The technique of 3D or 4D areola / nipple tattooing (micropigmentation or areola re-pigmentation) provides realistic aesthetic results for women who've undergone breast reconstruction, breast lift or breast reduction surgery.

For many, it is so important to return their body back to the way it looked before cancer or surgery. Areola micropigmentation offers a sense of relief by providing the final punctuation to the end of their journey and returning a woman's identity, self-esteem, body image and relationships. 

The process isn't much different than any other kind of tattoo. The areola is drawn onto the woman's breast, matching as closely as possible to its partner. Colors are picked out to create the 3D/4D effect, topical anesthetic is applied and within one to two hours the work is complete. 


Tattoos can also be used for medical tattooing for a variety of conditions such as: 

Vitiligo Camouflage- Vitiligo is a dermatological condition characterized by patches of skin discoloration and pigment destruction. Permanent makeup can help cover up and fill-in these light patches.


Alopecia/Hairline- Alopecia is the state of lacking hair where it would usually grow. Alopecia effect 50% of males, known as receding hairline. It is also a common side effect of face lift surgery.  We can recreate hair follicles or hair -strokes to fill in the areas missing hair. 

Scar/Stretch Mark Camouflage- The process of camouflaging scars or stretch marks is a simple process of blending the discolored area with your natural pigment colors. The final result is a beautiful and dramatically reduces the appearance or completely covers them up.  This procedure has been used for surgical scars, burn scars, face lift scars, accident scars, stretch marks and more.


Cosmetic tattooing are facial cosmetic tattoos also known as micropigmentation, micropigment implantation, microblading,  and dermagraphics where permanent pigmentation is implanted in the dermal layer of the skin to produce a result that resembles makeup to areas such as lips, eyebrows and eye lids.

Lip Liner/Color- It can appear to change the size and shape of the lips, the color of the lips and helps prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin. Achieve a natural or dramatic look. 

Eyebrows- Mimics the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness can achieve this with a powdered look or individual hair strokes. 

Eyeliner- Mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes with the implantation in the lash line or mimic eyeliner on the lid of the eye. A natural or bold look can be created.

Mucosal Color- The art of adding color to the inner mucosal tissue just below the eye. Adds depth and vibrancy, complimenting you natural eye color. 


Manual microblading is a Permanent tattoo that is done on the eyebrows and involves tiny blades, instead of a tattoo machine, to implant pigment under your skin to replicate the individual hairs of the eyebrow.


You could have lost your eyebrows due to alopecia or cancer treatment, have ultra-light brows, need a little help with arches, thinning brows or just want fuller brows.


Microblading creates the appearance of naturally full eyebrows. Colors can be customized to match your natural brow, current hair color or several shades can be used to give multi-dimensional and natural look.


Color usually lasts 16-18 months and may or may not need touch ups in between.


A process in which pigment is applied directly to the scalp using a multitude of different needle sizes to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles. This is considered an advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation. 

The pigment is placed in the dermal layer of the skin with a variety of shades and colors to replicate the size, shape and density of the hair follicles achieving a natural shaved look to the scalp. This usually takes 2-3 sessions to create he most natural appearance possible.
