Lip tattooing, also known as Semi Permanent Lip Liner & Blush, is the process of tattooing the lips to create a fuller, more enhanced lip.
Semi Permanent Lip Liner & Blush is almost exactly what you would expect from its name.
Your professional Semi Permanent Makeup technician will tattoo an outline on the boarder of your lips. Then, she/he will shade in to the middle of the lip to create a permanent ‘blush’ effect – creating a fuller lip.
How long does it last?
Semi Permanent Lip Liner & Blush (Lip Tattooing) usually lasts for 12-18 months.
This is a question that we get asked by EVERYBODY that walks through the doors of our 17 Beauty Ink salons nationwide.
Every individual’s body works at a different pace – and some will hold the pigment for a lot longer than others. However, we usually advise between 12-18 months.
A while back, permanent makeup used to be applied with real ink, just like a normal body tattoo. This would last longer, because body tattoo ink has a watery consistency and the body doesn’t try to kick it out as quickly. However, body tattoo ink doesn’t look very natural at all!
In today’s world, Semi Permanent Makeup is applied with pigment, rather than ink. Pigment is thicker – and gives a much more natural finish, but the body removes it in about 12-18 months.
A great Semi Permanent Makeup technician will be able to give a client an almost unnoticeable set of tattooed lips, or brows, all thanks to modern pigments.
Are lip liner tattoos better than temporary lip fillers?
Lip liner tattoos are totally different to temporary lip fillers – and both have their benefits. The purpose of lip liner & blush tattoo services is to add colour to the lips – giving a sharper, more enhanced set of lips. However, it is absolutely not intended to make the lips bigger than they are. People just love the vibrancy that Semi Permanent Lip Tattoo services offer.
Lip fillers are totally different. They’re all about adding some volume & plump. Kylie Jenner has almost revolutionised the Dermal Filler industry – taking her almost non-existent lips to powerful & full lips.
“I occasionally get asked if I can make a client’s lips bigger with lip tattoo services. Semi Permanent Makeup technicians won’t ever put pigment outside of the natural lip line – as the pigment will develop in to an entirely different colour on the skin than it does on a lip. If people are looking for much bigger lips, I often tell them to go to a cosmetic specialist for some dermal fillers before I deliver the lip tattoo services. This ensures that the lips are the desired size, and that the lip colour is great.”
– Sinead Corcoran, Owner of Beauty Ink Ireland
How much does lip tattooing cost?
This depends on the quality that you’re desiring. Here at BeautyInk Ireland our price for a Lip Tattoo procedure is Ómbre effect €350 or Blush all over €350, Touch ups 6-8 weeks €100. It is likely that you could find the service cheaper elsewhere – but we’ve seen far too often that you get what you pay for.
We’ve invested heavily in to continuous advanced training courses like the Baltic Brows Conference in the Caribbean this year, the best equipment available on the market, and the best pigments to ensure that our procedures are of an extremely high quality.
It requires a lot of commitment to allow somebody to put a tattoo on to your lips – so whether you choose to go with Beauty Ink Ireland or not, we always advise to make sure that you are dealing with a high quality technician.
Is it painful?
Let’s put it this way… Yes, because you’re having a sensitive part of your body tattooed – but no, because it really isn’t as bad as some people believe it is.
Yes. It is painful. But not excruciating. It is a needle going in to the your lip, so there is bound to be some pain. But in my opinion, waxing hurts way more! I stubbed my toe today and that was at least 100X worse. I stood on a plug a few weeks ago and I think that was about 500X worse. There are so many things that are worse.
Try not to be so scared of the pain that you’re not willing to have the procedure done. I promise you, you’ll survive.
I hope this has explained Lip Tattoo services in a way that gives you some confidence. We have lots of clients every week who can’t live without their Semi Permanent Lip Liner & Blush now. It’s a fundamental piece of their beauty schedule.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to book in for a free consultation to see what Lip Tattooing could do for you, send us a message on Facebook, email or ring us and we’ll make sure you’re looked after.
Women may be associated as worrying more about their appearances, but being self-conscious about looks isn’t only applied to XX chromosomes.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of men have thinning hair by the time they are 35, and 85 percent are thinning by 50 years old.
“Men care about this more than people know,” says Baltic Brows founder Sinead Corcoran, adding that currently there is little that can be done about it. “Hair transplant technology isn't always a guaranteed sure bet ” she says. There are 150,000 hairs on the average human head; transplants add 2,000 to 3,000 hairs and can sometimes leave scars.
Sinead’s micropigmentation skills fill in bald spots with a needle and ink, leaving that shaved-stubble look that she says is guaranteed to work.
Vincenzo Coni operates intricologic paramedical permanent makeup and has successfully developed a new technique of Hair pigmentation demominata "Scalppigmentation 3D". Unique of its kind allows for hyperrealistic results attention to the smallest detail and durable over time for both men and women. He teaches hair pigmentation at private schools and at his offices "Dermatrico Repair" of which he is Ceo Founder.
Sinead and Vincenzo are both Baltic Brows MASTERS and recently attended the Baltic Brows international Conference in the Caribbean together. Sinead is an expert in the Semi Permanent make up field and teaches Microblading and semi permanent make up in training classes around Ireland.
She loves seeing people’s natural reactions to their transformations and is grateful to be making a living helping others. 'A skill like Microblading doesn't just make men and women look more attractive, it also allows them to feel like the best version of themselves. That's why I love my job so much', Sinead from Beauty Ink Ireland.

Hurricane Irma isn't stopping the Beauty Ink Team from attending the Baltic Brows conference in Carribean
Most powerful hurricane ever recorded over Atlantic Ocean batters Barbuda, St Martin and Puerto Rico as it moves west with category 5 winds and rains. This isn't stopping Sinead from Beauty Ink who is currently in the Dominican Republic at the Baltic Brows Semi Permanent Make Up Conference.
The conference has been delayed until the 10th as many of the speakers, guests and MASTERS had flights cancelled or delayed. However Sinead and some members of the Baltic Brows International team had already landed in the Caribbean before the storm had hit.
The International team are being kept safe with make shift beds in a local Casino. Where water, food, bathroom facilities and limited amounts of wifi are being provided.
Sinead has reported back that everyone is still in great spirits and that the team members who have arrived are looking forward to the conference going ahead once the storm has passed. They are being looked after brilliantly by the locals and the conference team.
The Beauty Ink team here in Ireland are looking forward to seeing lots more happier videos and pictures once everything has settled and the Baltic Brows conference gets the green light to go ahead.
Stay safe Sinead xxx
