Is it painful to get a permanent lip tattoo?
Tattooing is the introduction of dye under the skin using needles. Does it hurt if you accidentally prick yourself with needle? You may experience the same sensations during the procedure, considering that the skin on the lips is much more sensitive, and the process normally takes two hours. But modern technologies and medications make lip tattooing less painful. Firstly, lip tattooing can be done with a special machine or by hand. If the procedure is done by hand, the pain is not so strong, but the time of the procedure increases. There are plenty of anaesthetics, but they are not commonly used. Injections which have sufficiently strong anesthetic effects can cause the swelling of the lips and can negatively effect the final result.
