Breaking down your questions about lip blushing

Are you curious about what lip blushing means and how it works? Are you an aspiring permanent makeup artist, or are you thinking about scheduling the service for your own lips?


No matter where you’re coming from, if you’re interested in the process, it’s absolutely essential that you have access to all the information you need before making a final decision. That’s why, over at Beauty Babe Club, we’re dedicated to serving as a resource for all your permanent makeup needs and curiosities.


Lip blushing, a semi-permanent makeup technique that uses a tattoo machine to color lips, enhances the color, shape, and symmetry of lips without actually changing them physically. 


Here are the answers to the top questions we get asked, all in one spot.

How long does lip blush tattoo last?

Lip blush tattoos fade naturally over time, and it takes about two to three years to fade completely. Follow-up appointments are usually required to touch up healing lips, and without this appointment, lip blushing might not even last a full year.


The ink is water based, which helps it to fade evenly and slowly, so it will look natural and not splotchy as time goes on.


Is there a downside to lip blushing?

There are side effects to lip blushing treatments, but they are similar to traditional tattoo side effects. These include swelling, redness, and tenderness or pain. Without consistent and proper aftercare, though, you might experience infection, which looks like excessive swelling and pussy scabs.


In rare cases, clients might experience rashes, scars, or an uneven color treatment.


Generally, there are few downsides besides side effects. Clients might not be satisfied with the color they chose, or they might regret receiving the treatment as a whole. If that is the case, you can take comfort in the fact that the treatment is temporary and will fade.

Is a lip blush tattoo worth it?

For the most part, yes! People are overwhelmingly happy with their results. It saves them time getting ready in the morning and they experience more confidence with fuller, more even lips.


How painful is lip blushing?

You’d be surprised how little pain comes along with lip blushing! Artists use multiple types of numbing agents to make you more comfortable, and the needles aren’t going deep enough to cause too much pain.


The healing process can be uncomfortable, but the results are well worth it.
