The Risks of Getting Inner Lip Tattoos
Inner Lip Tattoos Will Fade
While tattoos are typically permanent, inner lip tattoos are not. The mucosal cells in your mouth are constantly renewing and shedding, much more than any other area of your body.
As a result, there is no guarantee of your tattoo lasting. It typically fades over time and only lasts a few weeks.
Another risk of inner lip tattoos is that the ink from the tattoo rubs against the gums.
This can result in the gums eroding, eventually exposing the roots of the teeth. If this occurs, you will need to see a dentist to alleviate symptoms.
Limited Design Options
An inner lip tattoo can’t be super intricate and detailed for a number of reasons. The first reason is that the area itself is way too small to fit bigger designs. Therefore, it’s nearly impossible to add much detail.
Another reason for this is because the ink will just bleed and turn into a blob. Also, inner lip tattoos are not easy to do. You don’t always have a choice of font when you’re getting it on your inner lip.
