In April I travelled down to Haywards Heath to take part in a two day masterclass focussing on Areola and Nipple Tattooing.
I trained with Finishing Touches Group who are the main Medical Tattooing training provider for the NHS in the UK.
The trainer, Kelly Forshaw Smith is a lovely lady who is a fountain of knowledge on Medical Tattooing. I learnt some great new techniques around Nipple and Areola Tattooing which I can add to my current skills. I also worked on some ladies who had scars from their reconstructive surgery.
I used MCA Microneedling on scars on the breast and DIEP Flap reconstruction scars on the stomach to help relax and flatten the scars. One lady had a tummy scar which was very tight and uncomfortable, so the MCA Microneedling will help that to relax.
We had an interesting time trialling a new range of skin camouflage pigments which will be released soon. The new colours were a fabulous match for the skin and I’m really looking forward to them coming onto the market for use. MCA is a great start to blending scars away but skin camouflage pigments can be the finishing touch. As many of my 3D Nipple Tattoo clients have extensive scars from reconstructive surgery after mastectomy I’m always looking for new ways to help.
So all in all, an enjoyable and enlightening two days after which I have a new qualification in Medical Areola Tattooing.
