Lip tattoo techniques examples

Techniques for permanent lip tattooing are selected by a professional master, depending on the problem that needs to be solved. All varieties of modern permanent makeup will be considered in detail below.

Contour technique

Blurred lip contour is experienced by most women over 40 years old. It is with this problem that they turn to the salon. The clear contour obtained as a result of the procedure resembles a pencil stroke.

It is worth noting that lip correction in this way does not change the shape acquired from birth. Correctly performed technique leads to a natural effect: the selected pigment, in perfect harmony with the natural shade, transforms the lips. The result of the correction looks natural and soft.

Contour technique with shading

Lip tattoo techniques

To give the lips brightness and juiciness, they use the technique of permanent makeup with shading and highlighting the contour. The idea of ​​such a tattoo is to apply a contour of the same shade as the pigment used on the lips. The middle is not stained, the effect of a slightly erased lipstick is visually created.

Due to the fact that the permanent is applied beyond the natural boundaries of the contour, the effect of plump and more voluminous lips is created. Any shade of pigment is chosen – both dark and light. The technique can be used by young ladies of all ages.

3D technique

Lip tattoo techniques

The most difficult to perform is the 3D lip tattoo technique. Permanent makeup with this effect helps to correct the nuances in the form of sloppy contour, asymmetry, insufficient or excessive fullness of the lips. The contour and shading in the 3D technique are performed using several shades of pigment. As a rule, masters use five colors, this allows you to create volume on the lips.



The 3D make-up technique, which consists of contouring and full filling of the lips, is carried out in two sessions. On the first, the master highlights the contour, on the second, he completely fills the surface of the lips. A significant disadvantage of this procedure is that after its completion it is forbidden to be in the open sun, and the liquid can only be drunk through a straw.

Lip light technique

Lip tattoo techniques

The technique of lip tattooing “Lip light” has a second name – “Light Kayal”. The procedure can only be carried out by an experienced master. By applying a light pigment over the contour, a puffy effect is created. The kayal lip tattoo technique has one important condition: the lips must be perfectly shaped! Otherwise, you can achieve the opposite effect, in which all the flaws will be highlighted.

Technique “Naturel”

Lip tattoo techniques

The Naturel technique is suitable for girls who do not want to make significant changes to the shape of the lips acquired from birth. This procedure will help to give native lips brightness and expressiveness. To do this, during the procedure, pigment shades close to the natural range are used. Surrounding such a tattoo is not striking.

watercolor technique

Lip tattoo techniques

The tattoo of the lips, made using the watercolor technique, is distinguished by the absence of clear boundaries around the lip line. The master performs the procedure using a color pigment of muted shades, gently blending it over the surface of the lips. The non-contour technique of tattooing helps to achieve the most natural and natural look.

For those around you, permanent makeup with shading will be associated with applied gloss or a pale pink balm. Lip tattooing, performed in a non-contour technique, is suitable for females of all ages.

Permanent lipstick technique

Lip tattoo techniques

During the procedure, the master uses pigment, filling the entire surface of the lips, as a result, the effect is created that they are brightly made up. This type of permanent makeup is popular with girls who want to radically change their appearance. The lipstick technique of lip tattooing completely eliminates the use of lipstick.

Properly chosen by a specialist, the shade of the pigment creates an attractive volume and a pleasant shine.

Different lip tattoo techniques are aimed at eliminating certain aesthetic problems. To get the desired result, be sure to tell the master about your wishes.

History of semi-permanent makeup in Korea.

In this post, we will learn about the history of semi-permanent makeup in Korea. 
Recently, as K-beauty, along with Korean cosmetics, the skills of Korean beauticians are highly regarded around the world. What many people do not know in this area is that Korean beauty technology has been highly valued in China and Japan. 

