After your procedure
As with most tattoo procedures, your lips may be temporarily swollen immediately after. There may be some tenderness and it will feel like minor bruising, but this will go away in a few days. The lip colour will look much brighter and darker within the first week, but the colour will soften significantly over the next few weeks. An aftercare balm with topical anesthetic will be provided to help with the healing. Post care instructions will be instructed after the procedure to ensure you understand it completely and are comfortable before you leave.
