Lip Color Tattooing

Lip Color tattooing is a rising trend that is gaining popularity. This procedure is an excellent solution for individuals with discolored lips or those with undefined lip borders. I strive to achieve the most natural look possible rather than just lining the lips. With this service, I can correct asymmetry and enhance the overall shape of the lips.

The Lip Color tattoo features defined edges that fade softly towards the center of the mouth, creating the illusion of fuller lips without the need for injections. Whether you prefer bold or nude colors or need assistance with correcting scars/discoloration, this service can cater to your needs. It's also safe to use on lips that have undergone injections, with the two procedures working in tandem to achieve the desired fullness. This service is particularly useful in reinstating lip color that may be lost due to lip injections.

Please note that all my services require two sessions, spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart, and sessions are priced separatly. The final results may vary, and we cannot guarantee the outcome. Additional sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results, and extra charges may apply.

It's crucial to acknowledge that this service does not provide a no-maintenance solution. In order to maintain optimal lip appearance, a "Color Refresh" procedure is recommended every 2-5 years, contingent upon a range of lifestyle and skin factors. This will incur a separate charge listed below.

Furthermore, Lip Color tattoos can be used to neutralize dark, purple, or undesirable color tones in the lips.

Note that if you've ever had a cold sore, you must obtain a Valtrex prescription, as prescribed by your doctor, before undergoing lip tattooing.


Lip Blush (3hrs.) -  $440

6-8 Week Lip Touchup (2hrs.) - $140

Long Term Maintenance every 1-5 years Lip Color Refresh  (2hrs.) - $180

All pricing includes extra premium aftercare products: GST is additional.

My Client's Healed Results

The primary concern regarding lip tattooing that I often hear is that the finished look can appear too bold or unnatural. However, this is a temporary effect that only lasts for around five days. Once the lips have healed, the outcome is incredibly natural-looking, which excites me. Lip tattooing is a game-changer as it enhances natural lips, making them look better while still appearing like your lips. The subtle transformation is hard to pinpoint, but it will positively alter your overall appearance.
While I enjoy sharing photos of freshly done lip tattoos as they look impressive, it's essential to keep in mind that the ultimate outcome is after the healing process. In this context, I have incorporated some images below to showcase how the healed lips appear in comparison to the freshly done ones.

The Lip Tattooing Process

The lip color procedure commences with a pre-drawing phase, where I utilize makeup to create a perfectly symmetrical shape within your lips. This process involves correcting natural asymmetry and restoring lost edge volume, creating edge definition, and enhancing the overall color tone. This meticulous step takes up to an hour or more to ensure the perfect shape is achieved and that you are completely satisfied with the results. Once we have chosen the ideal color tone from an array of possibilities, I begin the tattooing process by outlining the lips, which takes approximately 5-10 minutes. I then proceed to numb your lips to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. The more relaxed you are, the better the results. In fact, some of my clients have even fallen asleep during the process. The remainder of the appointment involves filling the lips with color, which is tailored to your specific goals. Please note that some swelling is normal and temporary, but should dissipate within two days following the procedure. See the accompanying photo for a step-by-step visual guide to the entire process.

The Healing

To be candid, there may be a few days during the healing process where the results may not be aesthetically pleasing, but this is a normal occurrence in the tattoo healing process. In the first two days, swelling and brightness are common, while days 3-5 are typically characterized by chapped and sunburnt lips. However, the lip balm provided in your aftercare kit will be your trusted companion during this time. As the healing process continues over the next four weeks, more color will return, and the lightest point will be after the flakes have disappeared.
To address any imperfections or add more color, a touch-up session will be scheduled six to eight weeks after the initial appointment. The following is a general overview of what to expect during the healing process of a lip tattoo.
