Before and Immediately After Lip Blushing
The first photo is right before my lip blushing tattoo, featuring my extremely dry, flaky, pale lips that practically disappear into my fair skin. The second photo is after the 2.5-hour tattooing session. Immediately after, my lips were super swollen, and felt numb for a few hours. I went straight home and decided to avoid looking in the mirror for the remainder of the day, put an ice pack on my lips, and applied Aquaphor as directed. By the next day, the swelling had almost completely disappeared and I was so excited to see the colour come to life.
