Lip Blush Tattoo for Dark Lip Neutralization


Lip Blush Tattoo for Lip Neutralization

Your lips are a unique canvas, each with their natural beauty and charm. Lip blush for dark lip neutralization will allow you to have a touch of red or pink to your naturally dark or cool-toned lips, without applying lip stick! Melanin-rich lips often feature deep shades like black, brown, and hints of purple, creating a subdued effect. If you find yourself frequently reaching for pinks, reds, or oranges to warm up your lip color and desire a simplified beauty routine, then lip neutralization might be the solution you’ve been searching for.

What Exactly is Lip Neutralization?

Lip neutralization is a cosmetic tattoo procedure that focuses on color correction and enhancement of the skin. It’s a technique best performed by a skilled cosmetic tattoo artist. Using natural inks, this procedure involves tattooing the desired color onto the deeper layers of the dermal tissue, ensuring long-lasting coverage for approximately 2-5 years.

When working with individuals with naturally dark lips, the artist carefully selects a suitable color to neutralize and enhance the lip’s appearance, resulting in a brighter and more balanced look.

What to Expect During the Process

Session 1: The initial phase of the neutralization process involves a comprehensive assessment of your lip undertones. The artist selects a color from the opposite side of the color wheel to correct your current lip shade. During this session, the primary goal is to lighten and brighten the lips. This requires a significant saturation of tattoo ink to ensure effective brightening. For instance, if your lips have a purple hue, the artist may use a yellow-orange color to counteract it. Initially, the ink in the cap may appear golden, but once applied to the lip tissue, it will take on an orange-pink tone. As the healing process progresses, the orange hue will fade, leaving behind a warm pink color, effectively eliminating the original purple or brown undertones. Keep in mind that your first appointment is just the initial step, with further adjustments planned in subsequent sessions.

Session 2: The second session marks the next step in the process, and it may be another neutralization session or, based on the healed results from Session 1, a colorizing session to achieve a darker pink or red hue for your lips. Typically, during this appointment, additional shades of pink and red can be applied once the base layer has been effectively brightened and lightened. The number of sessions required may vary depending on your natural lip color or skin tone. Due to the dark undertones of the lips, annual touch-up appointments may be necessary to maintain the desired color.

Note: Some people do best with a third session. Your experienced artist will be able to let you know, during your initial appointment if a third will be needed. This third appointment will probably cost a bit extra, but it will be worth it.

The Healing Process

Following your appointment, your lips will initially appear with a vibrant neon orange or coral tone. This intense colorization is temporary and will fade within a day or two. Subsequently, your lips will darken in shade. By the third day, you may experience chapped lips that will start peeling, a process lasting around two days. This reveals a soft, natural pink shade around day seven. It typically takes four to six weeks for the color to fully heal and reach a balanced state.

Following all after care guidelines provided by your artist is very important!

To ensure optimal results, your second session will be scheduled for six to eight weeks later, allowing the color processing to complete and the lip tissue to heal before proceeding with further adjustments.
