Lip Blush and Ombre cosmetic tattoo treatments in Brisbane

The lip blush tattoo technique involves depositing small amounts of pigment into the upper layers of the skin, giving the lips a tinted, flushed look that can last for several years. Unlike traditional lipstick or lip stain, lip blush tattoo is a semi-permanent solution that can save time and money on daily lip makeup applications. The procedure can also help correct asymmetry, redefine the lip border, and restore colour to faded or pale lips.

The initial results are fairly bright and do not appear entirely natural, however, this is deliberate to counter the initial fading that occurs over the following weeks, which then results in a long-lasting natural lip colour.

Frequently asked questions

How long does lip blush tattoo last?

The duration of a lip blush tattoo can vary depending on factors such as the individual's skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare routine. Generally, lip blush tattoos can last between 1-3 years, but some people may see the pigment fade sooner or last longer. This semi-permanent makeup technique fades gradually over time as the body's natural exfoliation process removes the pigment from the skin. Exposure to sunlight, certain skincare products, and smoking can also cause the pigment to fade more quickly. To maintain the best possible results, it is recommended to schedule touch-up sessions every 1-2 years or as needed to refresh the colour and shape of the lips.

What is lip blush ombre?

Lip blush ombre is a technique used in lip tattooing that combines two different shades of pigment to create a gradient effect on the lips. The technique involves depositing a lighter shade of pigment in the center of the lips and gradually blending it into a darker shade towards the outer edges of the lips.

This creates a natural-looking ombre effect that adds dimension and depth to the lips.The purpose of lip blush ombre is to enhance the natural shape and fullness of the lips while providing a long-lasting, natural-looking lip color. The lighter shade in the center of the lips can give the illusion of fuller lips, while the darker shade on the outer edges can create a subtle contouring effect that defines the lip line.

Lip blush ombre is a popular choice for those who want to achieve a natural-looking, yet noticeable enhancement to their lips. The technique can be customised to suit different skin tones and preferences, and can last for up to two years with proper aftercare.

does lip blush tattoo hurt?

Lip blush tattooing can cause some discomfort, but the level of pain can vary depending on an individual's pain threshold. The procedure involves using a needle to deposit pigment into the skin, which can create a sensation similar to a continuous pinching or pricking feeling. To minimize pain and discomfort, numbing creams or local anaesthesia may be applied to the lips before the procedure. It is important to note that some people may experience swelling, redness, or tenderness in the treated area for a few days following the procedure, but these symptoms typically subside within a week or two. It is recommended to follow the aftercare instructions provided to ensure proper healing and to minimise discomfort.

Are Lip Blush tattoos worth it?

The decision to get a lip blush tattoo is a personal one, and whether it's worth it depends on your individual preferences and goals. The benefits of lip blush tattoos include saving time on daily makeup application, achieving a long-lasting colour, and enhancing the shape and volume of the lips. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and drawbacks to consider. You should always book in a free consultation with our tattoo artists to discuss your expectations, the procedure, and the aftercare process. Ultimately, whether a lip blush tattoo is worth it for you depends on your personal preferences and willingness to accept the potential risks and drawbacks.

Can men get lip blush?

Yes, definitely. If you have naturally pale or faded lips, or to fix pigmentation issues then we can customise this to create natural subtle results.

Is Lip Blush Tattoo permanent?

Lip blush tattooing is a form of semi-permanent makeup. This means that while the pigment is designed to last for a long time, it is not permanent and will eventually fade over time. The duration of the lip blush tattoo's pigmentation can vary from person to person, depending on factors such as the individual's skin type, the quality of the pigment used, and your lifestyle habits.

Generally, the pigmentation can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years, after which a touch-up session may be required to maintain the colour and shape. It's important to keep in mind that while the lip blush tattoo may be long-lasting, it is not completely permanent and can eventually fade or change in colour over time.

The fading process may be accelerated by factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and exfoliating the lips too frequently. It's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by our therapists to ensure the best possible results and a longer-lasting pigmentation.

how does lip blush tattoo work?

