Tattoo Holmfirth Yprkshire

Helen Aldous – Artistic & Medical Tattoo Holmfirth, Huddersfield West Yorkshire

I am an Artistic & Medical Tattooist based in Holmfirth, just outside Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. I work from my own private space, Secret Garden Tattoo Studio. The studio is quiet, clean, non intimidating and fully registered with Kirklees Council.

As far as I know I am the first person in the UK qualified both through a professional traditional Tattoo Apprenticeship and also in Medical Tattooing by an NHS approved training provider. Therefore, this allows me to combine industry best practice with the art and craft of traditional tattoo to create both custom body art tattoos and restorative tattoo work for people who have scarring after surgery or trauma. I love using my artistic skills to help my clients lead their best life.

Artistic & Decorative Body Art Tattoos

Holmfirth Tattooist Helen Aldous

Artistic Tattoos

Every tattoo I create is custom designed for the individual. I utilise my background as an artist & illustrator to ensure that you get a personalised design which is unique to you and will work well with your body.

If you have an idea of what you want, after a consultation to understand your needs, I can create a bespoke design based on your thoughts.

Mastectomy Tattoos By Helen Aldous

Mastectomy Tattoos

A mastectomy tattoo is a decorative artistic tattoo on the breast after mastectomy surgery. Designs can flatter the shape of the breast and cover or draw the eye away from any scarring as much as possible. If you have chosen to go flat, a mastectomy tattoo can be a powerful statement of reclamation. Mastectomy tattooing can really help to reclaim the body and heal mentally.

The design can also incorporate a realistic permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo if desired.

Medical Tattoo

Medical Tattoo is the use of tattoo based techniques in order to improve the appearance of the body after surgery or trauma. It involves techniques such as MCA Microneedling [Dry Tattooing] and Mosaic Micropigmentation in order to revise and camouflage scars. Medical Tattooing to improve scars can be done in conjunction with artistic tattoo techniques to recreate the appearance of a missing body part, for example 3D Nipples after mastectomy or missing fingernails after fingertip loss.

permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo by Helen Aldous

Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoos after Breast Cancer & Mastectomy

I specialise in creating Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoos for people who have lost theirs due to Breast Cancer & Mastectomy. The nipples I create are truly permanent and will not fade away or require top-ups, unlike semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo nipples. This frees my clients from the cost and trauma of having to regularly return for retouching work and enables them to put cancer behind them and move forward with their lives.

I have a dedicated website for my Permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo work which you can visit here.

Nipple Tattoos after Gender Reassignment [Top Surgery]

I work with people who have had gender reassignment surgery [Top Surgery FTM MTF ] to ensure that their new chest matches their gender and to minimise or camouflage any scarring which may result from failed nipple grafts.

My studio is a friendly and inclusive place where you are guaranteed respect, privacy and safety.

camouflaging self harm scars

Self Harm Scar Camouflage

The appearance of self harm scars can be helped in several ways. MCA Microneedling can help to smooth the appearance of the scars. White scars may be camouflaged with Mosaic Micropigmentation. Alternatively I can design a beautiful decorative tattoo to cover the area of self harm scars. Each case is different so please get in touch to discuss your individual needs.

SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

Both men and women can suffer distressing hair loss or thinning hair. Male pattern baldness can result in total loss of hair whilst visible scalp and receding temples and crown are common in women.

Scalp Micropigmentation {SMP or hair tattoo} implants tiny dots of pigment into the scalp to give the appearance of follicles. It makes the appearance of the scalp less obvious through thin hair and makes the remaining hair appear to be thicker and more dense. It can replicate the appearance of a closely shaved head when hair loss is total.

As a hair loss sufferer myself I understand the impact this can have on both women and men. I’m pleased to be able to offer this service in my studio in order to help people regain confidence.

Testimonials & Reviews

I cannot say enough about Helen and her work. I had an idea for my tattoo and gave her the briefest of briefs. She designed the most amazing tattoo for me. When I went to the studio, which is comfortable and exclusive, we were talking about where I should have the tattoo it was initially sized for my shoulder blade but we scaled it and it looked absolutely amazing as the centre piece of what is going to now be a half back piece. The detail is great and it looks almost 3D. I also have to say that when I compare the time spent on my tattoo with some other studios mine was done in a very reasonable time scale over 2 sittings. Basically I cannot praise Helen’s work enough, in fact my daughter wanted her first tattoo and Helen is the only person I would want to have do it.
