Inner lip tattoos are a bit of oddity as far as tattoos go. Most people who get tattoos are looking for a beautiful artistic design that holds some sort of special meaning or significance for that, something that’s going to last forever. Inner lip tattoos don’t.
Have you ever bit or burned your lip and noticed just how fast it healed? Well the same rules apply when you get something inked. It takes a while, sure, but inner lip tattoos fade much faster than traditional tattoos and are pretty much guaranteed not to last.
There’s something to be said about being able to get a non-permanent tattoo though. You can get anything tattooed on your inner lip without worrying about possibly having to cover it up in the future or disliking it later on in life. In retrospect, it’s the perfect place to get a current boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s name tattooed.
That being said, since inner lip tattoos are such a new phenomenon, we feel obligated to warn you that inner lip tattoos run a much higher chance of infection than regular tattoos. Your mouth is full of bacteria, which means the healing process for an inner lip tattoo is going to be a major hassle. If you’re not someone who’s going to be incredibly meticulous, thorough and health conscious after getting the tattoo, don’t do it. You think getting an infection on your thigh is bad? Having one inside your mouth is much worse.
If you’re going to get an inner lip tattoo, make sure to rinse and clean your mouth thoroughly just before getting it in order to greatly reduce your chances of infection. You also should kiss or make out with anyone until the tattoo is fully healed.
Now that the disclaimers are out of the way, please enjoy our inner lip tattoo gallery!
