Women have been coloring their lips since ancient times, and there hasn't been any innovation in the lip cosmetics industry for awhile.
All of that is now changing, thanks to lip tattoos. Of course celebrities have been quick to adopt the trend, pioneered by Violent Lips. The temporary appliques have been popular around the reality TV and pop music set; the Kardashian sisters and Snooki are fans, as well as artists like Kelly Rowland, Keyshia Cole and Jessie J.
The patterns can be simple, like sparkling metallics, to patterns like bold checkerboards and graphic animal prints. Violent Lips tattoos can also display short messages like "hello" and "xoxo."
