Lip Tattooing

Lip Blushing Tattoos London

More and more women are opting for permanent makeup treatments such as brow tattoos, semi-permanent eyeliner, and lip tattooing, also known as semi-permanent lip blushing or lip tint. The major benefits of semi-permanent makeup include it saves time in the mornings, and your makeup always looks perfect! A lip tint cosmetic tattoo will furthermore improve the symmetry of the lips. Lip tattooing can’t actually make your lips bigger. Still, it can give the illusion of fuller lips, and it is becoming a popular alternative to lip fillers, which generally last a fraction of the time tattooing does.

Fuller Lips For a Glamorous Appearance

Lip tints are great for refining the lips; especially as we get older, our lip line starts to ‘break up,’ which ages the face. A line is tattooed around the lips along the vermilion border first, and then colour is added to the lips. Some clients still prefer to have a semi-permanent lip liner, but if you want a more natural look, albeit enhanced, it’s best to add colour on the inside or keep the line fairly thin and in a more neutral colour. Adding colour also eliminates the need for lip makeup.

Different Colours

If you’re having a colour that’s close to your natural lip colour, you don’t have to have colour completely over the lips, you can have what I call a volumizing lip blush: a flush of colour going towards the centre of the lips. But If you are opting for a strong colour, I would advise having full lip colour.

If your skin tone is naturally dark, and you have dark or variegated (darker on the outside, lighter in the middle) lips, you will need to have what’s called lip neutralisation performed first. This is where colour, usually orange or yellow is added to the darker cooler parts of the lips to blend the variation in lip colour.  This is usually done over the course of two to three treatments depending on how deep the variations are.  Lip blush is then added at a further treatment.
