Lip Blush & Tint
Lip Blushing or Tradional Lip Tint Tattoo
LIP BLUSH -A soft and subtle blush of color defining the shape and giving the appearance of plump lips.
Lip blush is a more natural approach to a traditional lip tattoo. We use a shading technique to create a soft and natural color that resemble a lip tint to a complete blushed lipstick effect with or without lining of the lips
Lip blushing recreates lost definition, brightens pale lips, or makes dark lips 2 shades lighter with a peachy tone
Unlike a traditional lip tattoo lip blushing creates a stronger definition around the lip line and graduate color towards the center of the lips. It is important to choose a shade that looks subtle and natural, usually two tones darker or a tone lighter than the your natural lip color. Subtle colors can always be refreshed over time. The color retention is different and depends on a client’s skin, lifestyle, and proper aftercare

The color retention will depend on a number of factors, such as lifestyle, skin type, sun exposure, health condition, etc.
What is the look of the lips right after Lip Blush procedure?
Your lips will look swollen and slightly larger than normal (like lip fillers).Its very individual and sometimes lips not getting swollen at all. The pigment and lip color will look darker (brighter) initially, like a lipstick. The size of your lips will get back to normal approximately in 2-4 hours after procedure and the color will fade up to 50% within the first 4-6 days. Right after the procedure lips normally feel dry and tender to the touch. You will have to apply special ointment (Lip Balm etc.,for extra lip moisturizing).

Outer healing process will take 4-6 days. Lip pigment color may fade up to 50% after the first few days. While healing you lip color will look spotty, because your lip skin will peel off, and in couple next days color will be more even. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the regeneration of the skin.

Does Lips tattoo hurt?
Of all permanent makeup procedures, the permanent lip enhancement procedure is the most sensitive. However we do numb your lips prior to and throughout the procedure with a highly effective topical anesthetic for your comfort.
Pre-Care Instructions are designed and MUST BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessing bleeding and sensitivity during the procedure will dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results.
* Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.

. It is crucial these instructions are followed to ensure a comfortable healing process and to achieve the best possible results for your look.
If I have had a lip filler injection already, am I still a candidate for Lip tattoo?
A minimum of 6 months post-filler is required before your Aquarelle Lip appointment. It is recommended that you have the permanent lip enhancement first and then the lip filler injections once lips are healed.
What color will be lips be?
You and your artist will discuss which colors suit you based on your natural lip color. Once your lips have healed, you may still enhance or change the color of your lips at any time with conventional makeup. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all.
How will my lips look immediately after?
Your lips will look swollen and slightly larger than normal and look as though you may have had slight lip filler injections. The degree of this varies from person to person. The pigment and lip color will look darker initially, as a bold lipstick. The size of your lips will shrink back to normal and the color will significantly fade up to 50% within the first 4 days. You will lose color on the inside of your lips first, the edges last. Right after the procedure lips normally feel dry, chapped, tight, and tender to the touch. Similar to how a sunburn feels.
How long is the healing process?
Expect moderate swelling up to three days following the procedure. Scabbing may make the lips feel thick. Lip pigment color may fade up to 50% after the first few days. While healing your lip color will look spotty. This is due to the oxidation of the pigment and the regeneration of the skin. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired lip results. Your Complimentary Enhancement Session must be scheduled 6-12 weeks after your first initial appointment and is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color, achieve symmetry and density in the shape.
How long does Lip tattoo last?
The pigment will remain in your skin forever but will fade over time. We recommend getting a touch-up every 1-3 years.
Please note that final results cannot be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. We will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your Enhancement Session and make any changes. Two appointments are recommended initially. Each of these appointments being 5-10 weeks apart. At your Complimentary Enhancement Session, we will assess the color retention and make any adjustments necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always make necessary adjustments when you return!
How often is a touch-up needed?
Lip color requires frequent touch-ups compared to other permanent makeup procedures due to the fact that the lips are very vascular and the body metabolizes the lip color at a rapid rate compared to other body parts which are not as vascularized. We recommend touch-ups every 1-3 years.
What factors will affect how my Lips tattoo looks?
Excessive bleeding during a lip tattoo procedure will reduce the amount of pigment absorption. Caffeine, alcohol, certain food or drink, and certain medications or vitamins may act as stimulants and/or blood thinners. They should be avoided for a minimum of 48 hours prior to your appointment.
Sun exposure: The sun will extremely soften the look of your lip tattoo, and may also change the color appearance of the pigment.
Lifestyle: smokers, "sun worshippers", or anyone with skin that is in a state of distress may have less desirable results.
