Permanent make-up, cosmetic tattooing, micropigmentation, these are all terms used to describe the placement of pigment just below the surface of your skin (epidermis). Juli, a licensed professional tattoo artist with nearly 40 years of experience, places the health and comfort of her clients above all else. She is a Massachusetts licensed esthetician as well as one of the original board members of the Alliance of Professional Tattooists (APT) and receives referrals from Plastic Surgeons throughout New England.
Restorative micropigmentation is a term used to describe tattooing that hides scars and visually works at recreating a natural skin tone that has been lost because of injury or surgery. The most widely used procedure is nipple/areola restoration, where a client who has lost one or both breasts because of mastectomy and surgical reconstruction can opt to have the illusional color of the nipple/areola placed on the breast mound. This is sometimes known as a 3-D effect because the illusion is quite remarkable.