There are records of lip tattoos in Korea even in the 1950s and 1960s, when semi-permanent makeup (lip tattoos, eyeliner tattoos) was popular around the world. It wasn’t popular. (spread through Japan)
And with the release of glucerin-based pigments, eyebrow tattoos became popular around the world in the 1980s. In Korea, eyebrow tattoos and eyeliner tattoos were introduced through Hong Kong and Japan, and they became popular nationwide.   At that time, services were mainly performed in beauty salons. At that time, the cost of the procedure was between 10,000 won and 200,000 won. It was a very expensive procedure for the price. Considering that the eyebrow tattoo service at that time was completed with just one treatment without the concept of retouch as it is now… Expensive! Expensive!

The media at the time contained both negative and positive views about eyebrow tattoos. 
1986. December 30th. In the article ‘Hit 86’,  women’s obsession to become prettier was also specialized, and eyelash surgery, which puts permanent tattoos on the eyebrows, took a wave of fashion without knowing it. is expressed. 

*Eyelash tattoo – You can think of it as an eyeliner tattoo. However, there were problems such as reusing needles and using ink instead of coloring due to indiscriminate procedures and difficulties in supplying products without an education system. And in Ulsan in 1987, the head of a beauty salon who had eyebrow tattoos was investigated for the first time without detention by a customer who complained of dermatitis through eyebrow tattoos.  And  , according to the court records in 1988, when the medical law was violated due to eyebrow tattoos, the defendant argued that “it is a new makeup method introduced overseas, not an eyebrow tattoo, and it is a cosmetic technique that can be performed even with a cosmetic license.” not accepted.

After that, in Korea, eyebrow tattoos and eyeliner were regarded as the realm of tattoos, and semi-permanent makeup was considered illegal because of the medical law. And, according to the records of the Supreme Court ruling in 1992, the defendant submitted data that “eyebrow tattooing is not considered a medical practice because it is a makeup technique that colors the epidermis and does not reach the dermis layer”, but “the process of injecting pigment into the epidermis” It can penetrate from the dermis to the dermis. 

* It is the 1990s when most of the related laws were implemented due to the appeal of side effects of eyebrow tattoos and eyeliner tattoos not only in Korea but also around the world. 
In 1995, Germany’s semi-permanent makeup law was enacted separately from tattoos, and German-style semi-permanent makeup became world famous. What is German semi-permanent makeup? It refers to the method that the company that manufactures semi-permanent makeup products conducts training. Previously, it was an American-style semi-permanent makeup, where products and education were separated into a company producing products, an academy in charge of technical education, and a state government in charge of hygiene education. Previously, American-style semi-permanent makeup was introduced through Hong Kong, but German-style semi-permanent makeup was introduced to Korea in 1997. I planned a German training center with a beauty group and went to a German training, and a German semi-permanent makeup academy was opened in the Gangnam Station area. (Reference – Hyang Academy, the starting point of KSH Academy) 

1999. A Taiwanese tattoo machine manufacturer was influenced by German semi-permanent makeup and launched a semi-permanent makeup brand. It was a company with a concept of not selling products to designers who did not complete the training, and the product and education were carried out at the same time. 
For those who have been wearing semi-permanent makeup for a long time, the welcome name is ‘IPM’. IPM was the first company to manufacture the needles we commonly call emboss. (Previously, the commonly called Sujichim was produced and distributed mainly in China.) Under the influence of IPM, a semi-permanent makeup education boom started in Korea. It’s year 2000. And in 2002, as semi-permanent makeup became fashionable mainly at Apgujeong-dong Plastic Surgery Clinic, semi-permanent makeup shops were created, and accordingly, wholesalers specialized in distributing semi-permanent makeup products were created. At that time, German-style semi-permanent makeup and American-style semi-permanent makeup technology and Asian (Taiwan, China) semi-permanent makeup were established as Korean-style semi-permanent makeup. In 2003, SBS News reported that it was semi-permanent makeup rather than tattoos, and since then all the media have referred to it as semi-permanent makeup, naturally (although they were not separated by law), tattoos and semi-permanent makeup were classified. Because of the Korean Semi-Permanent Makeup Association, which has been active since 2001, the unique name of semi-permanent make-up has been established in Korea, not for performance make-up / micro-pigmentation. Since 2003, you can easily access semi-permanent makeup shops. You can find a place that specializes in training. 

