3D Nipple & Areola Tattoo

  • Are you are a breast cancer survivor who has undergone a mastectomy and reconstruction?   
    Let me help you heal by restoring the beauty of your natural-looking breasts with realistic 3D Nipple / Areola tattooing.


  • Have you had top surgery that has left you with scars, or without areolas? Do you still have your areolas  but they are not the colour and shape you want them to be?
    Let me help you be the person on the outside that you are on the inside.


  • Have you had breast surgery that has left you with scars, or do you simply want to enhance the shape and colour of your areolas?
    Let me help you feel better about what you see when you look in the mirror so that you can feel more confident in your own skin.



3D Nipple & Areola - "The Illusion of Protrusion"!

By carefully selecting the right pigment colours, I can mimic an existing nipple and areola (if present), add more colour to a pale nipple / areola, or increase the size of a small areola.

Treatment involves an initial session followed by a retouch 6-8 weeks later to check how the first treatment has healed and to make any necessary adjustments. Some patients may need a third visit to achieve the best result.

If you have had breast reconstruction or other type of breast surgery and don't yet feel "complete", or if your existing areolas have lost colour or are smaller than you'd like them to be, book your free no-obligation consultation,  or email or call me, and we can have a chat about what's involved in having a 3D nipple / areola tattoo.

3D Nipple & Areola Tattoo Treatment options

To make this treatment accessible to as many people as possible, I offer the following options:

Option 1 - "The Gift"

I will donate my day off once a month to provide this amazing treatment to those who may not have the funds to pay for it themselves . 

All I ask is that clients pay a small non-refundable booking fee of £75  to secure their appointment. 

If they wish, they may make an anonymous donation into the pink donation box in the clinic. This donation will then be used for the next special person, providing needles, pigments and other equipment necessary for the procedure.


If you would like to be considered for "The Gift" treatment, please contact me in confidence via the button below, letting me know more about yourself, including:

  • Why you would like to be considered for "The Gift"

  • Have you been referred by your surgeon or oncologist?

  • What type of breast reconstruction surgery you have had (e.g. single DIEP) 

  • The date of your last surgery

  • The name of the hospital where you had your surgery

  • Any other useful information to support your application

Option 2 - Private Insurance

I am delighted to announce that I am now a BUPA recognised provider for Areola Micropigmentation (provider number 30028561)

BUPA requires that you be referred to me by a BUPA recognised consultant or surgeon. They will not accept direct G.P referrals.

(Your G.P may however refer you to a consultant or surgeon  in the first instance and they in turn should refer you to me).

BEFORE making an appointment for treatment with me, please contact your insurer to check that your insurance policy covers you for "Micropigmentation (tattooing) of nipple areola complex", procedure code B3592. (Even if it doesn't show in your policy documentation, they may allow treatment on a discretionary basis, so do still contact them).

Your insurer will provide you with a pre-authorisation code which you will need to share with me.

If you are insured with a provider other than BUPA, do contact them to ask if they will provide cover for you. Most were not accepting new "recognised provider" applicants when I approached them but advised me that they may still be prepared to offer you cover on a discretionary basis. (Let them know I am a BUPA recognised provider).

Option 3 - Paying client

This option is for clients who prefer not to wait for an available "Gift" appointment and / or who do not have appropriate private healthcare insurance.


With this option, you are able to choose an appointment during normal clinic hours, subject to availability. (Note this pricing is for post-mastectomy areola tattooing; see price list for other treatments)

Single Unilateral 3D Tattoo                          £299

Double Bilateral 3D Tattoo                          £499 

 Price includes retouch session

(See Price List for full areola pricing) 


The desired effect is usually achieved within two sessions. 

digital areola design

I'm passionate about creating the best artwork I can for you which is why I take time to plan your treatment in advance.


Using photos I will ask you to send me, I will create a digital design and share this with you ahead of your appointment so that you can consider the shape and colour you would like your new nipple & areola to be. This allows me to have a clearer idea of the best colours to swatch on your skin when you come in for your treatment as well as how much (or little) detail you would like me to include in the design.
