Whether seeking changes in shape, size and/or color, lip tattooing is a great way to get the beautifully defined lips you desire. During adulthood, our natural lip color softens, sometimes giving the appearance of thinner lips. Renewing your lips with a beautiful edge, wonderful definition and an esthetically pleasing color is easily achieved with this procedure.
Before your procedure, it is very important for you to take an antiviral medication. 90% of the population has been exposed to Herpes Simplex more commonly known as Cold Sores. Due to this, it is a necessity for you to obtain a prescription antiviral pill before you have the procedure done. If you have ever been exposed and you get this procedure done without the medication, the procedure will most likely trigger a response in your body that will cause you to break out in cold sores. We do not want this to happen to you. Please consult your doctor or dentist to prescribe this medication prior to your appointment with us.
At the beginning of your appointment, we will play with color! We will use a mirror so you may choose a color that is esthetically pleasing to you. Once you have decided on your color, we will record the color formula and paint the color on your lips to determine size and shape. After you approve of the size and shape, we will rinse off the pigments and a topical anesthetic will be applied to your lips. The topical will set for approximately 30 minutes while you relax, read or check your email. The tattooing is done quickly and precisely with the least amount of discomfort possible.
Since the desired result is a beautifully defined lip area with a natural looking edge, we do not tattoo a lip liner outline.
