Permanent Lipstick is Awesome! - San Jose, CA

Hi, I had permanent lipstick done last month and decided to write a review. I am so happy I did this but still waiting for the pigment to lighten. I am posting my pics by date order so you can see the changes over time. I have been wanting to get permanent lipstick for a long time now and finally made the time to do it. I had my eyebrows done 3 years ago and it is now due for a touch up but too scared of the "ugly phase" where my eyebrows are black! I spoke to my new tatoo artist, Jennifer about it and she said she will be able to use a different color of pigment so it wont be black. We shall see.

Day 0 - 4/25/2014

I had my lipstick tattoo done on April 25, 2014. It was a 4 hour ordeal!! Jennifer was very patient and made sure I had a lot of topics anesthetic. However, it still hurt like mothertucker.

Very cool! I'd like to have my eyeliner done. My friend says it only lasts about 5 years, then you have to have it redone, but so worth it!

The eyeliner is too scary for me, I have these fears of slipping and the needle poking my eye :) but I'm really happy with the lips. My eyebrows are due for a tune up since it's been like 3 yeas but I hate the first month or so when the pigment is so dark. My lips are still too dark. I hope it gets to the shade of pink I was hoping for by next month.

Pics in date order - including the "before"

for the record

Your lips look great but what I want to know is why you would want full lipstick on first thing in the morning. Or if you were sick in the hospital and no make up, pale as a ghost with full lipstick. or after swimming. Sometimes lipstick doesn't look right.

Hi terrora, I guess I am one of those strange birds. when I wake up in the morning and see myself in the mirror, I love it! I don't look pale and anemic. I love the lipstick look so I guess this is not for everyone. :)
