Every procedure we offer has the ability to change our client’s life, but the one that can make the biggest impact is 3D Areola Reconstruction. 1 in 8 women that live in the USA will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. These women have gone through an incredible journey already; being able to give them their nipple back is remarkably rewarding for both artist and client.
With 3D Areola Reconstruction, the artist is able to create the illusion of a real, 3D areola and nipple on skin that is actually completely flat. This is what we here at Girlz Ink refer to as the “illusion of protrusion!” The illusion is created through a custom mix of pigments that are hyper-realistically applied to produce a hyper-realistic result.
This advanced procedure requires a more artistic eye compared to other PMU procedures. We need to be able to accurately place highlights, shadows, and Montgomery glands in order to deliver the most realistic result possible.
Those that want 3D Areola Reconstruction may have had breast augmentation surgery, a myectomy, or simply want to redefine their areola. Regardless of the reason it’s being requested, areola reconstruction is a special and tremendous honor.
If you’re interested in adding this service to your menu we recommend checking out the 3D Areola Course by Hayley Shortridge-Gabriel, available for purchase on the Academy website as well as on the store with the option bundle a kit! We are also offering 3 day hands on training for Areola Restorative Tattoo with Stacie-Rae Weir. For more information about this hands-on class email us [email protected]!
Remember: practice, practice, practice! 3D Areolas are tough, but well worth the effort and learning curve. Stay safe and happy tattooing!
