Lip blushing is a type of semipermanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using small needles, this procedure is sometimes called lip tattooing, but this is more of a cosmetic enhancement rather than traditional tattoo art. Some aesthetic technicians claim that lip blushing focuses on altering both the colour and shape to create younger looking lips. However Micropigmentation enhances colour, not fullness, just like lipstick. The procedure can give you full lips, but only during the healing stages, that's when the lips have swelled up 2x their original size.

What you need to know before getting the lip blushing treatment is that, the procedure is not permanent, you will need future touch ups since Micropigmentation uses pigment, not traditional tattoo ink, therefore the pigment fades over time. Lip blushing is an uncomfortable procedure because lips are sensitive and the needles used are sharp, it is reasonable to expect some level of discomfort when you are having your lips blushed. You can have a numbing agent applied to help minimize the pain, however, your lips will not be camera ready for another 15 days after the procedure. During the first four days, expect swelling and dryness, therefore before you start with the lip blushing process, you should plan your public outings accordingly.

There are many aspects of the procedure to consider, including: your pain tolerance, your budget and the minor side effects you should expect, though they’ll decrease as your lips heal, those include: swelling, redness and pain. Without proper aftercare and healing, your lips may become infected, this is when you will experience excessive swelling, worsening pain, pus oozing from your lips and a severe infection may also cause a fever and chills.
