Areola Tattooing

Raquel has been featured in Allure Magazine for her realistic Nipple/areola tattoo work. Here is what she has to say about this type of procedure:

"I feel very fortunate to be able to help restore confidence to women after their reconstruction; my background in arts allows me to do realistic work.

Q & A about the procedure:

How long does the procedure take? Depending on the skin and scar tissue, it takes between 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Can I have the tattoo after radiation? Yes, although in some cases, tattooing cannot be done if the skin is too thin.

Would it hurt? There may be minimal discomfort after the procedure; topical lidocaine can be used to minimize that.

Is it safe? Yes, like any other procedure, there is always a minimal risk of infection; this is mostly caused when the post-procedure instructions are not followed. 

Single-use disposable sterile needles and disposable cups for pigments are used along with strict aseptic protocols for hand washing, and gloves are worn at all times. In general, tattoos are safe.

Can the implant be punctured during the procedure? Not at all, 

The needle is only entering the dermis layer of the skin less than 1 mm. 

This is why finding a tattoo artist who understands fundamental body art tattooing and has experience in the medical tattooing field.
