  • Areola-Nipple Tattooing

Areola-nipple tattooing is most widely known for helping the breast cancer and BRCA community in their healing journey after mastectomy surgery and breast reconstruction. Areola-nipple tattooing can also help the transgender & non-binary community in their transition journey after gender-affirming surgery.

Here at Paradise Cheltenham, our talented artists create 3D realistic nipple tattoos post surgery to recreate or improve the symmetry and visual appearance of the nipple-areola complex.

These tattoos play a vital part in the physical and emotional healing journey, boosting confidence and body positivity.

3D areola-nipple tattoos are suitable for reconstructing or enhancing the areola from multiple types of surgeries, including:

  • Breast enlargements
  • Breast Reconstruction Surgery
  • Breast Augmentation or Reduction
  • Cosmetic Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
  • Gender affirming / top surgeries
  • Breast Cancer Surgery (Lumpectomy)
  • Burns / Scars
  • Gynaecomastia surgery (male breast reduction)

Our artists here at Paradise Tattoo Studio use their extensive skill set, knowledge, and artistry from traditional tattooing to recreate beautifully realistic areola tattoos for all genders! Our clients love to write about their experience here at Paradise and how these treatments have positively impacted their lives. Read more about Nicki and Roxanna’s tattoo journey’s at Paradise.

Areola-nipple tattooing can be used to enhance natural nipples too; adding shape, increasing size, and boosting the colour. Heart shaped areola-nipple tattoos have also become a popular treatment, offering a fun alternative to natural enhancement treatments and a form of self-expression!


As a breast cancer survivor, areola-nipple tattooing can help you in your emotional and physical healing after mastectomy surgery.


After your gender affirming surgery, areola-nipple tattooing can be performed to help you in your transition journey.

Mastectomy Tattooing Alliance

The Mastectomy Tattooing Alliance is a registered charity founded by Tanya Buxton, and created to provide funding for mastectomy and areola-nipple tattoos for the breast cancer community.

The MTA’s primary focus is to make mastectomy and areola-nipple tattoos more affordable and widely available to survivors. Information about areola-nipple tattooing can be limited and inaccurate; the MTA wants to raise more awareness to these wonderful, life changing tattoos within the breast cancer community and medical field.
