One week prior to your appointment gently start exfoliating your lips every day with a washcloth, loofah, or scrub. Apply lip balm afterward. By removing dead skin cells your lips will be more prepared to accept the pigment.




Two times a day gently wash your lips and pat dry, apply ointment you were given to keep lips moisturized. Do NOT eat salty, spicy or very hot foods for the first 3 days. Your lips have open places and will be sensitive.

During the first few days, you may experience swelling, bruising, dryness, tingling and tenderness. This is a fresh tattoo on a delicate area of skin that needs time to close up and heal. During the following few days, dryness and tenderness may continue as well as some tightness. This is normal, your skin is healing.

Let lips heal naturally, DO NOT pick or peel them. Keep lips moisturized at all times to help soothe and heal. The color implanted will fade by 50-60% during the first healing process. The color may look weak or it may seem as though the ink has disappeared. Why? Lip tattoos are not as deep as a 'normal' tattoo - your new healing skin is covering the ink and when your skin and the ink start to settle (between weeks 2-4), you'll notice that your lip tattoo starts coming back. It didn't disappear in the first place; it was just harder to see through a thicker layer of healing skin. If the color is still weak/patchy at weeks 5-6, don't worry! This is a delicate tattoo to heal and is why we do 2 sessions.



 Your technician will design your lip liner and while your numbing you will choose a color. we can create a custom color or match your favorite lipstick. We allow plenty of time for numbing!! You will not feel any pain!

Your lips will look great after the first session but will look even better after the 2nd appointment. 



During your 2nd appointment, the shape and color are made darker and fine-tuned.
