This week I tattooed my lips again! Ämma who is Annika's new apprentice got a cancellation and needed someone else to tattoo so then I lined up, mine still needed to be filled in :)
I only made the edges of the upper lip because that was where it was needed.
Actually, I had not intended to put on make-up the days after, you are not allowed to put on your lips at all during the healing and there would still be no nice blog pictures. But then when I woke up in the morning, really sore around the mouth, two huge pimples and fluffy all over my face, then I just thought no this year is not haha.
I had slept a little longer than usual so that I would not really put on make-up, so I had to prioritize breakfast for a quick base, brow, mascara and in fact as enormously illegal as I am, I put on my lips too! But with clean, hygienic products of course.
This is what I looked like then:
If you ignore my stiff scab lips, I actually think it's shitty with a hoodie, updo hair and then red lips on it!
Miska looked at my lips and said “But your lower lip is really beautiful! Is it ombre? ” I have used 4 different products only for the lower lip haha, may do a lip tutorial on this later when it is healed;)

A little bit in: gloMinerals Lip Liner (Moxie)

In the middle of the lips, up on the upper lip + to improve during the day - Pixi shea butter lip balm (Ripe raspberry)
I had to tell everyone at work that it's hard to smile as usual when you're stiff on the upper lip, so they would not think I'm the worst stramis haha.
It does not hurt at all to tattoo the lips I think, in some places in the beginning it stings a bit but in the end you are so numb (the anesthetic takes better the more holes you make in the skin) so then I was falling asleep.
During healing, it is a bit difficult, however, most people know what it is like to have dry lips, this is like a scab on the entire lips. It starts flaking on the 3rd day for me then on the 5th day it is usually ready-flaked. But now we only did the edges of the upper lip so the healing feels much better than the times before! :)
Can show a pictures after the healing later.
