Lip Blushing Cosmetic Tattoo FAQ: Procedure, Aftercare, and Pre-Procedure Tips

Lip blushing cosmetic tattoo / PMU is gaining popularity as a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that enhances the natural color and shape of lips for both women and men.

If you're considering a lip blushing cosmetic tattoo treatment, the Evoluer Microblading and PMU owner has compiled a FAQ guide to provide you with essential information about the procedure, aftercare tips, and pre-procedure advice.

1. What is lip blushing cosmetic tattoo / PMU ?

Lip blushing tattoo is a technique that involves depositing pigments into the upper layers of the lips, resulting in a soft, natural-looking tint. It can help define the lip border, improve symmetry, and give the illusion of fuller lips.

2. How is the lip blushing cosmetic tattoo procedure performed?

During the procedure, a licensed tattoo artist or permanent makeup specialist will numb the lips and use a small handheld device to insert pigments into the lips. They carefully layer the pigments to achieve the desired color and shape. The process generally takes around 1-2 hours.

3. Does the lip blushing cosmetic tattoo procedure hurt?

Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. While some clients may experience slight sensitivity or discomfort during the treatment, it is generally well-tolerated.

4. What should I do before getting a lip blushing cosmetic tattoo?

  • Consultation: Schedule a consultation with one of évoluer microblading and PMU's premier artists to discuss your goals and any concerns you may have.

  • Research: Is important, please feel free to compare our galleries of worth with other experienced professionals who have a portfolios of successful lip blushing treatments to compare. You should feel confident in the artist you're choosing for your procedure.

  • Avoid blood-thinning substances: Refrain from consuming alcohol, caffeine, and blood-thinning medications for at least 24 hours before the procedure.

5. How should I care for my lips after the lip blushing tattoo cosmetic procedure?

  • Keep the area clean: Gently clean your lips with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser and water. Pat dry with a clean towel.

  • Apply ointment: Apply a thin layer of recommended ointment or healing balm to keep the lips moisturized.

  • Avoid certain activities: Avoid hot liquids, spicy foods, swimming pools, saunas, and direct sunlight for at least a week.

  • Don't pick or peel: Allow the scabs to naturally fall off. Picking or peeling can lead to pigment loss or scarring.

6. How long does the lip blushing cosmetic tattoo last?

The longevity of lip blushing tattoos varies from person to person. Typically, it lasts between 1-3 years, depending on factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain the desired color and shape.

7. Are there any risks or side effects to lip blushing cosmetic tattoo?

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks. These may include minor swelling, redness, bruising, or temporary darkening of the lips. However, choosing an experienced professional and following proper aftercare instructions can minimize these risks.


Lip blushing tattoo can be a great option for those looking to enhance their lips' natural color and shape. By understanding the procedure, following aftercare instructions, and preparing adequately, you can achieve beautiful, long-lasting results.
