LIP BLUSH TATTOO
Look, feel and speak confidently with well-defined lips!
Enjoy exercise-proof, food-proof, time proof lips!
What is Lip Blush?
Lip Blush is a semi-permanent makeup application to the entire upper & lower lip adding long-term definition and colour.
The result is beautiful fuller lips that appear more youthful without the need for lip filler injections or lipstick.
Lip Blush is also commonly referred to as a Lip Cosmetic Tattoo or Lipstick Look Tattoo.
Whilst cosmetic tattoos are largely popular with busy and active women for its many benefits, Daisy Skin will always welcome and support all ages, skin tones and genders.
Please note: Daisy Skin specialises in 'Lipstick Look' Lip Blush as it has greater restorative benefits than "Aquarelle Lip Blush" (light lip stain).
#1 Benefit - Save Time
Save time and energy getting ready in the mornings, re-applying lipstick throughout the day or getting ready for an event!
Why get Lip Blush?
Lip Blush can ENHANCE the lips by making them appear fuller and more youthful. The application is ideal for these reasons:
Lips are naturally light in colour or have faded over time
Lips contain uneven skin tones
Lip border has blurred over time and blended into the skin tone of your face
Lip Blush can also RESTORE the definition and colour of lips that have scarring on the border or throughout. Daisy Skin welcome those who have lips affected from:
Accidental scarring (dog bite, car accident for example)
Surgical scarring (cleft palate, skin cancer removal, other reconstructive surgeries)
#2 Benefit - Save Money
TIME equals MONEY for a lot of people. Save 60 hours a year and money spent on lipliner and lipstick!
Who can get Lip Blush?
Lip Blush is suitable for all ages, skin types and genders.
Darker skin tones may need additional appointments to neutralise the darker tones which tend to appear as blue/purple/brown on the outer edges and throughout the lip.
Please note that Lip Blush tattoo can reactivate the Herpes Simplex Virus, so if you’ve ever had lip blisters or cold sores, you must be prepared to boost your natural immune system, see your GP or Pharmacy for an antiviral and have a topical antiviral on hand. All the details pertaining to this will be discussed at your consultation.
For further information, please read the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of this page (prior to your consultation).
#3 Benefit - Boost Confidence
Be assured your lips will remain defined day and night, whether you're working, exercising, eating, drinking or kissing. Also say goodbye to eating lipstick!

Lip Blush Bookings
What is the Lip Blush PROCESS?All Cosmetic Tattoo's are a 2-step process (minimum): The first appointment focuses on design & colour. The second appointment builds on the colour saturation and is an opportunity to make any small adjustments. Dark Lip Neutralisation's usually require a minimum of three (3) treatments up to twelve (12) weeks apart. You will be asked to apply the First numbing cream yourself and arrive to your appointment with it still in place. Your comfort is a high priority throughout the treatment, therefore the use of two different numbing creams will assist. Some clients are super comfortable that they fall asleep! A complimentary After-Care pack will be supplied at your initial appointment so that you can take care of your new Lip Blush tattoo.
How do I MAKE A BOOKING for my Lip Blush tattoo at Daisy Skin?A 15-30 minute consultation is required for all new Lip Tattoo clients. Book your In-Person or Phone consult here. The consult is complimentary (free). Prior to any consult you will be required to read the information available on the Daisy Skin website as it contains important information and Frequently Asked Questions. The consult is reserved for personalised questions. For Phone consultations you will be required to email/message two (2) clear photos: Full face (no makeup on Lips) Close-up of Lips (no makeup) ***Be sure to clean your camera lense. Use the main camera of your phone (not the Selfie front camera). If you choose to proceed with Lip Blush, a $100 deposit will be taken to secure your appointment. You will receive information to order your numbing creams from a compounding pharmacy.
Is Lip Blush tattoo SAFE?Only Cosmetic Tattoo professionals with Lip Tattoo and Infection Control certification should perform Lip Blush as there are many factors to consider before and throughout the application. Daisy Skin only use the highest quality pigments suitable for cosmetic tattoo that are certified vegan and sterilised by gamma radiation. Strict hygiene is adhered to for all treatments at Daisy Skin, together with proper use and disposal of single-use EO gas sterilised needle cartridges.
Is there any DOWNTIME after getting Lip Blush?Immediately following the LIP BLUSH procedure, you will be encouraged to do an ice-compress to reduce future swelling. Whilst the lips may still be numb and feel very plump, it is safe to return to light duties for the remainder of the day. Be sure to familiarise yourself with Your Care Guide to optimise results!
