Pros

  • Having beautiful lips give confidence and a better self-image.
  • There are a wide array of colors to choose from, which allows the client to choose the shade that would look good on her and compliment the rest of her facial features.

Cosmetic Tattoo - Lips

There are several factors to consider when deciding which cosmetic design to choose from:

  • First is to contemplate and imagine how you'd like your lips to turn out after the treatment. This includes deciding on the color and shape of lips you would like to achieve.
  • Another factor that can affect your choice is the presence of certain lip imperfections which need hiding.
  • The cost of each design. While you want to achieve perfect pouting lips, you also need to keep your budget in check.

 

Before the actual appointment, the patient needs to consult with a skilled tattooist regarding the design, risks, and cost of the procedure. Reminders are also given during this time regarding the dos and don'ts before and during treatment.

The process itself takes only about 1-3 hours. It starts with the administration of a local numbing agent on your lips so that pain and discomfort are minimized.

While waiting for the anesthesia to take effect, the tattooist will briefly go over the design you chose, the desired color and shape, and the documents which need your approval,

The pigment is then administered to the lips using small, fine needles and repeated in layers to create a more even tone.

Discomfort varies among individuals since we all have our pain threshold.

After the treatment, the lips might be swollen and may take a few weeks to resolve,

A follow-up consultation is recommended after 8 weeks, to allow enough time for the colors to fully develop.

  • Coffee or any caffeinated drink intake is also not allowed since caffeine is a blood thinner and increases the chances of bleeding during and after the treatment.
  • Fish oil, herbal teas, and garlic consumption are also restricted before the procedure, as well as intake of some blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen.

  • Flaking lips can be managed by applying petroleum jelly.
  • Strenuous activities are discouraged during the recovery phase.
  • Exposure to sunlight is also discouraged during this period.
  • The final results are evident after a month when your lips have stopped scaling. This is also a good time to have a follow-up consultation with your professional tattooist, to assess the results and schedule a touch-up if necessary.

Risks & side effects

Like any other treatment, a cosmetic tattoo on the lips carries with it a few risks. Given its growing popularity, it is important to understand these risks and how they can be avoided.

  • Swelling and Inflammation. The needles used during therapy cause small injuries on the lips, and inflammation is a direct response of the body to an injury. This should however resolve in a few days as the lips start to heal. Ice packs and pain relief medication like acetaminophen can help  alleviate the pain.
  • Infection. Because the needles used during the procedure create tiny injuries on the surface of the lips, it's important to ensure that these needles and other medical supplies used doing the procedure are properly sterilized. Keeping the mouth and surrounding areas clean also lessens the possibility of infection.
  • Scarring. An ineffective healing process may cause the lips to scar. Infection and any allergic reaction may also cause post-treatment injury and further scarring on the treatment site.
  • Allergic reactions. There are times when a patient gets an allergic reaction to the pigment or ink used during the treatment. This is why it is vital to discuss your medical history along with any allergies with the tattooist before the procedure. Mild allergies may cause redness, rashes, itching, and hives.
  • Anaphylactic Shock. This is a severe case of allergic reaction that can cause serious symptoms such as difficulty in breathing. This is a life-threatening situation and requires emergency medical attention.
