Inner Lip Tattoos

Inner lip tattoos are becoming more and more popular, not only with celebrities, but with the everyday person as well. They are the perfect place to get a tattoo that is discreet, especially if the phrase or image is extremely personal to you. However, simple designs suck as hearts and smiles tend to be extremely popular. An inner lip tattoo, although small, will typically cost more, because the mouth is one of the hardest places to tattoo. In addition, inner lip tattoos tend to fade within a year or two, and require touch ups if you want them to keep looking their best; because of this, some people consider the small image, that will rarely be seen, to not be worth the costs.

Inner lip tattoos tend to heal more quickly than other tattoos, but they are also at a higher risk for infections. You may face difficulty with activities such as brushing your teeth or eating with utensils without pain after getting one. Everyone has his or her own personal pain tolerance level. However, overall most people agree that the inner lip is one of the most painful areas to get a tattoo. This is sometimes balanced out, though, by how quickly one can be done, as large, intricate designs obviously don’t work well for the inner lip.
