Most people don't think of tattooing and cancer. But there are many ways cosmetic tattooing can help restore what was before.
Areola restoration and 3d nipple are most common. But eyebrows, eyeliner, eyelash enhancement, Lip color, Scar revision via micro needling and or camouflage color, micro needling to restore damaged skin, SMP (hair follicle simulation) Can all be done with tattooing techniques to restore what has been lost and give back self-confidence.
Nikki Thompson started tattooing in 1991 and by 1995 opened Nikki's Tattoo Studio in Charlotte NC. At the time, this was Charlotte's first female owned and operated tattoo studio in Charlotte, and Nikki was the only female tattoo artist for 8 years!
Nikki does provide body art tattoos but in 2003 she added cosmetic services like eyebrow, eyeliner, full lip, and areola restoration, then in 2005, micro needling and in 2018 SMP. Her main specialty is scarring cover and repair by camouflage or cover with a tattoo.
