Kathy Griffin shocks fans with a dramatically swollen pout after getting her lips tattooed – Daily Mail
August 28, 2023
Kathy Griffin has shocked fans with a dramatically swollen put after getting her lips tattooed, with fans even likening her to Kylie Jenner.
The actress and comedian, 62, let her fans into the procedure room while undergoing a painful lip blushing procedure.
Kathy took to her YouTube channel to show fans the spectacular process in action in a short video titled ‘I GOT MY LIPS TATTOOED’, adding a semi-permanent tint of colour to her lips.
She donned a T-shirt with her face on it, accompanied with the caption ‘Officially-Uncancelled,’ despite telling fans: ‘OK, so first of all I’m trying to go under the radar’.
Kathy was not shying away from the cameras as soon as she stepped out of the doctor’s office, flaunting her plump lips to her friends, much to their bemusement.
Actress Kristen Johnston, 55, chimed in to express her disbelief: ‘What did you do? That’s not real!’
The comedian persisted: ‘I don’t think anybody will be able to tell’, after telling viewers that they ‘are going to go to the 4th of July parade’ despite the swelling leftover from her glamorous makeover.
Her husband Randy Bick was also not too impressed – the marketing executive let out an audible ‘sh*t’ when he saw his wife’s new lips, to which the star reassured: ‘It’s [only] a little swollen!’
Keen to continue with the surgical enhancements, she told fans: ‘Second of all, I’m going to get my eyebrows microbladed more because I didn’t do enough the last time. We’ll see’.
The video ended showing the star looking immaculate with her finally healed lips – now looking more naturally pouty than red and swollen.
The outspoken comedian elicited many criticisms from fans, although most were in awe of her transformation.
One fan took to her YouTube comments to say: ‘I was scared for you at first, but the end result looks amazing! You look beautiful, Kathy’.
A worried fan said: ‘The final result is great, but holy sh*t Kath, that first shot is giving Kylie Jenner’.
The star’s procedure comes after she underwent a successful vocal cord surgery in June to remedy the vocal issues she experienced after an oncologist removed half of her left lung in August 2021.
The stand-up has been open about her battle with lung cancer, telling Instagram said her throat is ‘a little scratchy today but I’m in good shape’, following the procedure.
In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last year, Kathy said the last time she was on the show she had lung cancer which required half of her left lung to be removed.
‘My voice got some damage,’ said the TV star. ‘But I’m fine, it doesn’t hurt… and the important thing is my boobs are still fabulous,’ she said as she shook her chest which made the audience cheer.
Kimmel, 55, commented that her new higher-pitched voice makes the star ‘funnier’ and asked, ‘Will eventually your vocal cords stretch and your voice will deepen again?’
Kathy responded, ‘I think it’ll get back to normal, but I’m not sure. I’m still working on it. I am funnier cause I think I sound non-threatening and demure. That’s my new angle’.
This comes after a difficult year-long recovery after revealing last August she was diagnosed with stage one lung cancer, despite never having smoked cigarettes.
‘I’m cancer-free. I don’t know why, I had a tumor, right? And I’ve never smoked, and it was in there for 10 years,’ the perplexed actress said.
