Thank you so much for stopping by the HYVE Buzz Blog on Paramedical and Restorative Tattoo! Today's article is non-exhaustive overview to give you a look into the healing and meaningful world and work of Paramedical Tattooing. Join us as we explore what paramedical tattooing is, why it is so crucial, and how to get started.

What is Paramedical Tattooing?
Paramedical tattooing focuses on the restoration of the skin post medical treatment. It is a critical step in the healing journey of the survivors of cancer, accident, illness, trauma, and injury. Paramedical tattooing is also known as restorative tattooing as it restores the healthy appearance of the skin, and further helps to restore the survivors emotional and mental well-being.  “Para”-medical is broken down literally to mean “alongside” medical treatments. As Paramedical tattoo artists we can be an intimate part of our client’s physical and emotional healing process. 

Most Common Paramedical Treatments:

  • Surgical Scar Camouflage 
  • Areola Restoration Tattoo
  • Acne and Stretch Mark Camouflage 
  • Skin Graft & Self-Harm Scar Camouflage/Reclamation
  • Burn & Radiation Scar Camouflage & Recovery

  • Paramedical Before and After


    The tragic truth about Paramedical tattooing:
    The tragic truth about paramedical tattooing is that it is meant to go alongside medical treatments, but this is not always the case. There is a gap between the medical community that performs life-saving surgeries and the paramedical community that performs restorative paramedical tattoo services.

    It is the people in most need of paramedical tattooing are most devastatingly affected by this gap. Many patients are grateful to have their life and health after surgery or medical treatment, but are still left feeling incomplete with fractured self image and esteem with visible reminders of their illness and/or trauma. As well-trained paramedical tattoo artists, our hands the have restorative healing power to give back an areola lost to mastectomy or reduce a facial scar helping to eliminate a daily reminder of domestic violence. ⁣

    “In sickness and in health, I believe that when you look good, you really do feel better. Giving people confidence in their own skin is what drives me to be the best, and to always keep learning in the medical and cosmetic tattoo industry.” - Jody Stoski
