What does my lip look like immediately after the procedure?
The lips will be swollen and usually takes at most 24 hours to normalize.
The lips will be bright in colour and darken slightly. Healed results are 40-60% of that colour.
What are the two different stages of healing?
Between Days 2-5: thin scabs will form which should be left to fall off on it’s own
Day 5 - Week 6: colour will slowly come back and it is normal to have some patchiness until Week 6.
When is it necessary to come back for a touch up appointment?
For tattoo longevity I strongly recommend coming for a touch-up between the 6-8 week mark from the initial session
