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.

4/25 later that day

Swelling was not so bad in the first day

4/26 : next day holy tamoli!!

Hello Angelina Jolie!!

Day 3, 4/27

There was ink oozing from my lips and I was washing it and trying to wipe it off with water and Cotton balls.

Today, third week

I'll post more pics on monday

Pics in date order - including the "before"

for the record

Color correction 12/21/14

I wanted a lighter shade and a minor fix to even out the line on the right side.

2+ weeks later, color got darker again

Well, I guess there's just too much blue in my skin pigment and the nice pink shade darkened. I think now I'll wait for it to fade (1+ years) then tray more along the coral/red shades

Color keeps changing!

So far, I am still really happy about my lip color. It looks quite natural and matches my skin tone.

She is the best!!
