KISS ME LIP-TINT TATTOO
A favorite for women who are not after the dramatic affect of lip injections, or commonly known as "duck lips". AJEC Lip Tint Tattoo is a subtle approach to a fuller lip using naturally toned pigments to blend and shade within or outside the natural lip line. Tailored to your dream lip shade and opt for either rich definition or subtle shading. Imagine only having to apply a clear gloss or lip balm for added sheen over symmetrical and kissable "luscious lips". Mwaaa.
7-10 days prior to having your Kiss me Lip Tint Tattoo appointment we recommend taking either lysine or a cold sore preventative vitamin as this will minimise any post-treatment cold sores appearing as a result of the lips healing. On the day of the procedure an anaesthetic is applied to the lips before the artist begins the consult and design process. Generally a deeper colour is chosen for the outline and then a creamier, softer version as it flows into the centre. Then almost no colour in the very centre. This gives the illusion of a ‘pout’ although it is important to note that you can never make the colour tone of your lip lighter.
As the tattoo is healing the pigment will deepen in colour so it is best to plan your tattoo around any sort of important events i.e weddings, birthday parties or important business meetings. If you are unsure please check with your consultant before booking in.
Please allow 24 hours for the lips to begin to peel. The pigment in most dramatic 24-48 hours after the initial treatment, then the outer layer of dry skin will begin to peel. Lip tint Tattoo after care is minimal. This includes refraining from touching the area with fingertips and applying a nourishing antiseptic cream twice a day. It is also important to avoid any exfoliants, oils, lipsticks and spicy foods for one week. A retouch appointment is recommended within 6-8 weeks as this ensures the artist is able to correct any fading inconsistencies and so the lip line looks "crisp". This is also an opportunity to make any minor colour changes. After both sessions you should expect your lips to fade anywhere from 25-50% and peeling to occur over 3-7 days depending on your skin type.
The Kiss me lip-tint tattoo generally lasts anywhere between 3-10 years however this depends on your skin’s chemistry, active ingredients in your skincare and exposure to the elements. It is not recommended to have the procedure done with existing remnants of lip fillers or injections, as this will alter the result once the fillers wear off. Allow 7 days before applying any makeup products to areas treated by cosmetic tattoo.
