Permanent Makeup Artists as well as Tattoo Artists, are working with plastic surgeons to create the realistic effects of 3-D areola tattooing. Here, at Beau Institute, we offer this specialized training and prepare these artists to enter into this most rewarding extension of their career.
Why has the 3-D areola tattooing become more in demand? There are a few developments that have increased this demand. Most significant and disturbing is the growing number of breast cancers being diagnosed. It is staggering and the blessing is we are seeing so many lives saved by today’s medicine. Another factor is the increased use of radiation. This often compromises the breast tissue and can prevent the option of a nipple graft. Also, many survivors just say they didn’t want to go through another surgical procedure and simply opt for the 3-D areola tattoo. Many women feel a grafted nipple could show through their clothing if they were not wearing a bra. They enjoy going without a bra since they truly don’t need one. Lastly, the reconstructive breast surgeons are seeking artists to accommodate their patients and compliment their skillful and beautiful surgeries.
Combined, these make for an exciting career, filled with gratification. Creating the 3-D effect, which includes mimicking Montgomery Glands and the creation and protrusion of a nipple is just an amazing effect. Our clients tell us they feel familiar, once again, and their breasts look so real and natural. They express to us how they feel more confident and more feminine.
Since we are a training institute, with ongoing classes, we DO NOT CHARGE FOR AREOLA TATTOOING. We also find many women that were reconstructed years ago just never completed their journey with areola tattooing. They had just had it and couldn’t bring themselves to do one more thing. Insurance may have changed, surgeons have moved or retired and they would have to pay out-of-pocket for this procedure. It gives us great pleasure to be able to offer this completion at no charge.
