NEW! The Perfect set (6x 5ml) to create stunning Areolas. Specially selected by Nipple Tattoo expert Lucy Thompson
Dark Redwood: Dark Redwood is useful for darker skin Fitzpatrick (FP) 5-6. But one drop of it can be used along with mid tones to slightly darken. For example, for a FP-2 skin type. Delicious Toffee with 1 drop of DR can create a lovely contrasting tone. If working with a FP-3 and I need a warm but not too dark contrasting tone, I would use Love Grit with one drop of DR to deepen the intensity.
Delicious Toffee: DT is a very versatile pigment and can be used for the mid tone or contrasting tone depending on your client. It can be lightened to use on the areola section, or pure, it can be deepened with either contrasting colour DR or HC. It can be mixed with Nude Invisible to give a washed-out kind of faded areola colour. Or White Wonderland can be added to lift to a nice pale and light skin tone..
Hot Chocolate: Hot Chocolate is a fantastic contrasting tone suitable for FP1-3. But can be used on other skin tones too, it’s not limited to this scale. Hot Chocolate can be diluted to different strengths to create contrast between the varying skin tones. It may be used neat and unmixed for a FP-3. However, for a FP-2 mix with DT 50/50. For a FP-1 you can mix with 2 drops of Hot Chocolate to 8 drops White Wonderland.
Love Grit: Love Grit is fantastic to add finer details within the actual tip of the nipple. It can be used alongside darker contrasting colours to create different levels and tones of deep warm reds for shadows, or it can be used as a drop in Nude Invisible to help deepen the pale cool pink that needs a little pick-me-up. It can also be lightened with White Wonderland.
Nude Invisible: Nude invisible is just a stunningly cool pale pink which I use often on the majority of my 3D nipple tattoos. It heals to a perfect soft colour that can be built on or diluted to create a near see through illusion of a nipple. Fitzpatrick 1-2 natural nipples are generally soft in appearance and it can be hard to recreate that sometimes. Adding White Wonderland may help.
White Wonderful: This is used mainly to lighten other colours or mixes. A must have in this kit.
I am a huge advocate for patient safety when it comes to post mastectomy tattooing and have taken big steps in my career to improve the standards of medical tattoos on behalf of the breast cancer community after seeing how losing a nipple affected my own auntie post mastectomy. Patient safety alongside longevity of the tattoo is ultimately what is most important when offering this specialist service. I wanted to ensure all risks were kept minimal, with the REACH regulations due to change, i knew I had to make changes. After using this set of colours for over a year and assessing healed results with client’s feedback, I am pleased to present to you this set of essential pigments for creating the perfect 3D Nipple Tattoo.
