If you have a booked appointment and it becomes necessary to take antibiotics, please call us and reschedule using this time frame guideline!

1-3 Days Before Your Lip Blush Tattoo Procedure:

  • Refrain from consuming alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment.
  • Avoid consuming caffeine on the day of the appointment.
