Lip tattooing creates a perfect shape, restores lost color, is smudge proof, and is a great alternative to lip fillers. A lighter lip tattoo, known as lip blush, gives a lip stain effect looking fresh and vibrant right out of the shower. A lip tattoo does not replace wearing lipstick for a special occasion or a night out. Regular lipstick can be worn over it. A permanent lip tattoo requires 2 applications four weeks apart and lasts up to 3 years.
