Lip Tattooing

Cosmetic lip tattooing, also known as permanent makeup, is ideal for women wanting to enhance their lip colour or make their lips more defined, even and fuller. As we age, our lips lose their fullness and colour, becoming thinner and losing their definition. At Cosmetic Tattoo Victoria, we can overcome this with a permanent lip tattoo or semi permanent lip tattoo that works as a form of cosmetic lip enhancement.

Having your lips permanently tattooed will enhance their size and shape and make them look fuller and more attractive. A tattoo for lips also provides a more effective and longer lasting result than lip augmentation with dermal fillers. For women who do opt for injectables, getting lip tattooing done first creates a beautiful contour and gives the injector guidelines to work with. Consult with Cosmetic Tattoo Victoria today to find out how we can help you.

Lip Tattooing Pre Procedure Advice

Before undergoing cosmetic lip tattooing, please heed the following advice:

  • Do not take Aspirin or Ibuprofen for 2 days before or after the tattoo lips permanent makeup procedure.
  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting with your doctor.
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before a permanent or semi permanent lip tattoo treatment.
  • If you suffer from any allergies, advise your therapist. Some clients can be allergic to the pigment that is placed in their skin and a patch test will be required.

After Care Information for Lip Tattooing

Here’s what you can expect after getting a tattoo for lips:

  • Immediately after the treatment, your lips will be slightly swollen and tender. The colour will appear much darker than the one you chose during the consultation.
  • Full lip treatments take longer to heal with more soreness, swelling and tightness.
  • If you have ever had a cold sore, even only one in your life, you will more than likely breakout. Lysine tablets 3-5 days prior and after treatment are recommended. Zovirax cream can also be used.
  • Please do not be worried if you lose colour after getting tattoo lips permanent makeup, as you can lose up to 60% the first time.
