Permanent Cosmetics, Scar Camouflage, and Nipple Tattooing

Beth Fairchild, tattoo artist and current president of METAvivior, talks permanent cosmetics and scar and nipple tattooing.
Mar 20, 2018

Beth Fairchild was diagnosed with de novo metastatic breast cancer in 2014 at age 34. The diagnosis was a surprise to her because her mammogram results from the month before were negative and she had never had a lump in her breast. Beth was familiar with breast cancer though. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 44 and her paternal grandmother died from breast cancer at age 33.

An artist and tattoo professional, Beth and her husband own five tattoo studios. Her focus is on permanent cosmetics, scar camouflage and areola restoration for people diagnosed with breast cancer. Beth tattoos permanent cosmetics, such as eyebrows or eyeliner, as well as nipples and areolas for women who have had breast cancer surgery.

Listen to the podcast to hear Beth explain:

  • how to find a professional who can do permanent cosmetics

  • what scar camouflage is

  • how she approaches the nipple tattooing process

  • what nipple tattooing and areola restoration has done for her clients

Listen to Beth's podcast about the Serenity Project.
