Nicole Deluna – Certified Areola Restorative Tattooing

Nicole is fully A.R.T. (Areola Restorative Tattoo) certified to provide you with the highest standard of Areola Restorative Tattoo services.

A Post Mastectomy tattoo artist, who has completed every U.K based course with NU medical and PC Academy. She has also completed her skill set with A.R.T training , a Canadian based certification for the highest quality of permanent 3d medical nipple tattoos currently available. These areola are more than circles and will not fade like those provided by NHS and semi permanent make-up artists. Using pigment designed solely for an immune compromised body, to give you the safest option in nipple restoration.

With over 20 years experience in the Tattoo industry covering all types of scars, skin types , textures and tones, her aim now is to promote body confidence through healing art.

Specialty Decorative Tattooing can offer you something to help you feel more yourself again. This can be used in place of areola restoration or maybe used as an additional complimentary procedure to disguise scars and radiation marks. Nicole is also very happy to cover scars with decorative tattoos to help you cover reminders of the past.

Nicole is happy to work with you to create a bespoke design, taking inspiration from designs of any style.


12 months postoperative is the safest amount of healing time before we can tattoo over various styles of scars and radiation damage or chemotherapy burns.

6-12 months postoperative may be considered for clients who do not have scars running directly through the area to be tattooed.
