Curved Magnums are a Favorite for Breast Tattooing


Curved Magnums are one of my favorite needles to incorporate for breast tattooing. The magnum puts in color efficiently and softly.

 In the video, Im about finished with this areola and the last step is to add what I call a "layover" color.  It's typically a wash of a color or a pure color that helps blend my layers together.

In the video you will see 3 curved magnum movements/techniques 

  • Circles/Ovals - softly layering with a light touch working up to the edges
  • Back/Forth - Use needles to  softly layer pixels with a light touch that allows you to move back and forth on the skin
  • On the Side - With a curved movement shade the nipple focusing more pressure for a darker base and lighter pressure as you lift off creating the gradient shade.

Other needles such as a 3RL/S work great  for more added texture and precision.

What Can I do for Breast Cancer Month?

We all like to help and this is one way to reinforce your relationship with referring doctors and also a way to reach potential new referral sources.

Donating a procedure on behalf of the doctor or other business puts them in good light and you as well. 

Here's some verbiage you can use on a gift certificate that the doctor can give to a patient per their discretion:


A special gift 

 On behalf of  Dr. XXXXXXX

Your Name, Permanent Cosmetic Expert, offers you an Areola Tattoo procedure.  

 The permanent cosmetic restoration phase is the final step after breast reconstruction. The natural appearance of the  restorative tattooing procedure brings back the shape and color of the areola complex. 

This is simple and the certificates can be given to the doctors or business of your choice.
