A full consultation is always carried out before commencing tattooing, which will help to ease any of your anxieties. We go over with the client exactly what they want to achieve including shape and colour, taking into account natural colourings then pre-draw the lips using a pencil, carefully measuring them and ensuring they are as close to perfect as possible. A tiny pen-like machine is then used to gently deposit pigment into the lips, slowly building a beautifully natural lip color. This allows the color to gradually be deposited so that there is full control over the boldness of the lip color. Every client requires a different approach to reach the best outcome, simply because every lip is unique.
