Tattoos to cover up a Tummy Tuck Scar; why not try a Nude Tattoo!

You probably got a tummy tuck to look and feel more confident. Not even thinking about what that surgery will leave behind.... that SCAR!

Getting a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck can make a big difference in the way you look and feel, but the reality is that a complete tummy tuck is going to leave some scars, which can bring forth a whole set of new insecurities TT scars in most instances are going to be located in the mid to lower abdomen. A vertical incision and an incision around the belly button (from hip to hip) are also necessary in some cases. These scars can be rather long and severe, depending on the situation.

The extent of your tummy tuck scars is going to depend on how much skin is removed during surgery, the technique used to perform the surgery, the surgeon’s experience, and the health of your skin and its ability to heal.

While there are many options to get a tattoo design to cover up your scar, a simpler solution is a tattoo cover-up that matches your skin tone.

Medical Camouflage for stretch marks and scars is a tattooing method in which we camouflage scars and stretch marks with different color flesh tone pigments, its purpose is to disguise the area that darker than your skin tone and is missing pigment or color.

What do I wear for my session?

we've also taken the guesswork out of that!! The last thing you need to do is worry about what to wear

What will happen during the procedure?

The tattoo technician will use an electronic device that stimulates the skin’s natural healing process. Multiple pigment blends are injected into the skin to create a tonal variance of your natural color.

Easier aftercare procedure

After the session, make sure you limit your sun exposure. Although a camouflage tattoo lasts longer, it also suffers from the harmful effects of the sun. You wouldn’t want the tattoo’s color to fade quicker.

It is a tattoo so it will be permanent. With that being said just as traditional tattoos fade this will too.

But remember as we age our skin thins and the fading of the camouflage tattoo works out well as it slowly fades and our skin thins.
