Hi, I'm FACECRAFTER, Judy, and I tattoo areolas and nipples too. And I do it for no charge. I cover the cost of supplies, do not charge for my time, and so you do not have to worry about insurance. Earleen and I are happy to do this work. We get more out of it, in terms of gratefulness and satisfaction, than money can provide.
I wanted to add that tattoo color should not fade to an undesireable color such as orange, no matter what you do to it. If it is good color. there is a lot of color out there that is NOT good color, and will fade over tiem to an undesireable color.
The color that you see in the 'pot' is not what the color will be when it is settled in. The permanent makeup artist? that you refer to letting you the color together, may be making you feel good, but that is not the color you will see when you are done... Close, but not exactly, because the skin is a filter for the color, and will modify the color, sometimes greatly if the skin is scarred. The artist knows and adjusts for this modification. I am not slamming the artist who did this, I am just making others aware that this is not something that should be done, other than to check perhaps that you are in the right color family.
In my case, I use about 5 colors in doing an areola and nipple. I am an fine artist first, than a permanent makeup artist. the colors gradually go from darker to lighter, and so there is no color coaching that would be meaningful. Hope this helps. Good luck with all your treatments, I myself am not up to nipple tatts yet, I am a year away from that in my reconstruction journey. But I wish you all the luck with yours!! I am so glad you are at the end !!
P.S. Feel free to PM me anytime to discuss your situation.
Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There's a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in. JUDY
