Nipple Areola Restorative
Natalia was trained by the world renowned areola restorative medical tattoo artist, Stacie-Rae Weir in the art of 3D nipple tattoo.
Whether you have lost your nipples due to breast cancer, or have scarring in the area from other surgeries, we will work with you to help restore the most realistic results.
A consult is required before booking so that we can assess the stage of healing you're at, and whether the skin can be safely tattooed. Typically, we recommend to wait roughly 1 year post surgery before your nipple medical tattoo appointment.
Bilateral nipples (both sides): $450
Unilateral nipples (one side): $300
Scar treatment: By consult, from $250+
** Prices include 2 sessions. In the first session we are building the foundation and laying the base of the tattoo while adding some detail. In the second session 6 - 8 weeks later, we add fine details, adjust the color as needed, and add the finishing touches!
We believe that you have already gone through enough of an emotional roller coaster in losing or suffering scarring on your nipples once.
This is why our unique medical tattooing techniques achieve PERMANENT results. No annual touch ups are required.
F.A.Q. about Areola Restorative Tattoo
How do you design how the final nipple will look?
Most clients do not have a photo of their nipples before their mastectomy, but if you do, we would be happy to do our best to recreate them!
I have scars in my areola area. How do I know when they can be tattooed and why I do have to wait?
Typically scars take roughly 10-12 months to fully settle. A good sign they are ready to tattoo is when they are completely white, with no traces of pink or red.
Do nipple tattoos hurt?
If you've lost your nipples due to mastectomy, then there is usually minimal sensation in the area we will be tattooing and pain is minimal. In this case, numbing is not usually required
What the aftercare like? Any downtime?
After your nipple tattoo, we will apply a Tagederm bandaid to protect the area, which is left on for 3-4 days.
