Lip Blush is a form of Semi-Permanent makeup for lips.  It will boost your natural lip color, create volume and fullness for your lips. 

Also, it will help to correct asymmetry or darkness of your lips.  Unlike lip tattoos, Lip-Blush technique applies small dots of pigment in the lips using a needle.  A tattoo on your lips sounds pretty painful, and it varies depending on your pain tolerance, however, the average pain level is between 0-3 with 10 being the most painful.

Lip blushing will last 2-3 years, but depending on your lifestyle, the retention may vary.

For Lip Blush, you can choose the colour you want, however, touch-up is necessary to achieve the target colour. 

Please note, we do not offer Brown lip colour because the colour will become unpleasant overtime.

2-3 years. You have the option to maintain your tattoo with touch up appointments or you can let your tattoo naturally fade away over time. It happens slowly and softly – you won’t notice the colour fading on a day to day basis, but when you look back on pictures of the fresh tattoo you will notice the fading. Read about how to care for your tattoo under the “Pre+Post Care” tab.
Start to finish the appointment typically takes 2.5 to 3 hours. This includes our consultation, photos (optional), colour selection, pre-draw, numbing, tattoo process and aftercare preparation. I have music playing in the studio, but if you’d like to bring headphones for music or a podcast you can do so.
Your lips will be numbed with a topical anesthetic prior to tattooing. It is not painful, just a bit uncomfortable and lips can become sensitive by the end of appointment. If you are worried about pain, you can take 1-2 Tylenol 30 minutes prior to appointment. Do NOT take Advil as it is a blood thinner and will make you more sensitive, same goes for caffeine and alcohol!
Every client is different, but if you follow the proper aftercare it is a very simple and quick healing process. Usually it takes about 4-5 days for the top layer of the lips to heal. It will first just appear as you are wearing lipstick and then they become quite dry. They will feel normal again after a few days, however the full colour will not show until all layers of the lip have healed (6 weeks). If you are a dark lip neutralization it is possible for the lips to appear patchy, uneven or dark during these 6 weeks – so after 7 days of healing you are able to wear lipstick over the tattoo if desired.
If you have a favourite lipstick you can bring it in with you. I also recommend finding photos on my Instagram or a bring in a celebrities photo for inspiration. I will work with you to colour match, and I can also create a custom colour for you based on your skin tone and features to compliment you best
Yes! Lip blush tattoo and lip filler compliment each other very well. Just make sure these appointments are always at least 4 weeks apart from each other to allow proper setting and healing. If you don’t have either and are unsure of which one to book first, I always recommend booking Lip Blush (waiting 4 weeks) then get your lip filler (wait another 4 weeks) and then coming back for your complementary Lip Blush 6-8 week touch up.
Some clients prefer their tattoo to look fresh and defined so will book annual touch ups and other clients like to wait 1-3 years. If you came for your both initial and complementary 6-8 week touch up appointment and still would like more colour, you will need to book an additional touch up.
I do not tattoo over other artists work. If you have a tattoo from another artist, please contact me with photos of your lips and I will see what I can do (rare cases I may take the client). If you do not inform me about your previously tattooed lips and come to your appointment, I will have to cancel your appointment and your deposit will be forfeited.
Yes, but only by 2mm. Once we reach hair follicles or are no longer on the lip skin, I can not tattoo as it will heal a different colour and look unnatural.
Yes, it can trigger cold sores for those who carry the herpes simplex virus. If you are prone to cold sores please visit your doctor and get an antiviral medication and take it as followed. If you have never had a cold sore outbreak before, it is possible you are still a carrier and can have a outbreak. If this happens contact BROWLAB and start applying Abreva immediately as directed. Cold sore outbreaks can alter the results of a healed tattoo so it is important to prevent them or treat them right away.
