COSMETIC TATTOO – LIP

Lip tattooing is becoming a popular treatment and growing fast.

Our signature lip tattooing techniques create a natural result and are 100% customised to each individual at their appointment. 

The benefits of lip tattooing are countless; 

  • Restore colour to the lips or match your favourite lip colour
  • Re-define your lip border if you have experienced loss of lip definition due to lip fillers, ageing, smoking or scarring 
  • Rejuvenate the face with a subtle pop of colour

LIP LINE AND BLEND

The lip line and blend technique is done using a tattoo machine similar to what is used during regular tattooing. Your Cosmetic Tattooist will enhance your lip line and then blend the colour inward onto the lip. This enables a flawless transition of colour from your lip line inwards to make your luscious lips POP! This technique is perfect for those who don’t have a very defined lip line, if you struggle to determine the lines in which to apply lipstick or you would like the outline of your lips to be more pronounced.

FULL LIP

During this process, the entire lip area will be filled in with the chosen pigment using a tattoo machine. The Full Lip technique is perfect for clients wanting to add one block colour over the lip. This tattoo option is ideal for clients who have lost the natural colour in their lips or enjoy wearing a lip colour daily to brighten up their face.

LIP BLUSHING

This option is perfect for those that want a subtle colour change over the entire lip area. Think of this technique as a mist of sheer colour, creating a rejuvenated and natural lip look.

We use high quality medical grade topical anaesthetics to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Everyone has a different pain threshold; therefore, some people may experience a little more discomfort than others. We do everything within our power to ensure you are kept as comfortable as possible.

No waxing/plucking is allowed on the day of your procedure. As a part of your Cosmetic Tattoo journey, we look after all of your waxing needs.

Nothing! We move your eyebrow hair throughout the procedure when implanting the pigment into the skin.

For clients that have little to no natural hair, our advanced artists are highly skilled to perform procedures with or without hair present in the eyebrow area.

Two treatments are usually needed, 4 weeks apart. With most procedures, the colour fades 30-50% initially. For the second treatment, our Cosmetic Tattooist gauges the colour retention and how you are feeling with the colour before making any adjustments.

The microblading technique is the process of placing tiny hair-like strokes of colour into the skin using a hand tool. Powder brow technique is the process of implanting pigment into the skin with a machine, similar to a normal tattoo machine with a needle.

Cosmetic Tattooing generally lasts 1-2 years however each skin type will hold the pigment differently.

Ensure you use SPF daily and avoid your tattoo area where possible with facial peels, Vit A and sun exposure.

The pigment used is based on Iron Oxide, a safe non-reactive substance and are also vegan and cruelty free. We use pigment from a reputable manufacturer in the USA that are all tested and proven for over ten years. Cosmetic Tattoo pigment colours have been created for using on the face and are pre-mixed and sterilised, they have been formulated to allow for a ‘fade factor’, this makes them different from tattoo inks used elsewhere on the body.

This is different for every client. When we pick a pigment colour for you, we take into consideration your skin type, skin undertones, products you use on the skin and your everyday environmental factors. Pigments are either a ‘warm’ or ‘cool’ base and if left to completely fade off tattoos will turn ‘warm’ (orange, red, pink) tones or ‘cool’ (grey, blue, cool brown) tones.

If you are not local that is completely fine, we can arrange a video meeting to do a consultation. We can then proceed to book your appointments well in advance so that you can plan your trips to the clinic for your appointments.

Our advanced artists are highly skilled in Cosmetic Tattooing, we pride ourselves in ‘mapping out’ the treatment area to create an individualised shape. ‘Mapping out’ means we use your facial structure and measurement tools to assist in finding a shape that is perfectly suited to YOU. By using our mapping technique and drawing on your personalised shape we can provide you with a visual guide. This guide allows us to show you different shapes and thicknesses prior to your tattooing.

For various reasons, we do not allow eyelash extensions on for your eyeliner procedures.

We maintain our legal requirements for Queensland and hold a ‘Skin Penetration Licence’. All of our Cosmetic Tattooists are trained in advanced techniques and are fully Accredited. Our clinic upholds very high standards in infection control and use the latest technology, machines and pigments. We display all of our licensing and certification in Clinic, so you are able to view this at all times.

We recommend you DO NOT exercise until your tattoo has naturally exfoliated or peeled, usually 7-10 days. As perspiration comes from inside the skin, it can also push the pigment out of the skin, this can result in the pigment not being retained and the occurrence of premature fading. 

We recommended to avoid make-up on or near the tattoo until the natural exfoliation or peeling has finished, usually 10 days.

Cancer survivors will need to wait 6 months post remission before having Cosmetic Tattooing performed, you will need to obtain medical clearance from your oncology specialist.
