My name is Becca Fuller, I am the artist here at Babe Ink. I wanted to take a moment to share my story. When I first set out to become a cosmetic tattoo artist, I had no idea that paramedical tattoo services like scar camouflaging existed. The minute I learned of it I became obsessed with the idea of helping others camouflage their scars. I was in a traumatic car accident at the age of 12 that left me with scars from emergency surgeries. I was always self conscious of my scars, they are a daily reminder of a traumatic experience. At the time I began my career in cosmetic tattooing, there were no products on the market that aged nicely or ensured a correct match, making this service slightly taboo. I waited patiently and attended multiple classes just waiting for the perfect product. Well, I finally found it! I am so excited that I am able to camouflage and minimize our daily reminders of our traumas, or areas that make us feel self conscious.
Paramedical Tattooing FAQ for Scars & Stretch Marks
What is a Camouflage tattoo?
Camouflage tattoo is the process of tattooing skin discoloration using a skin tone ink or pigment to match the healthier part of the skin.
Who can undergo Camouflage Tattoo?
People with skin discoloration caused by stretch marks, light scars, hypopigmentation, and on case-to-case basis, vitiligo.
What is Nue Conceal?
Nue Conceal is the most innovative brand for Camouflage tattooing. We've incorporated the art of camouflage tattoos, the science of color theory, and the technology of color matching the skin.
How does Nue Conceal work?
Nue Conceal has a patented device that reads a person's skin tone. The numerical reading of the color space will then be submitted to the app via calibration; the app then gives accurate pigment suggestions. This process reduces the time spent in color matching to up to 30 seconds and ensures a seamless camouflage result while minimizing human error.
How long does the treatment last?
Nue Conceal could last anywhere between 1.5 to 5 years depending on the person's skin rejuvenation and activities. Our skin color changes over time. As we age, our body produces less melanin, the protein responsible for our skin color. This causes our skin to get lighter as we age. Hence, the need for future retouches will minimize the risk of uneven color and discoloration years later.
What is the cost?
The cost of your procedure will be determined by the size of the treatment area. The minimum scar session is $450 for a small scar. The price goes up based on the size of the scar.
