reading their Google reviews, checking out their work on their website and Instagram to ensure you the best results.

Till next time!
