Would You Get A Tattoo On Your Lips? Beauty Blogger Films Every Step Of Getting Her Lips Tattooed

There’s no doubt that Kylie Jenner is the worldwide queen when it comes to lips. But achieving your own plump, full lips may not be too far away thanks to a new beauty technique – lip tattooing.

Australian beauty vlogger Rachael Annear, from Sydney, has put the tattoo technique to the test, undergoing the treatment in search of lip perfection and sharing the process online.

In a video of the process posted to her YouTube page, Ms Annear admits that she is slightly nervous before beginning her $800 (Sh.81,000) treatment. She tells viewers that in a previous consultation she chose her lip colour, opting for a ‘natural pink’.

‘We came up with a combination that I like (in a previous consultation) and I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit nervous. I really want it to be quite natural and look like my lips, but better.’ she said.

Lying down on the bed, the beauty therapists apply a numbing cream to her lips before the procedure gets underway. After outlining her lips it’s on to colouring them in with her chosen shade, a process that appears quite painful.

Price of beauty: The lip tattoo treatment generally costs anywhere from $700 to $900 and involves three consultations

Once completed, Ms Annear’s lips instantly swell up, but she says the pain wasn’t unbearable. ‘Honestly, it didn’t hurt too bad,’ she said.

‘It just felt a lot of the time like pushing really hard with a little bit of a scratchy feeling at the end, as if someone was using a pin.’

Over the coming days, the beauty vlogger sees a progression from her initially swollen lips to dry, cracking lips and then eventually peeling lips.

Two months post operation Ms Annear’s lips finally reach the colour she’d intended and appears happy with the results.

‘It’s been about two months since I got my lips tattooed and the colour has settled pretty much to where it’s supposed to be, a kind of neutral pink colour,’ she said.

Success! 'I¿m really happy with the colour and overall I'm really happy with the process,' Ms Annear said
