I had permanent lip liner tattooed on. It was vegetable-based inks, I believe. A mix of red, pink, anti-blue drop, and white. I think that it may have had a touch of brown in it too. All that was mixed and then tattooed in. Not layer by layer, but in a mix done at once. As the photo shows, the person did it way over my lip line. I hate it. It looks like I don't know how to put lipstick on. Do you think laser will remove it completely? Also, could laser tattoo removal cause scars?
Can Laser Remove a Terrible Permanent Lip Liner?

Laser tattoo removal will remove lip line tattooing
The use of a q-switched tattoo removal laser is an effective treatment to remove unwanted lip liner. It may take multiple treatments but generally is very successful. Typically for red inks it takes us about 4 to 6 treatments. Other types of tattoo lasers can take from 4 to 12 treatments. It is unlikely that the laser for tattoo would cause scarring based upon the photos you have submitted.
