Permanent makeup is something that has been around for a number of years now. However, the trend of fuller lips and brows are tempting some people to go to extremes in their quest for brows that are on point.

In the past people have been sucking on bottles trying to achieve a fuller pout. Cosmopolitan beauty editors are considering this a possible upshot of a certain almost legal reality TV star’s infamous pout.

Now people are going for actual lip liner tattoos. These can last for between 8 and 10 years. Years!

Last week a Cosmopolitan Australia beauty editor had the outline of her lips tattooed to make them appear fuller in order to avoid getting fillers. The salon she visited offer a “Kiss Me Lip Tint Tattoo” treatment, but they are also apparently well known for their brow tattoo treatments.

In order to get the tattoo to complement her natural lip colour, the tattooist blended together three different shades of pink.

The editor was very pleased with her “subtle results”. Despite the minor scabbing that occurs whenever someone gets a fresh tattoo.

Not only does the treatment last for almost a decade, but the cost is nothing to laugh at either. Initially the tattoo will cost over €800 with touch-ups, every 3 to 5 years, costing an additional €230.

We were having some serious 90s flashbacks at the thought of intense lip-liner adventures but some of these after photos do prove subtlety can be achieved.

However, as is the same when people consider any type of tattoo, they are being encouraged to consider all precautions because skin health is a top priority.
