Other terms you might hear with lip embroidery include ‘lip microblading treatment’, ‘lip blush’, or ‘semi-permanent lip tattoo’.

Contrary to the traditional tattoo procedure, the injected pigments from lip embroidery are within the top layer of the skin as opposed to deep into the lips. And this in a way, minimize any potential of infection. Plus, the concentrated pigments used are semi-permanent once instead of permanent ink.
