It’s a pleasure to welcome you to Rae Denman Medical Tattoo & Expert Witness Ltd. We offer a space for everyone who is negatively impacted by their visible difference to come and get advice, treatment, and aftercare in a safe and non-judgemental environment, as well as specialist training to be able to offer YOUR patients the same.
If you’re here to address a visible difference, you can be confident that this is the first step towards reinvigorated confidence and zest for getting on with your life. Whether your visible difference is large or small, able to be covered or not, and whatever age, sex, race, or distinction, you will be taken seriously and treated respectfully.
I combine my extensive training and body art skills with a warm, empathetic approach to help you feel at ease.
I specialise in the visible reduction of scarring and skin grafts.
After achieving a BA Hons in Graphic Design, I focused within the Medical Tattooing industry and attained a wealth of qualifications including a Diploma of Excellence in Cosmetic tattooing, Diploma in Professional MakeUp & Body painting, and Core Synchronism Lymphatic from The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics. I also developed my expertise further with specific courses at The British Association of Skin Camouflage and several courses focused on scarring, areola, camouflage, skin grafts, vitiligo and facial feature restoration.
Previously I worked in the NHS Burns and Plastics Department at Morriston Hospital and now work privately at The London Scar Clinic, Harley Street and in Reigate, Surrey.
