Areola Tattooing: Beyond the Basics

As artists, we learn the basics of drawing, shading, highlights, depth, and shape. But how do we take a standard 3D areola/nipple tattoo and make it really pop with hyper-realism detail and texture, unique for each client’s needs and desires? No two areolas are exactly the same. Each being as unique as we are people of diversity. Each artist develops their own style whether it is lips, brows, liner, or areola work. Kris will demonstrate how we can use our individual style and take areola tattooing Beyond the Basics.
