After listening to your wishes, a good professional will definitely suggest an option that will suit your face type and hair color. No need to choose too bright, unnatural color.
You can draw only the outline of the lips, or you can do shading. Without shading, your lips look like outlined with a contour pencil. The master, after drawing the outline, paints over the space between the new and old borders.
During the tattoo procedure, periodically, the master wipes his lips with a cotton swab soaked in green soap.
After finishing work, the master will apply an antiseptic agent to your lips, then a special ointment. After 15 minutes, it is removed with a napkin and. to protect the lips, apply oil or balm. A slight puffiness forms on the lips, which makes the lips look too large. To reduce it, it is recommended to apply a cold compress.
