Medical Tattoo Artists

The most commonly known type of medical tattooing is nipple and areola regimentation as the final stage of breast reconstruction following breast cancer. However, skilled medical tattoo artists can also help with scar camouflage, repigmentation after skin problems during cancer treatment, mastectomy area tattoos, and permanent makeup to replace eyebrows thinned by chemotherapy. Permanent eyeliner and lipliner are also often performed to help women with their daily makeup routines.

Medical tattooing is a relatively new field which combines the aesthetic practice of tattooing with medical applications. It is also referred to as micropigmentation, paramedical tattooing, and permanent makeup.
