Dark Lip Neutralization

"Dark Lip Neutralization" is a permanent lip tattoo procedure for both men and women with melanin-rich skin. It is a special procedure in which artists must use advanced color theory techniques in order to neutralize, and even out darker areas of the lips. This procedure requires a very specific method of color theory application, specific pigments to be used, and also a particular shading technique in order for the tattoo procedure to be successful. When performed correctly, the tattoo can bring a beautiful result to the lips of those who wish to neutralize and lighten them.
