Often the contour on the vermillion border of the lip is lost through the aging process or injury. This procedure is designed to define lips, not to create volume or puffiness. It will just give you the appearance of a full lip. As part of the process is outlining right on the border of the lip, this helps to give your lips the appearance that they’re fuller. It’s all about the illusion. The border of the lip is outlined and color is shaded down into the middle of the lip in a circular motion to give it more of a blended look. The interior part of the lip is left without color. More or less colour can be used in the procedure depending on clients desired outcome. Lip tattoos are meant to enhance lips, not create actual fullness.
