The process of having this treatment done takes about 3 hours. Prior to tattooing the lip color we must pre draw and create the shape that will work best for you and your lip goals. We must also consult about what to expect and choose the right color for what you are looking to achieve. Finally before the lip blushing begins, a 20 minute session of numbing. We like to keep our clients comfortable and relaxed while enjoying a beauty treatment with us.

Does it hurt? The pain of having lip blush tattoo created is very mild. On a scale of 1-10 most clients would rate it as a 3. The pain you experience is controlled by numbing. Numbing is used both before the semi permanent service is preformed and during the procedure as well. Unlike the process of getting a traditional tattoo, lip blushing is done on the surface layers of the skin. Making cosmetic tattoo semipermanent and way less painful!

For basic lip blush heal time four to six weeks. Heal time for lip neutralizing is six to eight weeks. With both lip blushing permanent makeup procedures the skin will heal in 1 week but the color can take the full duration of four to eight weeks to fully develop. 

What You Can Expect:

Semi-permanent lip blushing is a tattoo created for lips to give lips a natural lip color that won't wash off. On the first day immediately after having the lips tattooed you will experience some swelling. This is completely normal, and the swelling will subside in 24 hours. On the first day your lip blushing will appear very bright in color. This will fade about 50 percent lighter once the lips have healed. The color will heal soft and subtle. Lip blushing is meant to be a natural lip color for your lips. Lip Blushing is no meant to give you a lipstick look once healed. On day 2 after receiving lip blushing you will notice the color will appear a bit darker. This is because you are now forming a scab, you will also notice your swelling has subsided. On Day 3-4 your lips will become very dry and flakey. As the skin flakes away you will see the shade change and the color soften to a more subtle tone. Days 5-7  the lips will be a bit dry as the skin rebuilds itself. Basic lip blushing takes about four to six weeks to fully develop. After the first week of initial healing the lips will appear light in their tone, almost as if some f the color is missing. This is normal and the color will even out and develop into its final healed natural lip color at the four week mark. The fatty areas of the lip tissue tend to take longer to develop. This process varies from person to person.  If you are going through the process of neutralizing the lips with lip blushing tattoo you may experience a couple different lip phases before developing into the final healed result six to eight weeks later. Those phases are that your lips can appear darker than when you first started, your lips can look patchy, or even look like nothing happened at all before they fully develop. All of these phases are normal and all apart of the lip blushing journey. You must wait until the lips are fully healed before it is safe to tattoo them again with continued sessions. All ink and pigment is Vegan friendly. All ink and pigment is non toxic. Cosmetic tattoo is a tattoo. It is semipermanent and natural looking.

  • Please take a break from vitamin c serums, retinoids, and glycolic treatments,  around the mouth area at least 2 weeks before your session and 2 weeks after for best healed lip blushing results.
  • Do not drink alcohol or take blood thinning medication 24 hrs before appointment
  • No Caffeine 24 hrs before your lip blushing tattoo, this will cause you to bleed and brush during the process.
  • Please wait 1 month after lip blush to receive fillers. (or 1 month prior)
  • If you suffer from cold sores (even just once ever in your whole life) you must take an anti-viral medication (like Valtrex) 2-3 days before, and 3-5 days after having your lips tattooed as directed by your doctor. We are tattoo artists, we are not doctors, we cannot prescribe you anti-viral medication. This is something that must be obtained by your doctor. This issue is extremely common, about 90% of the population suffers from them. They can be caught from something as simple as sharing a drink, even if the person you are sharing a drink with have no apparent blisters. Lip Blushing does not cause cold sores, however, the injury to the lip tissue from being tattooed can cause an outbreak if the virus already lives dormant in your body. An outbreak can damage your lip blushing results, so when in doubt, reach out to your MD and get an anti-viral before your appointment. If you know for sure you are not someone who gets cold sores you can skip this step and count yourself as lucky!

"First Class Cosmetics offers exceptional service, and Michelle is very patient and skilled in what she does. She makes this experience as pleasant as it can possibly get. I'd highly recommend First Class Cosmetics for any of your skin care treatments."


"I highly recommend the lip blush procedure for men. I loved Savannah's professionalism and I loved the super natural result, I'm super happy!I think everyone should do it. The shape and tone of the lips improve a lot. Savannah gave me a lot of confidence and her hands are like an angel's, I didn't feel any pain. The place is very clean and hygienic and the atmosphere very pleasant... Also very good location."


"Had my first experience with lip blush and it was a smooth experience. Savannah tailored a perfect color blend for me, walked me through everything and even gave me an aftercare mini package. Loved Savannah’s passion for her work!! This girl is the sweetest and answered all my questions. Came back a second time for powdered brows and i just have to say I’m so glad I got this done , I’m so thankful that I do not have to fill in my eyebrows anymore!!!"


"The space was so chic and a great atmosphere! I am so happy with the results they exceeded my expectations by far to say the least! She explained everything in perfect detail. I felt a part of it all every step of the way! She is amazing and I will definitely be back for more! Everyone is already raving over my new juicy amazing lips! Whoever said lip blush is only for girls? My lips look so natural and full!"


"I don't wear much lip color so I wanted a natural color with a lot more pop than my normal lips. This is exactly what I got! The process itself had very minimal pain and the healing process was a lot smoother than I thought it would be! I have no doubt that part of the credit for this goes to Savannah and her skills. She specifically chooses techniques that are easy on your skin and not damaging and it shows."


Can I wear makeup after the procedure?
No makeup should be worn on the lips immediately after or for 7 days after the service.
Can you make my lips look bigger?
Yes, we can! In a subtle manner of course. Our goal is always to enhance your natural beauty and give you tattooing that looks real. Your shape is something we can definitely adjust, however when it comes to the shape we cannot tattoo outside of lip tissue. This does NOT age well, and can sometimes leave behind permanent damage to the surrounding skin. We know we are tattooing lips because lips have no pores. Mostly we see lips that have lost pigment or have deepened pigment around the outer edges of the lips, so once assessed we can properly shape the lips in a way that makes them look larger but in the most believable way! This is not a traditional tattoo, and the pigments used are designed to heal soft.
Do I choose my color?
Color choice is selected together, both artist and client. Bringing in photos of styles you like or even a favorite lipstick is great as we can get and idea of what you are aiming for. The color that is tattooed is not what your final result will be. With your trust, we can get you to your goals and help you decide what will be best for you when it comes to this treatment.
How long does lip blushing last?
This treatment lasts 2-4 years. It can be maintained with annual refresh sessions. Each year the tattoo shade will get lighter and lighter until your natural lip tissue is restored to its natural tissue. In some lip neutralizing cases the tattoo has lasted 2-7 years before entirely wearing out. Unlike traditional tattoos cosmetic tattooing is semipermanent.
Will I be in a lot of pain when receiving lip tattooing?
NO! The pain is very mild and controlled by numbing agents from start to finish. A lot of our clients fall asleep during the procedure, and say they feel almost no pain!
Will I need to wear lipstick ever again?
Lip blushing is designed to embrace your natural beauty. As our client, the goal is to enhance your daily life with time saving looks that feel real. The pigments we use are made to heal believable looking. Super opaque lipstick looks are not what we aim for. Fresh, healthy, glowing skin that looks effortless - not that you are wearing loads of makeup is what we try to achieve. Our pigment is designed to develop with a beautiful tinted look.
