Preparation for lip tattoo and tattoo procedure
There are several rules that will help you prepare well for a lip tattoo:
About a week before the planned procedure, you need to start taking antiviral drugs to prevent herpes infection. During this course, you cannot go to the beach, visit the bathhouse, sauna, and solarium.
The day before the session, you should refuse alcoholic beverages, strong coffee, exclude spicy and salty dishes from the menu. These foods contribute to blood vessel bleeding and prevent the body from absorbing and assimilating pigment.
The date of the procedure should be chosen based on your menstrual cycle. Critical days are not the right time for a tattoo.
Colds and exacerbation of chronic diseases are a good reason to postpone a trip to the salon until you recover or start to feel better.
But before taking the preparatory steps, you need to find a worthy master. Don’t think that such people work only in the most expensive places, and choose according to this criterion. It is better to ask your friends who have already done lip tattooing in your city and were satisfied. Finding the coordinates of a referral specialist is the best option.
The main thing is not to try to get rid of these crusts, otherwise, wounds will appear again. If an infection gets into them, then there will be inflammation, which will have to be treated for a long time. In addition, healthy skin can peel off along with the crusts, then in place of the tiny injection mark there will be a much larger focus of damage, after its healing, a scar will remain.

to protect the wound from infection, it is necessary to carefully treat the lips 2-3 times a day with “Chlorhexidine”;
for wounds to heal better, it is required to regularly apply a regenerating cream to the skin, for example, “Bepanten”.
Lips with lip tattooing periodically need to touch up. The first one is done 21-28 days after the procedure in order to correct any deficiencies (if any) and to thicken the pigment. In the future, they turn to touch up if they want to update a colour that has lost its saturation. This happens at intervals of 2-3 years.
