3D Nipple Tattoos, Areola Restoration & Mastectomy Tattoos | Holmfirth, Yorkshire UK

Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoos

I have been a professional artist for 25 years, working in the field of Tattooing since 2012. Since 2016 I have 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. I utilise 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.

Medical Tattooist Yorkshire

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 Areola, Scars & Burns by an NHS approved training provider.

This allows me to combine industry best practice with the art & craft of traditional tattoo to create 3D Nipple Tattoos, areola restoration, cover up body art tattoos and camouflage work for people who have scarring after surgery or trauma.

I have developed my own unique NiPiNK® Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo Technique, which combines the craft of Traditional Tattoo with Medical Micropigmentation & Artistic Methods to produce a new standard of Nipple Tattoo which lasts a lifetime.

I love using my artistic skills to empower my clients to recover and live their best lives.

Scalp Micropigmentation {SMP} Hair Loss Treatment for Women

Scalp Micropigmentation Hair Loss Treatment for Women

Women can often suffer distressing hair loss or thinning hair. This can commonly happen after cancer treatment and chemo. When hair grows back it may not be as thick as it was. Visible scalp and receding temples and crown are common. Medication, stress and hormonal imbalance can also take its toll.

Scalp Micropigmentation {SMP or hair tattoo} implants tiny dots of pigment into the scalp to give the appearance of follicles. It makes the appearance of the scalp less obvious through the hair and makes the hair appear to be thicker and more dense.

Whilst many Scalp Micropigmentation services are aimed at men, as a hair loss sufferer myself I understand the impact this can have on women. I’m pleased to be able to offer this service in my studio in order to help women regain confidence after their medical treatment.

Ways in which Scalp Micropigmentation {SMP} may help women include
