Asymmetry is common in lips and can be corrected with cosmetic lip tattoos, helping to create the balance needed, in turn improving the appearance of the lips shape and fullness.
Very common as we age is that the definition of the top lip disappears and blends with our skin. This procedure is an excellent option to re-create a beautiful lip line or correct an asymmetrical lip line.
Lip tattoos are a great option for those wanting to define their lips whether they are already a lovely full lip wanting to define the colour and shape or a thin lip needing enhancement, giving all lips a beautiful blushed look.
Note: Those that have ever suffered from cold sores will need to use an anti-herpes breakout medication a week prior to their procedure. Melissa will advise.

Cosmetic tattooing methods
The first is known as Microblading and is used for '3D Feathered Hair Stroke Brows'. This technique is done by hand with a small disposable tool which has tiny needles in a row, the (numbed) skin is lightly scratched into hair strokes. The pigment is pushed into the strokes to make them darker, this is the most natural technique to get the best natural looking brows. This technique gives the effect of fine natural looking hair which either blend beautifully with the brows hairs you already have or for those with no hairs at all it will create a whole new brow full of tiny natural looking hairs.
The second method is where I use a Tattoo Machine. This method is used for ‘Powder Block Brows', 'Eyeliner' and 'Lip' tattooing. Cosmetic tattoo procedures done this way last longer as the colour and style is much thicker than microblading.
