Which service is right for you?

Areola Neutralization / color change is for when you still have your natural nipple, but have color loss in the areola, a dark or light areola that you want color changed, or have scars around the areola due to breast augmentation or gender confirmation surgery.

3D Areola tattooing addresses the loss of the areola AND nipple which occurred through surgery or trauma. For this service description and pricing information please click the button below

What is Areola Correction, Areola color change and dark areola neutralization?

Areola Correction, sometimes called nipple color change, dark areola neutralization, areola color correction (for colorless or discolored areolas), areola alignment (for occasions of uneven nipples), or nipple tattoo is a non-surgical procedure where a specialized tattoo is used to add color to the areola where color is missing due to scars, age, and other reasons OR to change the color of the existing areola to a more pink color or a darker color depending on your desired outcome. This procedure uses a variety of advanced techniques to create a natural looking final result.

For many who have breast augmentation scars, as well anyone who is in the process of undergoing gender confirmation surgery, areola corrective tattooing is the final step in their reconstruction journey. It is a way for many women and men, to recover physically and emotionally from their breast reconstruction scars. This procedure may also be performed to benefit anyone who has any irregularity in their areola color, shape, or size for any reason.

Our procedure is permanent. We use traditional tattoo pigments and traditional machines in our application process. This means you don’t experience the typical fading you see with tattooing techniques used by the surgeon’s office. Your procedure will be performed by an experienced tattoo artist- not by a support staff member who may have very little tattoo training.

We will guide you through the entire process from beginning to end. Every Areola Corrective Tattoo procedure is a unique process. You are unique and we will use a trained eye to interpret what will be necessary to accomplish the best result. Variables such as scar patterns, skin thickness, scar tissue, placement, and prior medical history come into play.

The benefits of Areola Corrective Tattooing are extensive. We are able to restore missing color, blend out scars, and in many cases adjust size or color when desired. We mix a color that is complementary to your skin tone and match the areola size to the size of your breast/chest; this provides the most natural color tone and realistic result.

The types of Areola Corrective Tattooing we offer are color restoration, color change, dark color neutralization, size adjustments, scar cover up, scar camouflage, symmetry adjustment, and decorative heart shaped areolas.

What should I expect during my appointment?

In just under 3 hours we’ll complete:

A Full consultation – prior to the start of your procedure your goals and expectations will be discussed to help decide which treatment is best for your desired outcome. The artist will mix colors to create your custom pigment blend.

Mapping and pre-drawing are used to aid in selecting your customized areola shape and color.

High-Quality Pigments after drawing an outline of the areola, the artist uses a specialized tattoo instrument to transfer pigment into the skin

Advanced micropigmentation techniques are used in order to create a natural looking result.

How long does it last?

Like any other tattoo, some fading of pigment is possible. However, areola tattoos can often last a lifetime as the tattoo is less exposed to the sun.

What’s the different between 3D Areola Tattooing and Areola Corrective Tattoos?

While both services are used to treat issues with areola coloration there are several important differences between the two techniques:

  • 3D areola tattooing is designed to help men and women who have lost their areolas AND nipples due to surgery or trauma. Areola Corrective Tattooing adds color to or adjusts the color of your already existing areolas and nipples. This service can be used to add color to faded areolas or those that have lost their border due to aging.

  • Areola Corrective Tattooing can be used to neutralize the dark tones often seen in the areola due to hormonal changes resulting from pregnancy.

  • Though not a “correction” this service can also be used to shift the naturally dark areola color of some ethnicities to a more pink tone when that is your desired look.

  • Both services utilize our “Fusion Artistry Application Technique” effectively implant ink into the skin and scar tissue of of the breast/areola while resulting in minimal trauma.

  • Areola Corrective Tattoos can address some scars that are immediately around the areola but if the correction is due to breast augmentation surgery, some scars such as the lower part of the anchor or the stick of the lollipop will not be included in the treatment. In these cases our Breast Augmentation Corrective Package might better meet your needs. Contact the studio directly for more information.

  • Most areola tattoos use permanent makeup pigments (which are intentionally designed to fade!) so they need touch ups at least every 3 years, while we use high quality tattoo pigments which are manufactured to last a lifetime.

  • Both services are fully customizable for your preferences.

  • Choose this service if you desire an areola shape change to decorative, heart-shaped areolas.
