Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lip Blush?
Lip Blush is a semi-permanent tattoo using a single needle technique to add or correct color. Defines shape, and gives the appearance of volume to your natural lips.
How long does Lip Blush last?
Lip Blush lasts 2-3 years. Most people like to get a touch-up once a year.
Does it hurt?
Level 2 or 3 out of 10 fairly painless procedure. Topical numbing solution is used between each round of shading for added comfort. I’ve never had anyone unable to finish their lips!
Is Lip Blush okay to do if I have fillers?
Yes. This will not affect your results and they actually pair perfectly together.
Can you make my lips look bigger?
YES. By bringing color to the very edges of your lips it automatically makes them look bigger. Also, I can slightly over-line your lips for added appearance of volume.

You can eat, drink, and be merry right after your appointment. Although we do ask that you follow the simple aftercare instructions provided.
