Dermatologist 's  Response
it is possible to have tattoo again and change the color
but ur lip color after each treatment will be more darker.
u need to consult dermatologist for better option.
if u have any white spot then skin grafting give much better result then tattoo.

Vitiligo on the lips.Tatooing may not give the best results over a period of time .Plastic surgery may be a better option depending on the extent of the vitiligo.Even skin grafting may not give the best results.