How long does Lip Blush tattoo LAST?Generally a Lip Blush tattoo can stay vibrant for up to 18 months. It is recommended that your Cosmetic Tattoo be 'ColourBoosted' once every 12-18 months to keep it looking fresh. It is always great to remember that as everyones skin is unique therefore the longevity of any tattoo is dependent on your lifestyle, medications and how closely the Pre-Care and Post-Care guidelines are followed.
How does a Lip Blush cosmetic tattoo COMPARE TO BODY TATTOOS?This is a great question as many people dive into getting a cosmetic tattoo believing it is permanent like their body tattoos! This is not the case at all (unless your Cosmetic Tattooist has incorrectly used body ink). Semi-permanent makeup is designed to enhance your natural facial features, so the specially formulated cosmetic pigments are designed to fade as you age. Allow us to explain further. With aging comes skin laxity (reduction in collagen & elastin), therefore an increase in wrinkles. Imagine having permanent ink on your face that no longer enhances your features, but makes you appear older or washed out? Your face is a canvas you look at every day. Remember it is a GREAT thing that cosmetic tattoos are semi-permanent!
My lips are UNEVEN. Can Lip Blush correct my lip SYMMETRY?With our faces anatomically not symmetrical, lips can be uneven at birth or have been changed from an accident, stroke, surgery, treatment or viral infection. Generally, Lip Blush tattoo will not go outside the natural lip border because the lip and skin tissue will metabolise the pigment at different rates. This means that the lip and skin tissue will fade at different times, requiring more regular treatments. By special request Daisy Skin can tattoo outside of the natural lip border to correct asymmetry. Clients that have permanently lost lip pigment can RESTORE their lip pigmentation to achieve a "full lip" again. Please note that Lip Restoration Cosmetic Tattoos generally require 2-3 appointments 6-12 weeks apart (depending on skin tone).
I have very sensitive skin. Is a PATCH TEST available?Patch Tests are recommended for clients who have a history of skin inflammation or concerned about a possible inflammatory reaction to the permanent makeup procedure. The Patch Test is a comprehensive test using ALL instruments and agents used throughout the Permanent Makeup application (including but not limited to: nitrile gloves, drafting pencils, alcohol wipe, medical marker, topical numbing creams, sterile needle cartridge, pigment, wipes, aftercare etc). The test itself is performed in a discrete area behind the ear. This location is sensitive and most similar to the skin on your face. If no allergic reaction is present after 7 days of the Patch Test an Initial Tattoo booking can be made. Discuss your skin sensitivity at your consult. Comprehensive Patch Tests are $75.

If you have ever had Fever Blisters or Cold Sores you will need additional instructions on how to help prevent an outbreak. This information will be provided at your consult.
What is the AFTER-CARE guide for Lip Tattoos?Day of Treatment ✔️ Ice-compress (10 mins on / 10 mins off) until swelling subsides ✔️ Sleep on a fresh pillowslip For 7 Days (or until fully healed) ✔️ Apply Aftercare Balm several times a day ✔️ Stay hydrated (drink lots of water) ❌ No makeup / sunscreen / moisturiser on Lips ❌ No swimming / saunas / spas / long showers ❌ No sun exposure ❌ No pulling / picking / scratching ❌ No kissing ❌ No salty or spicy foods Until your lips are fully healed DO NOT touch them with unclean hands! This can introduce bacteria to the area which can lead to infection ☹ Complimentary Aftercare Balm is supplied at every appointment to help you care for your fresh lips. Itchy? Tingly? Stingy? A cold sore may be developing. Seek treatment ASAP from your local Chemist or Doctor. Do not delay in seeking appropriate treatment as a cold sore can pull the pigment out of the lip as it’s considered another fresh wound in the area.
How does Lip Blush HEAL?Everyone's healing will slightly differ, however there are typical signs of the lip healing process: Day 0-1 Bold vibrant colour, more plump than usual. Sensitive/tender to touch. Day 2-7 Lips feel dry initially, then they will flake/peel. Day 4-7 Lips healed. Colour may be 50-80% of original intensity, then "bloom" to their true/final colour 4-12 weeks later (depending on skin tone) Week 6/12 Return for the Topup appointment to build on the colour density and make any minor adjustments 💥Fascinating tip: Lip colours can change depending on time of day and your levels of hydration 😉
