Restorative Nipple and Areola Tattooing
Using proper needle configurations and color that has been made to replicate natural skin tones provide realistic areolas . Clients will have two sessions the first being the foundation of color and the second about 10 weeks later to refine and highlight. As in all tattoos there will be slight redness and swelling but this will subside in about 2 to 4 weeks while it heals.
Restorative nipple and areola tattooing is not just about a desired look but also about closure. It is the last step in a battle and brings out the ability for a woman to feel feminine and complete once again. They have survived and now can celebrate life to its fullest
Hair Loss is inevitable. Many men and women begin to loose their hair at an earlier age due to genetics, stress, medical side effect from a condition or disease. There are many types of hair loss but there is a treatment. SMP or scalp micro-pigmentation is a two to three step process that gives back the desired cosmetic look of having fuller thicker hair without having to have surgical procedures. SMP also works well with patients that have undergone hair transplants or other treatments as an option to mask the scars created from these treatments. Hair loss can be damaging to the self esteem and the technique of SMP has rebuilt many peoples confidence from filling in the smallest thinning patch to recreating an entire “ 5 o'clock” shadow on the head recreating a shaved full head of hair.
Semi-permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, is a form of temporary cosmetic tattooing which allows you to have long-lasting eyeliner and lip colour as well as being able to shape and contour your eyebrows. The procedure involves tiny particles of pigment being placed beneath the surface of the skin, much like a tattoo. This pigment will stay in the skin for a number of years, gradually breaking down and fading with time, although the longevity of the results will depend on your age and skin type.
The procedure aims to make eyebrows look perfect and natural. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure. This method is also known as eyebrow embroidery, etching, or feathering. Microblading is a manual deposition of pigments under the top layer of the skin using a special blade. The technique is ideal for anyone looking to enhance their eyebrows with a natural look regardless of the amount of hair present.
3D Nipple Restoration
& Semi-Permanent Makeup
I have been a traditional tattoo artist for 20+ yrs. I have studied art, skin types and tones which I feel has led me to the practice of areola restoration and 3D nipple tattooing. I was compelled to help a friend that had battled cancer and a breast reconstructive surgery find her triumph.
My main reason for getting involved with 3D nipple and areola restoration was because I was working with a woman who has since became a friend. She was diagnosed with cancer and went through dark times fighting her cancer. She won the battle but lost many things including her life partner...somehow the stress of her disease was too powerful for this person to handle. I saw how she was affected, her family was affected and how her life turned upside down. We met while I was helping her design a mastectomy cover up tattoo I saw how the surgeons left her body after the reconstruction surgery in a state of scars and I knew then I could help survivors just like this woman, regain their confidence and femininity back. I was deeply moved by the emotional experience and feel at this point in my life this may be the reason I began tattooing so many years ago.
Steven grew up between SoCal and Phoenix, where he graduated High School. He then left to answer a deeper calling and joined the US Army. After a time in the Army he returned home to find his new passion in body modification. He traveled around for a bit picking up little tricks of the trade through TX, NM, LA, and setting roots in FL for a few. Florida is where I truly grew and started becoming a success in the industry under the guidance of Casey “Dragon” Loftus and the crew of Arty Joe’s Skin City,
Then furthered my growth in the industry with the mentoring of Allen Hope of TAT2U, who taught me some well needed people skills. Being a West Coast kid coming up I was drawn back to SoCal to further my learning and growing. After a visit to Las Vegas I knew this was the spot for me, so I moved to Vegas and got settled in with the Diversity Tattoo Family where I have been for years with more years to come. I enjoy tattooing Black and Grey, Portraits, Bio Mechanical, Neo Traditional and Cover Up’s, I also still do piercings (where it all began).
