3D Nipple/Areola Tattooing

3-D Nipple Tattooing & Areola Restoration in Bethesda by Nora Cooke



     Dr. Colgan is pleased to offer 3-D nipple tattooing and areola restoration by Nora Cooke.  3-D nipple tattooing uses shadows and highlights to restore a sense of depth and detail to the reconstructed breast.  Nora is a certified intradermal cosmetics technician and has over 14 years of experience as a permanent makeup artist.  She is a member of the SPCP - The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.

     Nora has added medical tattooing to her list of permanent makeup procedures using organic, non-toxic pigments.  She completed her 3-D nipple tattooing training in Florida with John Hashey’s Advanced School of Permanent Cosmetics.   John Hashey has been applying permanent makeup since 1977 and teaches students from all over the world.  Since 1998 his apprentice program has been the world leading Permanent Makeup Training and has produced some of the finest permanent makeup artists.   He is one of the true pioneers of the industry that continually develop medical grade procedures to include the first ever tattooing of the human cornea.  His areola reconstruction and scar camouflage techniques are the most advanced in the world and produce results that continually help radical mastectomy cancer survivors feel confident and as close to what their breast looked like prior to surgery as humanly possible.

     Nora’s goal is to work closely with each client to ensure that he or she achieves the best result -- realistic and natural looking.  Self-image is so critical to the patient’s sense of well-being.  This is the final step in their reconstruction journey and makes them feel whole again.
