The choice to have a tattoo removed must be made carefully. It's important to understand that while skin tattoos can be removed, the ink will never disappear completely. The only way to fully erase a tattoo is to re-create it on fresh skin. Some people may think that removing a lip tattoo will make them look thinner or give them a new smile but in reality it just makes them look unfinished.
Lip tattoos are very popular among women who like the idea of being able to customize their lips through color and design.
Because of the way the inner lip region heals, inner lip tattoos are most prone to disappear. An inner lip tattoo will only last a few years for many people. In certain situations, the tattoo may fade completely after only a few months. However, it's not uncommon for new tattoos to appear on the faded area of an old one.
Inner lip tattoos are visible through the skin's pigment layer called the dermis. So if you want your tattoo to be longer-lasting, then it should be done using ink that stays in the dermis (the deep part of the skin).
Outer lip tattoos don't go through the dermis, so they're less likely to fade over time. They also tend to be more durable because the ink is absorbed by blood vessels under the skin's surface. This method of healing makes outer lip tattoos last much longer than those on the inner lip.
Lip tattoos can be removed if you want to change your mind about them or if you get sick of them looking samey. But unless you know what you're doing it's best not to try and remove a lip tattoo yourself. The skin around a lip tattoo is very sensitive and removing it incorrectly could leave you with a scar instead.
Inner lip tattoos are more akin to what is often referred to as a tattoo. Lip tattoos of any kind should be regarded temporary. Because your mouth and lips heal and lose skin cells far faster than the rest of your body, your tattoo will likely fade and vanish within a few months to a few years. However, this can be altered by using permanent makeup techniques to create designs that last much longer than usual.
