Permanent Lip Color

Permanent lip color, also known as permanent lip blushing, permanent lipstick, lip tint, or lip tattooing, is a cosmetic technique that enhances the natural contour of the lips, giving them a boost of color and the illusion of fullness. This age-old practice, which has roots in ancient cultures, has been refined over centuries, evolving with technological advancements to offer a range of techniques including lip lining tattoo, permanent lipstick, and permanent lip tint.


From the delicate art of lip blushing, which imparts a soft, natural hue, to the more defined look of tattooed lipstick, the methods employed aim to redefine the lips in a manner that complements each individual's unique facial features. Utilizing specialized pigments designed for the delicate lip tissue, modern techniques employ precise digital tools to implant color with minimal trauma, ensuring a smoother healing process.


Today's permanent lip color treatments provide a smudge-proof, long-lasting alternative to conventional makeup, embodying the fusion of beauty, science, and artistry. As the leading 5 star Permanent Makeup salon in the Bellevue / Kirkland area we embrace these advancements.  Whether seeking to correct asymmetries, enhance natural color, or simply save time on daily makeup routines, permanent lip color offers a tailored solution to meet a wide array of aesthetic desires.


Full Cover Lip Color Tattoo

The "Full Cover" lip color procedure, also known as full lip tint or full lip tattoo, is a cosmetic treatment that involves applying permanent pigment across the entire lip area to enhance and define the lips’ natural color. It’s a popular solution for those who desire a lasting alternative to daily lipstick application, wish to correct uneven lip tones, or want to restore color to lips that have lost pigmentation.

Lip Feathered Contour Outline Tattoo

The "Feathered Contour" technique for lip coloring is a method used in semi-permanent makeup to create a natural and soft outline on the lips, offering a more diffused look than the traditional solid lip liner. This technique focuses on subtly enhancing the lip borders and adding a gradient effect / shadow, which gives the illusion of volume, fullness, and dimension without the harsh lines.

Are Lip Tattoos Permanent?

Typically, lip tattoos may last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, sometimes longer, before requiring a touch-up to maintain their color and shape. The longevity of a lip tattoo will vary based on factors such as the individual's skin type, lifestyle, and how well the aftercare instructions are followed. It's also worth noting that certain colors may fade more quickly than others.

Are Lip Tattoos Painful?

To manage discomfort, most cosmetic tattoo artists will apply a strong topical anesthetic to the lips before and sometimes during the procedure. This numbing agent can significantly reduce the sensation, though some people may still feel a vibrating or buzzing feeling, or a sense of discomfort rather than sharp pain.
