Body modification has become increasingly mainstream over the last couple of decades. Approximately 21% of Americans have at least one tattoo, compared to less than 6% in the 1930’s. There are about 21,000 tattoo shops open in the US right now, with one new tattoo shop opening every day. One new trend in body modification is lip tattoos. Although this temporary tattoo trend may seem convenient or funny, lip tattoos have extra complications that you should consider before rushing out to get inked.
