Lip Tattooing Sydney


A Lip Blush enhances the beauty of the natural lip colour. Restoring definition and colour into the lips, creating a lip tint effect. Subtle or bright colours can be used to achieve your desired look.


Price Varies

Touchups are considered when the initial semi-permanent makeup is still visible and does not require major re-mapping & colour implantation. Existing Clients Only. At Eva Mercedes we do NOT do colour boosts for clients who did not get their initial permanent makeup from us. All clients with existing permanent makeup need to book in for a 15 minute consultation prior to making an appointment. ***However, our advice is to allow your lips to fully fade before returning, then booking another first-timer session.


How to make sure your results last

Before each treatment, the skin should not be burnt, nor in recovery or regeneration process.
The following treatments are not recommended 30 days before the treatment:
• Fillers
• Fruit or lactic acids
• Laser treatments
• Chemical peel
• Exposure to strong sunlight.


During the first day gently, without rubbing, cleanse your lips with luke warm water every 30-60 minutes. Remove lymph from your lips to prevent creation of big scabs. Having removed the lymph, apply the recommended cream on your lips. This cream can be applied any time when the client feels tightening of the lips in the following 7 days.


During the first 7 days avoid saunas, swimming pools, makeup on the lips area, sun tanning & cosmetic treatments. If necessary, correction can be done 4 weeks later, when the lips are fully regenerated. The disappeared pigment is added on this occasion. Lip refreshment can be done once a year if a client wants a more intense colour.


In order to preserve the colour for as long as possible, use SPF on the area when sun tanning.


First 7 Days Avoid:

  • Makeup
  • Saunas
  • Swimming pool
  • Gym
  • If you have facial treatments, protect your lips with cotton pads.
