Helen Aldous Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoos

I have been a professional artist for 25 years, working in the field of Tattooing since 2012. Since 2016 I has specialised in creating permanent 3D Nipple Tattoos for breast cancer survivors after mastectomy.

I have developed my own unique techniques which result in a permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo which won’t fade away or need retouching in the future. I create my 3D Nipple Tattoos using specialist permanent inks and methods which differ from the standard 2D semi-permanent nipples available on the NHS, utilising my artistic experience to create a realistic and long-lasting effect. This removes the cost and trauma of having to continue to visit hospital or clinic for top ups every few years, thereby enabling people to come to the end of their breast cancer journey and move forward with their life.

Mastectomy Tattoos

Since specialising in this delicate and important area, my practise has grown to include other areas of related paramedical Tattoo work. I also work with people who have had breast augmentation, breast enlargement or reduction or gender reassignment surgery {Top Surgery} in order to help them achieve the end result they are looking for and to feel confident and happy in their body. I can help to achieve symmetry, alter areola colours, enlarge or smooth areola and disguise and revise scars from surgery. I also create decorative mastectomy tattoos, utilising beautiful designs to cover or disguise scars from breast cancer surgery.

Qualified Medical Tattooist

I am the first person in the UK qualified both through a professional traditional tattoo apprenticeship and also in Medical Tattooing for Scars & Burns by an NHS approved training provider. This allows me to combine industry best practice with the craft of traditional tattoo to create both cover up body art tattoos and camouflage work for people who have scarring after surgery or trauma. I love using my artistic skills to help my clients recover after surgery and trauma.

Scar Camouflage and Scar Revision

I am fully qualified and licensed to work on scars and burns having completed training with an NHS recognised provider. I utilise a variety of techniques including MCA Micro Needling  and Mosaic Micropigmentation in order to improve and camouflage the appearance of burns and scars after surgery or trauma.

Examples of Medical Tattooing include…

  • Scalp Scar Camouflage.
  • Replicating the appearance of a missing body part. For example, fingernails after finger tip loss or 3D Nipples after mastectomy
  • Creating Permanent 3D Nipples after breast cancer and mastectomy surgery
  • Scar revision after breast augmentation or breast reduction
    Revision or camouflage of scars around the areola after breast surgery
  • Relaxing scars and helping them to re-pigment naturally using MCA Microneedling
  • Blending the appearance of scars into the surrounding skin
  • Relaxing burn scars so the skin is less distorted
  • Camouflaging areas of missing hair on the scalp, beard or moustache area
  • Scalp Micropigmentation SMP
  • Making thinning hair appear thicker
  • Camouflaging hair transplant scars
  • Creating decorative mastectomy tattoos to hide surgery scars on the breast
  • Helping indented [Atrophic] scars to fill in and become smoother
  • Enabling raised scars [Hypertrophic] to become smoother
  • Filling in pigment in areas where it has been lost due to trauma in order to camouflage the scar
  • Preparing a scar to receive a decorative cover up tattoo safely
  • Improving the appearance of stretch marks
  • Decorative Body Art Tattoos to cover scars.

This work enables me to build on my extensive experience of artistic tattooing on different types of skin and create both cover up body art tattoos and camouflage work for people who have scarring.
