A Method, A Movement, A Mission
A METHOD - A.R.T. Pioneered the first artistic approach to Areola Restoration back in 2011 when the standard was a pink circle with a brown circle in the middle
A MOVEMENT - We began to share this method with tattoo professionals around the world in an effort to raise standards in paramedical artistry
A MISSION - knowing how it feels to have 'botched' nipple tattoos, our divine purpose is to help survivors love their body more by helping artists increase their skill.
Welcome to A.R.T.
A.R.T. Founder Stacie-Rae knows alot about drawing, and alot about tattooing scars, so when cancer came into her life she welcomed the change in career focus. Art-School Educated and Award-Winning already, she was ready for a new professional challenge.
They say 'teach what you know' - and after having my own nipple tattoos botched by a nipple tattoo trainer, I realized the actual impact on mental health of poorly executed areola tattoos.
A.R.T. has helped to revolutionize the world of Paramedical Artistry. I have pioneered new innovations and products to help breast cancer tattooing progress, because I have been there myself, motivated by my personal experience.
Where I Come From:
When I heard about Otzi's discovery in 1992 I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of this ancient and sacred Art Form. I was already tattooed and hanging around the local shop, drawing flash. I went to art school then started a 1:1 apprenticeship with a good old-school tattooer.
I had already won awards for tattoos and my realism sketches, been featured in lots of media and even judged at conventions when cancer came into my world and changed my entire career focus! I realized I could finally use my skills for "good" instead of "evil"
So I set about to learning everything I could about areola tattooing and apply everything I already knew about tattooing scars so long.
We take care of our clients from scar revision to wholeness and even scar coverup tattoos.
If the surgeon is the mechanic, we do the body work!
Our focus is on wholeness and closure:
Temporary Areola Tattoos for Breast Cancer Survivors, Previvors, top surgery and more!
Now you can try on a new NAC and see what colors work best on your skin tone and play around with placement!
