Lip Tattoo

Permanent lip liner and color can improve the appearance of lips for women and men. It helps lips appear more defined without surgery or fillers and restores color to lips that are too pale. Permanent lip liner eliminates the daily use of pencils to outline, fill-in, or reshape lip borders. Permanent lip color decreases the need to reapply lipstick or lip gloss. Lip tattooing helps correct and balance the symmetry of lips that are uneven, too thin, too thick, or scarred. It can also enhance the natural color and shape of “perfect” lips.

Lip Shape, Design, and Color

Lips are an important beauty feature of the mouth. They form a smile and show emotions. They help “frame” a person’s teeth and determine attractiveness. When lips are well shaped and balanced, they align with the center of a person’s face and have even sides. The upper lip and lower lip should match and should be equally proportioned. A flattering Cupid’s bow (the top “points” of the upper lip) is one that is not too flat, pointy, or rounded.

Lip Tattoo Techniques

Blended Lip Liner: This method is for anyone who wants a lip liner that appears soft. Doctor creates a liner on the lip border and then shades it inward slightly so it appears as if the person’s lipstick has been eaten-off. This technique is more attractive than a lip liner by itself (plain line) which can appear harsh and unnatural. Uneven lip borders can be balanced with this procedure.

Full Lip Color with Liner: This method is for anyone who wants the appearance of wearing lipstick with a defined lip line. Doctors first create a liner on the lip border then implants color inward throughout the fleshy part of the lips. When healed, lip gloss can be worn alone or different colors of lipstick can be applied on top. Uneven lip size can be adjusted by tattooing just outside or inside of the edges of the lips to balance thickness. Uneven lip borders can also be balanced with this procedure.

Follow-up and Maintenance Appointments

Your lips will gradually lighten and the color will stabilize over several weeks following your procedure. Lip tissue is different from regular skin, so it loses the most color following an initial tattooing procedure. Your lips will probably heal lighter than you want, but they can be darkened with a second application of pigment at a follow-up visit (“touch-up”). A follow-up might be needed to adjust shape or add color to areas that healed lighter from tissue swelling and bleeding during the tattooing process. Ideally, your second visit should be completed between 4 to 8 weeks post procedure. Because permanent makeup can fade over time, you can schedule maintenance visits every few years to keep your color looking fresh.
