Permanent Lip Blush
A cosmetic lip tattoo is a treatment that involves inserting pigments beneath the surface layer of the skin of your lips.
It can be done in several styles, from the opaque permanent lipstick, shape-perfecting permanent lip liner, to the sheer pop of color through lip blushing or aquarelle lips.

It can also lighten dark lips and give them a warmer color, and even camouflage scars.
Since permanent makeup isn’t done with tattoo ink anymore but rather PMU pigments, the lip tattoo does not last forever.
The semi-permanent lip color gradually fades and it requires occasional touch ups to stay fresh.

Permanent Lip Blush / Lipstick FAQs
What Does Lip Tattoo Aftercare Entail?
After the treatment, your lips need some special attention to heal properly.
They’ll go through several stages including swelling (you can relieve it with an ice pack) and peeling, and they’ll fade into a shade 50% lighter than right after the treatment.
The severity of the symptoms depends on how saturated in pigment the lips are.
In any case, you will need to follow an aftercare routine prescribed by your artist for about 10 days.
How Do I Prepare for Lip Tattoo Treatment?
In order to prepare for the treatment, avoid taking the following medications, substances, and vitamins that cause your blood to thin:
• Alcoholic beverages
• Caffeine (coffee and tea)
• Fish oil
Also, avoid exfoliating skincare products and any medications that thin out the skin.
It is vital to take anti-viral medication before your procedure if you’re prone to cold sores.
They can appear due to the trauma of tattooing and affect the healing process.
If you have any conditions or diseases, consult your doctor and check if you are a candidate for the PMU lips treatment. Do not have Botox or fillers at least 6 weeks before the treatment.
How Do I Choose a Permanent Lip Color?
The permanent lip color can be done in any shade of red, pink, or orange, but since the results last up to 5 years, you want to be sure you’ll like wearing the color for all that time.
That’s why most clients go for subtle, flesh-toned shades that are suitable for any occasion and match any makeup look.
Your artist can help you with the color choice, and you should take their recommendations seriously. They have a sharp eye and an extensive knowledge of PMU color theory, so they’ll be able to match the pigments to best complement your skin tone and undertone.
Note: Having the lip tattoo treatment during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity.
Who Isn’t a Good Candidate for Permanent Lipstick Treatment?
Getting PMU lips is not safe for you if you:
• Are under 18
• Are pregnant or nursing
• Are undergoing chemotherapy
• Have hemophilia
• Have major heart problems or a pacemaker
• Have had an organ transplant
• Have uncontrolled high blood pressure
• Have diabetes (consult your doctor, it may be possible)
• Have psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, or another skin condition in the area
• Have an auto-immune disease (consult your doctor, it may be possible)
• Have anemia (pigment may not be retained properly)
• Have a history of keloid scarring or hypertrophic scarring
• Have a history of cold sores
• Take blood-thinning medication
• Take Accutane or steroids
Note: If you have ever had cold sores or herpes on the lips, you will need to take special antiviral medications in the period leading up to your lip tattoo treatment.
These have to be prescribed by your GP. The most common prep therapy is Zovirax or Valtrex for about 2 weeks. Otherwise, the tattooing will make your herpes flare up.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Lip Tattoo?
Anyone who likes wearing lipstick but doesn’t like the hassle of applying it several times a day. Also, women who want to add some volume to their lips.
The lip tattoo won’t do as much as lip fillers, but it will definitely make your lips look fuller.
A special technique called lip neutralization was designed to warm up the color of melanin-rich lips and even out their tone.
Permanent lipstick is also great for uneven lips. It will hide any shape imperfections and make the lips more symmetrical.