Semi-permanent makeup has already entered our lives. For this reason, there are places that provide education indiscriminately, and there are many academies that contain materials from the Internet and seminars without understanding the principles of semi-permanent makeup.
Semi-permanent makeup machine, color, and emboss needle manufacturers, and a group of experts who have operated a professional academy for many years. UBG KOREA is conducting systematic semi-permanent makeup education through exclusive teaching materials and training kits related to semi-permanent makeup. You may be familiar with many of the materials above. Jinyong Kim, director of UBG KOREA, wrote the theory of semi-permanent makeup through semi-permanent makeup booklets published in Germany, UK, USA, China, and Taiwan, and the relationship between tattoos and skin published in the medical world. 

Morning without makeup: dream or reality?

Perfect facial features are the dream of every girl. How to look beautiful at any time of the day, stop wasting precious time on makeup, and put cosmetic brushes and pencils in a drawer for a while? The answer is known in the permanent makeup studio LStudio_beauty. Svetlana Lavrova, head of the studio, make-up artist, brow-master and teacher of the permanent make-up course, shared the secrets of perfect eyebrows, lips and eyes with

As men say, 90% of a woman’s beauty can be wiped off with a damp cloth.

– Svetlana, do you do permanent makeup or tattooing?

– Permanent make-up and tattooing are general concepts. The procedure involves the introduction of a colored pigment into the upper layer of human skin in the region of the eyebrows, eyelids or lips. It can be carried out both manually and with the help of a special apparatus. If we talk about the hardware method, then its essence is as follows: the master uses a special apparatus with a needle to put dots on the skin that form a line. So you can “draw” eyebrows, arrows on the eyelids, fill in the space between the eyelashes and give the lips a contour or color.

In Russia, permanent makeup is in demand more than ever. Of course, now this procedure is fundamentally different from what our mothers did, but its popularity among modern beauties is only growing.

– Why?

– Permanent makeup solves several women’s problems at once and makes life much easier for girls. With the help of modern methods of tattooing, you can easily transform and complement facial features. Even slightly changing the shape of the eyebrows, for example, can make the eyes more expressive. Plus, it saves time. Every day, a girl spends from 20 minutes to draw her eyebrows, eyes or lips in the morning. For some, this is indeed a problem. With permanent makeup, a girl will look beautiful at any time – naturally and well-groomed. Tattoo makes girls even more beautiful – everyone dreams about it.

How to prepare for permanent makeup? Does the girl need to do something on the eve of the meeting with the master?

– Stock up on a good mood and be happy: you can sleep 20 minutes longer in the morning, and in the evening you won’t have to wash off the beauty. ( Smiles .) Seriously, a few days before the procedure, it is worth limiting the consumption of alcohol and drugs that thin the blood. After the permanent has healed, you can live a normal life without any restrictions.

– How does the procedure go, and how long does it take for the face to heal after permanent makeup?

– The procedure takes a maximum of two hours. To begin with, we communicate with the girl, find out what worries her, and discuss her wishes. We select the shape and shades that suit her. During the procedure, I tell in detail what I will do in the next moment, I warn about possible sensations – it is important for me that the client is calm and comfortable all the time.

Permanent makeup lasts on average from one to one and a half years, depending on the condition of the skin, lifestyle, metabolism of the girl. The more active it is, the faster the pigment will come off. After the procedure, small crusts or peeling may form on the eyebrows or lips – this is a reaction to damage to the upper layers of the epidermis. If they interfere strongly, you can treat with an ointment to soften and heal. But in general, the crusts do not cause any particular inconvenience. There is an interesting point: when they come off, the color on the new lips and eyebrows is not always immediately noticeable. This should not be frightened – the desired shade appears within a month after the procedure. After a month and a half, it is necessary to make a correction to consolidate the result.

