Lip Tattooing

Lip Line & Blend | Full Lip Blush



Your appointment will take approximately 2.5 hours and includes:

  • A consultation where the style and colour will be discussed

  • Pre-numbing

  • Before photos

  • Lip mapping (drawing on desired lip outline)

  • Tattooing with a rotary PMU machine

  • After photos

  • Aftercare Instructions

Cosmetic tattooing is a process, often requiring multiple applications of colour to achieve the desired result. Therefore a complimentary touch-up appointment, 6-12 weeks after the initial treatment, is included in the price.


  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.

  • Please do not wear any lipstick to your appointment.

  • Avoid alcohol for 24hrs before your appointment. Alcohol can thin the blood, which can cause the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/ bruise easily.

  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 72hrs before your appointment. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil tablets. Please consult your doctor if this is an issue.

  • If you have a history of cold sores, please take either Zovirax or a cold sore preventative 5-7 days prior to your appointment.

  • You may like to take an antihistamine tablet before your procedure. This can help reduce the swelling. Consult with your pharmacist or doctor first. Aciclovir 800mg 3 days prior and 3 days post procedure is an even better option, but you will need a script from your GP.

  • If considering lip fillers, it would be best to have your lips tattooed first and your fillers injected after. If you implant colour too soon you will be implanting colour above the natural line. When the lips shrink and return to normal size, the lip line will be off.


Immediately after the treatment, lips will be slightly swollen and tender. You can apply an icepack to reduce swelling and soothe the area.

Apply aftercare balm every hour or as often as possible to keep lips moist for the first 10 days. This will help with tenderness, as well as holding in the colour. If you do not apply enough balm, your lips will become tight and pigmentation will come out.

Important Reminders

  • Always apply your aftercare balm before showering to protect your lips from the water

  • Do not pick, wipe or lick lips. They will exfoliate on their own, usually after 3-4 days

  • Avoid greasy, spicy and oily foods as well as citrus fruits and juices for the first 7 days as this can change the lip colour

  • Do not use citrus/fruit based lips balms or lipstick until your lips are completely healed (approx. 4 weeks)

  • Be careful when cleaning your teeth for the first 7 days. Toothpaste can pull the pigment colour out of the lip vermilion.

  • No kissing or direct water for 3 days (drink through a straw)

  • If you have ever had a cold sore, you will more than likely break out. This is caused by stress on the lips. Please consider using cold sore creams or taking anti-viral medication to avoid this
