Lip Tattoos are not for the faint of heart. You’ve probably seen a lot of tattoos in different parts of the body already, but did you know that there’s such thing as a lip tattoos as well? Some do it for fun with kinky words on the inner lip which is not visible unless you show it off, and others perhaps put it there because it’s an uncommon placement. Lip tattoo is not very unique, some tribes have already been tattooing their lips since ancient times. The Māori tribe from New Zealand for example, tattoo their faces including the lips as their personal identity as a Māori. They also have different meanings and call this art as “moko”. You will see an example in one of the pictures below, no moko are the same, every moko is unique.