Does permanent makeup hurt?

– It doesn’t hurt at all, I use cream anesthesia before and during the procedure. Possible pain sensations depend on the individual characteristics of the body of each girl, on her pain threshold.

A successful tattoo is one that only you and your master know about.

 – A couple of years ago, everyone started talking about microblading. How is this procedure different from a regular tattoo?

Microblading is a manual technique for permanent makeup. It is carried out by a master and a special maniple with a needle. Microblading allows you to draw each eyebrow hair, creating the most natural shape, thickness, bend and color shade. The result looks so natural that it is difficult to determine where the natural hair is and where it is painted. Microblading is considered successful if others do not even know that you have corrected something for yourself.

– When choosing between a hardware permanent and manual microblading, should you give preference to the second one?

– The result of these procedures varies, and it is impossible to say unequivocally which technique is better. If a girl has normal or dry skin, and at the same time has her own hairs on her eyebrows, microblading will be the perfect solution. If the skin is porous and prone to oiliness, then the hardware technique in the “shading” technique for this type will be more successful. If we talk about other differences, then the hardware method is less traumatic and more superficial. The tattoo will come off faster compared to microblading. For girls who follow fashion, this is even a plus, because trends change very quickly. So everyone chooses a procedure to their liking.

What eyebrows do fashionistas wear today?

– Eyebrows with a clear line, which were done a couple of years ago, are no longer relevant. For the last year and a half, on the contrary, hairs that grow as naturally as possible are valued. Now the widest eyebrows with almost no bend are in fashion – they symbolize youth. After all, young girls have just such eyebrows – thick and fluffy. I think that mindlessly chasing fashion is not worth it. Choose those sizes, shapes and shades that suit your face, look harmonious and natural on it.

– Is it possible to predict what forms will be in trend in a year?

– To keep abreast of the latest trends in the beauty industry, I am in constant professional development. I regularly travel to Moscow and foreign workshops, seminars and conferences. I bring not only trends, but also knowledge about new materials and tools.

– I suspect that certificates and diplomas do not yet make a permanent master a good master. How to understand that you are really a professional?

– Over the past year, the number of eyebrow masters in Chelyabinsk has increased tenfold. It’s really getting harder to find one. Do not try to choose the cheapest offer. Your own face is not the place to save money on. The experience and qualifications of the master is more important here than the cost of his services. Before recording, find out how often and how much the master invests in himself, if there are any recommendations. It is very important to look at the healed works. High-quality materials for permanent make-up cannot be cheap either. Any cosmetic procedure should be carried out in a clean, well-groomed and tidy office.

Everyone can learn the secret of perfect eyebrows

– Svetlana, people come to you not only for beautiful eyebrows. In your studio, you run training courses on brow architecture and microblading.

– Yes, two years ago I launched a training program on manual permanent makeup techniques. Many girls want to get into the beauty industry, but do not know what area they should choose. This course is suitable for everyone and does not require any special preparation. We will teach you everything from scratch, starting with a basic course in eyebrow architecture.

– What does the course consist of?

– Microblading training takes three full days: the first two we do theory with practice on artificial skin, then we move on to practice on models. All this time I do not leave the students – I direct each of their drawn lines. Small groups – three people each – allow you to work individually with each student. Well, I don’t leave my girls after training – they can always call me with a question or advice, because especially at first it’s very important to feel the teacher’s support.

– What is the point of your education?

“It was based on my own experience and the mistakes I went through. Microblading masters tell students how to choose shades, how to draw to correct the appearance. But for some reason, those rakes that can be encountered on a professional path are bypassed. And there are plenty of pitfalls in this technique. It is important for me to teach all the subtleties on which the outcome of the procedure depends. Knowing what to rely on and what not to do will largely protect the craftsmen from dissatisfied customers and their own disappointments.
