WHAT ARE VELVET LIPS?
Velvet lips is a cosmetic tattoo adding colour to the lips to give definition and enhance the lips! Velvet lips can also colour correct skin pigmentation and symmetry of the lips. This is a minimal pain treatment that lasts 1-2 years. Colour is evenly applied throughout the lips and there is no harsh outline. Just gloss and go!!
