About Areola Restoration
With meticulous attention to detail, the caring & skilled artists at DAELA Portland can create soft and hyper-realistic areolas, restoring a natural appearance to the breast. Our Paramedical Team includes Co-Founder Lina Anderson and our very talented master artist: Shonna Roberts.
This specialized tattooing technique is commonly sought by individuals who have undergone breast reconstruction or breast augmentation surgery. Areola restoration helps to recreate the color, shape, and texture of the areolas, enhancing the overall aesthetic outcome and providing a sense of wholeness.
Areola restoration tattoo can bring comfort and confidence to individuals on their journey of healing and self-acceptance. It is a beautiful testament to the power of art in restoring natural beauty and enhancing the lives of those who choose this procedure.
Why would you want areola tattoos? Many men and women who have had surgeries that leave them without areolas, feel like they are missing something. Imagine if you had no belly button? 3D areola restoration not only restores the look of your areolas, but this process can make you feel whole again.

Our Artists' Work
Does areola restoration tattoo hurt?
We are here for you.
There is sometimes no feeling after a mastectomy or top surgery. For those with a natural areola and nipple, there may be some pain.
During the areola restoration process, a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize discomfort.
- This helps to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable as possible for the client. While individual pain tolerance can vary, many people find the sensation to be relatively mild and manageable.
- It's important to note that the skin around the areola is delicate, and the tattooing technique used by skilled artists is designed to be gentle and precise. They will work with you to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. If you have any concerns about pain or discomfort, it's always a good idea to discuss them with your tattoo artist beforehand.
- Ultimately, the goal of areola restoration is to provide a positive and empowering experience for individuals seeking to restore the natural appearance of their breasts.
- If you'd like to read more, we have written a blog on the subject.
Can you match color to my existing areola?

Whether you're looking to match the color of your existing areola or create a new one, we have the expertise to meet your specific needs.

Can you darken or lighten my existing areola?
We have the ability to darken and enhance the color of an existing areola during the restoration tattoo process.
- If you desire a darker shade or want to achieve a more defined look, our skilled artists can work with you to achieve your desired outcome.
- We can reshape or make the areola larger to suit your preferences.
- While we cannot lighten the color or make the areola smaller through this process, we can camouflage scars on the breast.
- Our goal is to provide you with a natural and satisfying result that enhances your appearance.

Can areola restoration help camouflage scars?
Scar camouflage is a technique used to re-pigment scars and blend them with the surrounding skin color, making them less noticeable.
- In the case of areola restoration, we can use the existing color in the areola to re-pigment the scar, creating a more seamless and natural appearance.
- It's important to note that scar camouflage works best when the scar has darker coloration around it, as it allows for better blending.
- Our skilled artists are experienced in matching colors and carefully filling in the scar to achieve a harmonious result.
