Angela Gates | Best Practice of Soft Natural Lips


What: Lips are unique from any other area of the body. Unlike tattooing the skin on the rest of the body where what you see is basically what you get, lips can be tricky and fickle. Special considerations need to be made for the color, tone, temperature, and skin type. In this seminar we will cover best practices for tattooing lips to achieve the most natural results. We will cover basic and advanced techniques.

 Topics include:
  • Lip Anatomy
  • Lip Temperature
  • Choosing the proper color
  • Beyond Borders: Safely working past the vermillion border
  • Correcting Asymmetry
  • Creating soft natural colors
  • Working with Dark Lips
  • Soft edges
  • Creating depth
  • Numbing
  • Stretching
  • Aftercare
  • Live lip demo
