FAQ: Frequently asked questions about cosmetic tattooing
What is an areola tattoo? An areola tattoo is a nipple tattoo designed to recreate a realistic looking nipple after a mastectomy or to brighten a dull nipple.
Leane understands the complexities of creating realistic work to ensure each client retains their individuality. Her training and commitment to her work ensure each client is catered for uniquely and comes away with a natural-looking areola to boost her confidence and appreciation for her body.
What is the tattooing process? The tattooing process begins with measuring up for the placement and size of the areola in consultation with the client. Colours are matched to the existing areola or are chosen following the Fitzpatrick skin type. The inking process then begins using a machine to implant pigment into the skin. The initial appointment takes around 2 hours.
What is the healing process? Healing time varies between clients, however it is recommended the area is covered with clear cling film for a week then left to dry naturally. Specific instructions are provided on the day of the procedure.
Are touch-up’s required? A touch-up is scheduled 8-weeks post treatment. This allows time for the ink to settle before additional work.
Will it hurt? Leane strives to make the tattooing process is as comfortable as possible and can use a topical numbing cream for some procedures.
Other cosmetic tattooing
Natural-looking brows are created using a soft pixilated colouring technique. The process begins with a pre-draw to ensure the client is happy with the look. The brow style, design and colour are selected in consultation prior to the cosmetic tattooing procedure.
This cosmetic tattoing service is designed to softly enhance the lip line and give a dusting of natural-looking colour.

I asked Leane why she did what she did.
That this was her answer:
“My motivation to create beautiful areoles comes from personal experience. My twin sister had breast cancer at 25 and passed away just after our 27th birthday. She had a rare form which resulted in a total mastectomy and passed before she could have any reconstruction. That was 30 years ago and treatment and patient care has changed in leaps and bounds. To be able to have breast reconstruction is amazing and then be able to finish that journey off with 2 tiny but significant tattoos. I am honoured I can help someone feel better about themselves with 2 tiny tattoos.”Leane Francis | Beauty By The Bay
