​​

Immediately after procedure: Clean lips with damp cotton round (clean bottled water) every 30 minutes until bedtime.

Night of procedure: If the lips still have dry lymph, wash with lukewarm water gently removing the dry lymph, pat dry and apply Aquaphor Healing Ointment. Lips may be swollen and puffy. The lips can bruise even after the procedure, do not worry; the bruising will subside within a couple hours after the procedure.

Day 2: ​The lips may be swollen the second day as well. Please do not ice the lips. Keep the skin moist at all times, do not let the lips be dry. (Aquaphor) Use a straw for all liquids.

Day 3 – 7: Apply Aquaphor as needed – do not let the lips feel dry. 

Peeling may begin a few days after receiving a tattoo. Some guests do not peel. This process can last up to a week or longer. Do not use any products other than Aquaphor Healing Ointment (or Grapeseed Oil if allergic to petroleum).

The touch up is best to be done 8 weeks later, allowing sufficient time for clients that heal longer, and more healing time for mature clients as well.

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your appointment. Lip blush is $650 + tax.
