Lip Blushing
Cosmetic Tattooing for your Lips

Star, Lip Blushing Santa Cruz

A combination of both beauty and creativity.

Lip blush is a semi-permanent tattoo that can add a flush of natural-looking color to the lips, enhance the shape, correct asymmetry, and make lips appear fuller. 

Anna, our highly skilled cosmetic tattoo artist at Estrella Collective in Santa Cruz, California, is renowned for her expertise in lip blushing. This sought-after technique aims to enhance the natural appearance of your lips with a soft, tinted effect. During the procedure, Anna utilizes a specialized tattooing device to deposit semi-permanent pigment into the topmost layers of your lips, customizing the color and intensity to suit your preferences.

Following the lip blushing procedure, it’s important to allow ample healing time, typically ranging from 3-4 days to 2 weeks. During this period, you may experience dryness, mild swelling, texture and tenderness.  Until the lips naturally exfoliate themselves, the color may initially appear more intense than the desired outcome. Rest assured, Anna will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing.

In order to maintain the desired results, it’s crucial to follow proper post-procedure care. Anna will guide you through this process, which involves keeping your lips clean, moisturized, and protected from direct sunlight. Avoiding spicy foods, excessive moisture, and activities like swimming or sauna during the initial healing phase is recommended.


Over time, the lip blushing color will settle, and any initial intensity will fade to reveal the natural-looking result you desire. Depending on individual factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and sun exposure, the longevity of lip blushing typically ranges from 1 to 3 years. Anna may suggest periodic touch-up sessions, scheduled 4 to 8 weeks after the initial procedure, to perfect the shape and color and ensure long-lasting satisfaction.

When it comes to cosmetic tattooing in Santa Cruz, Anna at Estrella Collective is known for her exceptional skill and dedication to providing the best possible experience. Feel confident in consulting with her to discuss your specific needs, receive personalized advice, and achieve the most beautiful lip blushing results!
