Manchester's most in-demand Lip Tattoo Artist

What is a lip blushing tattoo?

A lip tattoo is similar to other permanent makeup procedures in that it allows you to wake up with picture-perfect, beautifully blushed lips without applying lipstick, gloss or balm. Lip tattoos, often called lip blush, permanent lips or lipstick tattoo is a procedure that enhances the lip colour by depositing pigment into the lips with a tiny microneedle and machine.

The treatment lasts around 2 to 3 years and touch-ups are required from time to time to keep them looking fresh. Each shade of lip tattoo is one of a kind for every individual client, and the shade is customised to the colour that best enhances the person’s lips and matched closely to the clients desired colour.

No matter your age, complexion or preferences, we will identify the exact shade of nude, coral, pink or red to provide lip blush that is subtle, bold, or somewhere in-between. It all depends on how you want to look.

While rare, potential risks of lip tattoos include allergic reactions, infections, and scarring. It’s essential to choose a qualified and experienced technician who follows strict hygiene and safety protocols to minimise these risks.

Yes, as soon as your lip tattoo has healed, you can continue to wear traditional lipstick if desired. In fact, one of the best things about permanent lips is that you still retain this flexibility. If you want a different colour at any time, you simply apply lipstick as normal.

Following proper aftercare instructions and scheduling periodic touch-up sessions as recommended by your technician are essential for maintaining the longevity and appearance of your lip tattoo.

Top-up sessions are typically scheduled 8 to 12 weeks after the initial procedure to address any areas where pigment may have faded unevenly and make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired colour and shape. These sessions help prolong the longevity of your lip tattoo.
