Areola Tattooing

A gratifying and profitable aesthetic healing service to add to your menu

There are few procedures that you can include in your spa menu that will deliver the elated joy, gratification, and revenue that post-mastectomy, areola tattooing will bring you. This life-changing procedure, for both women and men, brings back familiarity and confidence that was soulfully missing from their lives.

Most often, there are tears shed when they first see the mirror reflecting this familiarity, but they are tears of sheer joy. The first seconds they may appear stunned and suddenly their surgical scars are no longer their focus. Instead, these amazing nipples and areolas are boasting with realism and staring back at them.

These moments are overwhelming for everyone in the room. It may be a husband, wife, friend, mother, or sister, possibly one being a survivor, sharing this intimate moment of relief. Their loved one has returned, appearing whole. You have become part of her aesthetic healing and there is nothing that compares to this.

This tattoo can represent a variety of emotions for these clients. It may be a finality, the representation of their femininity or masculinity being returned, or a celebratory end to the long and arduous journey they have traveled to get to this point. You have truly changed a life!

However, we have merely scratched the surface of this long-term relationship between a practitioner and the client. Breasts and Brows become synonymous when offering areola tattooing. This is due to the lack of density in their brows and lashes, following chemotherapy. Undoubtedly, this client will ask the practitioner to tattoo their eyebrows.

Tattooing eyebrows will lead to a lash enhancement (tattooing between eyelashes) in order to establish a color balance between the brows and the eyes. A woman may even ask for some color added to her lips.

Every time this client sees the practitioner, they see someone that has helped restore them to new normalcy and they are feeling much better about themselves. They will share stories of how they now shower at the gym and undress in front of their significant other.

Areola tattooing is an art form and is not as complicated as it appears. It is created by simultaneous contrast (dark against light). With a seasoned instructor, a practitioner can perform these magnificent procedures in just two days, following primary training.

The question that comes up, again and again, is why is areola tattooing considered an Advanced Class with Advanced Techniques? That is because there is much to learn regarding the various cancers. In the consultation, they must be asked about their original diagnosis and the practitioner needs to understand them.

Did this client arrive with medical clearance? This is a must in NJ and other states but adds a layer of safety for any practitioner. Did this person have radiation, chemotherapy? Did the radiation cause a contracture? (This is where the burn from the radiation pulled the skin and repositioned the implant).
