Kathy Griffin Revealed Her Shocking New Look After Getting Her Lips Tattooed
As her hilarious T-shirt suggests, comedian Kathy Griffin has been officially uncanceled — and she has the new lips to prove it.
On Aug. 24, the 62-year-old legendary comic shared a YouTube video titled, "I GOT MY LIPS TATOOED!," that provided a quick and funny behind-the-scenes of an aesthetic appointment in July at Vale of Shadows in Los Angeles for a few face enhancements.
"OK, so first of all, I'm trying to go under the radar," Kathy joked, showing off the self-portrait T-shirt with the words "Officially-Uncancelled," a possible reference to the 2017 incident where she received backlash for being photographed with a bloody replica of former President Donald Trump's head.
"Second of all, I'm going to get my eyebrows micro-bladed more because I didn't do enough last time, and I'm getting my lips tattooed, but they call it blushing? We'll see," Kathy included as she disappeared into the doctor's office.
After she entered the aesthetician's office, Kathy reclined on a black cushioned exam table to prepare for the micro-blading procedure to give her face a few perks like she's on the character creation screen of The Sims 4.
Then, Kathy showed herself with a white cream dressed around the edges of her lips before the practitioner asked, "You ready to not speak for three hours?"
Kathy hilariously responded, "Whaaaaaat?" just before a plastic film that possibly contained a numbing agent was placed over her mouth so she didn't feel pain during the procedure.
Then, the aesthetician used a tattoo gun to begin the procedure.
Fortunately, it cut away to Kathy with a bag of ice covering her brand-new blushed lips and a plastic film over her eyebrows for the following procedure.
According to Birdie.com, the lip blushing process will provide "long-lasting lip color, increased pigmentation for pale and aging lips, the ability to customize your lip shade, fuller-looking lips without the need for injectables or surgery, enhanced lip symmetry, and color correction for scars and uneven pigmentation."
Then Kathy went to show off her new lips to her loved ones, and the reactions were pretty funny. First, she came to her husband, marketing executive Randy Bick, singing, "I'm back from getting my lips tattooed!"
It scared the crap out of Randy before he apologized for his reaction. "It's a little swollen," Kathy explained.
Next, she showed off her new lips to her friend and 3rd Rock from the Sun alum, Kristen Johnston.
"I got my lips tattooed last night. I'm fucked. Look at me," Kathy said to visibly horrified Kristen.
"What did you do? That's not real," Kristen replied, mouth gaping open in shock.
Later, Kathy told the camera, "Well, Kristen thinks it's noticeable. But we're gonna go to the Fourth of July parade. I don't think anybody will be able to tell."
Then, "4 to 6 days later," Kathy revealed her fully recovered face from the micro-blading and blushing procedures, and, yes, the finished product was amazing!