Lip blush tattooing is a cosmetic procedure that involves depositing pigment into the lips to create a natural-looking flush of colour. The procedure is performed using a small tattoo machine that is specifically designed for cosmetic tattooing. Here's how it typically works:

Consultation: The first step is to schedule a free consultation with us. During this consultation, you can discuss your goals and expectations for the lip blush tattoo, as well as any concerns or questions you may have. The artist may also examine your lips to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

Colour Selection: Once you have decided to proceed with the lip blush tattoo, our therapists will work with you to select a suitable colour that complements your skin tone and achieves the desired look.

Preparation: The therapist will clean and prep your lips by applying a numbing cream to minimise discomfort during the procedure.

Tattooing: Using a small tattoo machine and a single-use, disposable needle, our therapists will deposit the pigment into the lips in a series of small, controlled strokes. The technique used is designed to mimic the natural shape and texture of the lips, resulting in a natural-looking flush of color.

Aftercare: After the procedure is complete, the artist will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and longer-lasting pigmentation. This typically includes avoiding certain activities, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, for a few days, and applying a healing balm to the lips as needed.

The final result of the lip blush tattoo may not be immediately apparent, as the pigmentation can take several days to fully develop. Over time, the colour may fade or change, and a touch-up session may be required to maintain the desired look.

Can you go over previous lip tattoo treatments?

In general, it is possible to perform lip blush tattooing over previous lip tattoos, but it depends on several factors.

First, it's important to consider the age and quality of the previous tattoo. If the previous tattoo is faded, distorted, or uneven, it may not be possible to achieve a smooth and even pigmentation with lip blush tattooing. In some cases, the previous tattoo may need to be removed or corrected before a new lip blush tattoo can be applied.

Another factor to consider is the colour and location of the previous tattoo. If the previous tattoo is located in a similar area to where the lip blush tattoo is to be applied, it may affect the final colour and appearance of the lip blush tattoo. In some cases, the previous tattoo may need to be covered or corrected before the lip blush tattoo can be applied.

It's important to discuss any previous lip tattoos with the therapist during the consultation phase. They can examine the previous tattoo and determine if lip blush tattooing is a suitable option for you, or if any additional steps need to be taken to achieve the desired results. Ultimately, the success of lip blush tattooing over a previous tattoo will depend on the individual circumstances, so please come in for a free consultation.

treatment recommendations

Lip blush tattoo preparation + aftercare

  • Consultation - Please schedule a consultation to discuss goals and expections. This is a good opportunity to discuss any concerns, such as allergies or medical conditions that could affect the procedure.

  • Avoid aspirin or blood thinners, as these can increase the risk of bleeding during the treatment. Please inform us of any medications before the procedure.

  • Stay hydrated. Keeping your body hydrated can help to minimise swelling and promote healing after the procedure. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to the treatment.

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Alcohol and caffeine can increase the risk of bleeding and affect the healing process. It's best to avoid these substances for at least 24 hours before the procedure.

  • Arrive with clean lips: Make sure your lips are clean and free of any makeup, moisturisers, or other products on the day of the procedure.

  • Avoid anti-wrinkle injections, fillers, laser treatments, chemical peels and strong sun exposure for 1 month prior to your treatment

  • Keep the area clean: For the first few days after the procedure, gently clean the treated area with a mild, unscented soap and water. Use a clean, soft cloth or cotton pad to pat the area dry.

  • Apply a healing ointment: After cleaning the area, apply a thin layer of our recommended healing balm to help soothe and protect the skin. Use only products that are recommended.

  • Avoid certain activities: For at least the first week after the procedure, avoid activities that could irritate the treated area, such as swimming, hot tubs, saunas, and sun exposure. Avoid kissing, touching, or picking at the treated area.

  • Don't wear lipstick or lip balm: Avoid wearing any products on your lips (unless it's a healing balm) for at least the first week after the procedure, as they can interfere with the healing process.

  • Be patient: It's normal for the treated area to appear darker and more intense for the first few days after the procedure. Over the next few weeks, the colour will gradually fade to a more natural-looking shade.

  • Attend any follow-up appointments: If required, we may schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the healing process and make any necessary touch-ups or adjustments.

  • To prevent excessive skin turnover and fading try to avoid applying AHA’s and active skincare ingredients directly to the area. To keep your brows looking fresh we advise a touch-up every 1-2 years
