When can I get an areola tattoo?
If your areola tattoo will be placed over scar tissue, you must wait until the scar has completely matured, which can take several months, or even years, depending upon your individual situation. Scars are generally considered to be mature when they have lost their red color and are no longer hard, itchy or tender.
Does it hurt?
No. Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before the process begins. It is normal to experience some degree of pressure or scratching during the treatment.
