Depending on your skin, health and if you come for touchup refreshers, your tattoo will last from 2-5 years.
Here are some factors will cause your semi-permanent tattoo to fade faster:

  • Oily skin
  • Retinol or Vitamin C
  • Iron deficiency
  • Sun exposure
  • Exfoliants
  • Exposure to salt water

It is slightly uncomfortable but completely bearable. The tattooing process lasts about an hour.

Goldline Beauty uses an excessive amount of numbing and our technique is extremely gentle. If you are nervous about pain, you may take 1-2 Tylenol 30 minutes before your appointment.

DO NOT take Advil or drink a coffee before your appointment. Coffee and Advil will cause you to bleed lots and also make you more sensitive during the procedure.

Yes, however, on the first session we will have to color correct your lips to cancel out the cool tones.

This means the initial color we tattoo MUST be orange! If we are to tattoo any other color you risk darkening your lips further or having absolutely no results at all.

When healed at 6 weeks, most if not all of the darkness in your lips will be covered and your lips will have a nudey-pink even tone. Note that results cannot be guaranteed and lightening or evening out dark lips may take a few sessions.

If you are unsure if you have dark or cool toned lips you can send Goldline Beauty a picture of your lips in natural light to confirm. Lips too dark or thick will be rejected so please be sure to email pictures if your lips are extremely dark grey or black in color.

You may NOT have this procedure if :

  • You are under 18
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have been on Accutane within the past year
  • Have HIV or Hepatitis or any other infectious or viral diseases
  • Undergoing Chemotherapy
  • You are Epileptic
  • You are taking medications that may affect how your skin responds to blood clotting and healing.
  • You develop infections easily
  • If your previous tattoo is too dark or thick (please email Goldline Beauty at a photo for coverups)

Please send Goldline Beauty pictures of your previous tattoo to confirm that Chloe or Jamie is able to do a coverup.
