Areola & Nipple Tattooing
Providing the finishing touches that help you feel more confident and beautiful.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is working with breast cancer survivors. Jeanette Wirz, CAAM is a Board Certified Permanent Makeup Artist, Trainer, and state-licensed tattoo artist with 22 years of experience in her field.
3D Areola Restoration is a procedure for women and men who have lost one or both nipples through surgery or trauma. By using traditional tattooing techniques, the appearance of the nipple can be restored to a more natural appearance after mastectomy, breast reduction scars, or trauma. Areola Restoration can create an Areola after breast reconstruction minimizing the appearance of scars to restore the Areola to a more natural-looking color and shape.

Areola After care
Jeanette is the best! She performed some permanent makeup procedures that I love such as eyeliner and eyebrows and they turned out wonderfully. However, the procedure that made the biggest impact on my life was the 3D Areola Tattooing after breast reconstruction surgery following a double mastectomy. During the reconstruction process, I opted to not have new nipples created. This decision was reached primarily because I had seen a video online that showed an alternative to this procedure. The alternative was 3D Areola Tattoos. The results shown in the video were amazing. I found out that Jeanette performed this alternative and based on her prior work it was a go-to to have this done. I didn't hesitate for a minute because I knew Jeanette would do a fabulous job. And I was right - the 3D Areola Tattoos were awesome. Jeanette is a true professional with an artist's eye. She welcomed my input throughout the process to make sure I was happy with the end result. She was very patient and caring as she did her magic. There was very little pain during the procedure and she was checking in with me throughout to make sure that I was ok. I still marvel when I look in the mirror and see how natural this looks. She is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone looking for alternatives in breast construction. This was the best decision for me and I am extremely happy with the results.
Three years ago I had "that surgery" preceded by a lot of thought, a lot of research, a lot of prayers, and a lot of hope. My decision was based on being preemptive and preventative but so many twists and turns in the road made me a true survivor. Inner Circle, LeAnne Weaver Tillman, Laurie Riley, and Bettye Lynn Bellar Richert, once again, I cannot thank you enough for your love, care, commitment, and diligence! It is surreal to remember now the long, unexpected, and tenuous road on which you accompanied me. Kristina Kotseos O'Shaughnessy, Laura Futrell, and Jeanette Wirz thank you for using your gifts, talents, and expertise to treat and put me back together! What a great team of strong, competent women! Thank you again, Jeanette! You were awesome!
I Wish I Would have Done This Sooner!
I had Areola re-pigmentation after the Areola reduction procedure left me with peri-areolar scars and lightened Areolas which made me extremely self-conscious. Jeanette was wonderful! Very professional but also down-to-earth and made me feel very comfortable. She did a fantastic job of making my Areolas look normal again, and I can't say enough how much that improved my confidence and comfort in my own skin. I would highly recommend her!
Thank you so much, Jeanette! Marcie
Her talents are a true gift and I am grateful for her.
Following my experience with a bilateral mastectomy, I began my journey to find something to "complete" me. I met with Jeanette to discuss Areola tattoos. I was amazed at how this procedure would make me feel like a normal woman again. Jeanette was creative, helpful, and compassionate, all while remaining professional. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. This visit turned out to be the best ending to my cancer treatment. Since then, I have used Jeanette for my permanent eyeliner and Microblading. Her work is impeccable and second to none.
I couldn’t be more pleased with my 3D areola and 3D nipple tattoos. Jeanette is an amazing artist and person. Such great bedside manner and amazing with such great attention to detail! They are so realistic and look so real. Less than a week after I got the first part of the tattoos I had two doctor's appointments, they were both amazed and said that they were the best 3D nipple tattoos that they have ever seen. It has given me closure in my breast cancer journey after 5 years of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Jeanette Wirz is the best in the business in the Nashville area!! I recommend her and her staff for any and all services that they provide.
Thanks so much, Jeanette
The space is beautiful and relaxing as well! Would highly recommend!
Thank you, Jeanette!
