Within 12 weeks of your initial session, you'll return for a gifted touch-up. During this visit, we'll evaluate your healed results + make any necessary adjustments.
We make sure to walk you through all the aftercare + answer any questions you may have.
Tattooing can take anywhere between thirty minutes to an hour+. Timing is based on end goal and your lips reaction to the service.
We'll discuss pigment selection, carefully considering your goals + your lips' natural appearance.
This step is only done if needed and is dependent on your lip anatomy. You may or may not be mapped during your session.
Let's discuss your goals + go over our process! We want to make sure we're on the same page throughout the entire service + there are no surprises.
We are only allowed to tattoo within the vermillion border of the lips. This is where your lip skin meets your face skin. If we were to cross over the border into your face skin, the healed results would not remain crisp. Think: smudged lipstick, but permanent. However, pulling a lip color to the vermillion border can create the appearance of a fuller lip because a lot of the time, your lip color dissipates before it actually reaches the border.
We always want the most natural look, so we base colors off of what your natural lip colors are. The goal at the end of the session is to have enhanced/ brightened/ shifted the color to appear more noticeable and defined.
You can 100% be tattooed even if you're prone to cold sores, but it is incredibly crucial that you take a medication, like Valtrex, 5 days prior and 5 days after to ensure no outbreak occurs. A cold sore outbreak can result in uneven or minimal retention. You really want to protect your new tattoo as it heals!
Honestly, either is fine. It's just important that there is a full 6 weeks between each service. We recommend that if you get lip blushing first, please wait 6 weeks after your touch-up appointment before booking lip filler.
