Getting You back to You

3D Areola Nipple Tattoo

This is a permanent tattoo designed and tattooed to visually look like it is actually 3D.Most clients are tattooed on completely flat skin so the realism is created by many different colours and design techniques to make the nipple pop!


Areola Re-Pigmentation 

Tattooing to darken the areola/nipple. Some people suffer from a condition called Vitiligo, this is where the body melanin cells stop producing the colour of the surrounding skin.  This condition can leave white patches of skin which would benefit from an areola tattoo.

Questions you may be thinking about

When can I have my treatment after surgery?

We can usually tattoo post 6 months from surgery where the natural nipple was removed. We are able to create ultra realistic looking nipples with medical tattooing that can also tattoo over scars, and even surgical nipple reconstructions.

Will it hurt?

Generally the majority of clients do not feel much at all however, if you do find the sensation is too much, a topical anaesthetic can be applied. 

How many sessions do I need?

Two sessions are required which are 8 weeks apart. The first session gets the majority of ink in, whilst the second is there for tweaking and cementing the pigment further.

Can I choose what it will look like?

Of course you can! This is generally easier if you have a double tattoo to do and if your surgery was only on one breast then we make every effort to match your tattoo to the other nipple. Ladies are welcome to bring either their own before image or an already tattooed areola they have sourced.
