The Ultimate Guide to Lip Blush Tattoo Treatments

Are you wanting to enhance your lips without the dramatic effects of Lip Filler?

Making enhancements on the lips using cosmetics is something most women do regardless of whether they’re going out or just because they want to. Lipstick and lip gloss make the lips, indeed, improve our look and make us feel confident. However, they do not last as long as we need them to. Unique Blendz Full Lip Blush Tattoo is a great approach to add naturally toned pigments to blend, shade, define your lip line and create the illusion of a fuller pout.

If having lips with longer-lasting colours that do not come off easily interests you, then getting a lip blush tattoo is something you should go for! Lip Blush Tattoos can also cover unwanted pigmentation, scaring & correcting any asymmetry where possible. It will save you in more ways than one. Not only will it make you look and feel good and positive 24/7. It will also free you from spending extensive time and resources on your daily makeup routine. But first:

What Exactly is a Lip Blush Tattoo? 

Lip blushing is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo treatment that adds tint to one’s natural lips by supplying pigments using a digital cosmetic tattoo machine. It also enhances the shape of said facial features by adding definition and the illusion of fuller lips. Unlike lip fillers, which goes well with this treatment, this gives the lips a more natural look. Plus, in contrast to traditional, permanent body art tattoos, lip blush tattooing only uses semi-permanent pigments that are not embedded deep in the skin. Hence, the result is not harsh and does not give the delicate lips an unappealing colour over time.

Who Can Have a Lip Blush Tattoo?

Not only does a lip blush tattoo treatment allow fuller and appealing lips and save you time from applying and re-applying lipstick every day. It is also beneficial for those who suffer from hyperpigmentation or have uneven lips or scars in the area. The procedure adds light pixelated shading to add symmetry and improve the overall shape and appearance of the lips.

How Long Does the Lip Blush Tattooing Procedure Take & What is the Process?

To achieve a pair of bolder, more vibrant lips with a tinted glow but without harsh lines, you will need to undergo 2 sessions. The initial appointment lasts about 2 hours.

#1. Consultation & Design

A thorough consultation will commence and our advanced artist will tailor the ultimate lip colour for you - whether this is something bright and defined or a subtle natural result. We then commence a customised design by mapping out the lip area for your approval.

#2. The Procedure

Our naturally toned pigments are applied to the lips using a digital cosmetic tattoo machine. The treatment only goes in approximately 1mm & Topical anaesthetic is applied to your lips throughout the treatment to ensure your comfort.

#3. Post Treatment

Directly after the treatments, in some cases, there can be slight swelling & the colour can be approximately 40% brighter for the first few days. Right after the appointment, expect pouty and vibrant lips as if with a filler and lipstick. All our clients receive an Aftercare Pack & instructions when leaving the studio to ensure your treatment is cared for correctly to receive the best results for you. A Touch-Up appointment is required 6-8 weeks later to finalise the treatment. In this appointment, we can brighten and define any areas if required.

#4. The Healing

Lip Blush Tattoo Treatments heal in approximately 5-7 days. On day 1, the lips will be swollen and produce lymphatic fluid, which requires constant wiping with sterile wipes. By days 2 and 3, expect the lips to darken, dry and softly flake away. This is why we supply a complimentary ointment to keep the lips moisturised during this time. On the fourth day, the tattoo will appear gorgeously natural and healed. The colour takes 6-8 weeks to brighten in the skin before coming back for your touch up appointment. For optimal results, follow your Artists aftercare guidelines.

Does Lip Blush Tattooing Hurt?

The lips are a sensitive area, however, only mild discomfort can be felt. Especially when a topical numbing agent is used, clients even feel comfortable enough to the point of sleep during the process.

How Long Does a Lip Blush Tattoo Last?

Similar to other cosmetic tattooing procedures, lip blushing’s results vary from person to person. On average, it lasts between 1-3 years, depending on your lifestyle. Excessive sun exposure and smoking can accelerate the fading process. Oily skin, iron deficiency, and the use of various exfoliating products can speed it up, too.

How Much Does Lip Blushing Cost?

Lip Blushing can cost between $500 and $1500, depending on the studio’s location and the artist’s expertise. At Unique Blenz, you can achieve your dream lips with our Full Lip Blush Tattoo service at $750 including your touch up visit.

How Should You Prepare for a Smooth Lip Blush Tattoo Appointment?

It is recommended to steer clear of alcoholic drinks and caffeine a day before the appointment because these may cause the lips to bruise after treatment. It is also best to avoid taking medications or substances that may cause your blood to thin before your session. Clients who suffer from cold sores can receive this treatment, however, we also advise taking cold sore treatment medication to prevent an outbreak while the treated area is healing. Topical cosmetics should also be kept at arm’s length weeks before to avoid harmful interactions between chemicals and the pigment. Before commencing treatment, your lips must not be dry and thoroughly moistured. We recommend using a moisturizing lip balm and Lip Scrub to remove any dry skin prior to your appointment.

What Lip Colour Should You Wear?

You can choose from a broad selection of subtle, flesh-toned, and natural lip colours. Otherwise, pick a more lively or bolder hue.
