More confidence. Renewed optimism and motivation. The chance to focus on other areas of your life.
Specialist Medical Tattooing, Permanent Makeup & Skin Camouflage offers a light at the end of the tunnel if you’re struggling to cope with your visible difference, find it dominates your life and impacts on your confidence and mental well-being.
Your visible difference may be generic, from birth, due to injury, surgery, medical treatment, transgender surgery or self-harm. Whatever the reason, if it’s stopping you from living life to the full, it’s every reason to look at a solution.
For most patients, this is a journey. A medical, psychological, cosmetic, professional and social one. That’s because having a visible difference that causes you distress, can eat into every area of your life.
But it’s a positive journey. A course of treatments is preferred and there will be retouches and adaptations over time. I’ll be with you every step of the way; explaining the options and results you can expect, listening to your concerns, supporting you, providing you with the highest levels of quality care and offering you state-of-the art-treatments and expertise.
A different level of care
Based in conveniently located, state of the art specialist skin clinics, your surroundings will reflect the level of comfort and care you’ll receive. I understand patients may have suffered in silence for years, and taken considerable time and courage to take this brave step. Treating you with empathy, sensitivity and discretion, as both a Medical and Cosmetic professional, I operate to professional standards and use market-leading, break-through procedures and treatments that are the forefront of the industry.
At the heart of my service is a strong medical understanding of the body. Every person will react differently to treatments and therefore the consultation at the start of your journey will explore the options and results you can realistically expect.
A wide range of skin conditions will present at my clinic. I am passionate about exploring and trialing new treatment options, and with technology and research advancing all the time, I can help more people with a wider variety of challenging conditions.
Get closer to confidence
Specialist Medical Tattooing and Semi-permanent Makeup can reduce visible differences by inserting specific colours of pigment into the treatment area. The skin changes as we age, so must the pigment, so the treatment will need to be retouched in line with the natural changes to your skin.
My aftercare service is incredibly important to the success of your journey. Through check-ups and an ongoing relationship, I can learn how your skin reacts; revising and developing your treatment accordingly.
Through meticulously and expertly administered tattoo treatments, you can take that step closer to self-esteem, confidence and a life not dominated by your visible difference.

What my patients say...
“I wanted to thank you for that call and for sending this message, it played a part in my decision to admit myself to psychiatric care. Your in a unique position to help people in a vulnerable time in their life and I’m glad you had the moral tenacity to do so. A lot of others wouldn’t. I hope that more people in the world had an aptitude and attitude like you do and you helped me realize that my predicament was a cause of my problem and that getting to the root of the issue would be much more beneficial to me at this time. Thanks again for being such a great individual.”

As a specialist Medical Tattooist based in the South East of England, I have developed a reputation for scar camouflage and facial feature restoration in the field of Permanent Cosmetics, Medical Tattooing and Skin Camouflage.
I am a member of The British Association of Skin Camouflage and trained with them for temporary coverage of burns and scars and The Finishing Touches Group for Permanent Cosmetics and Medical Tattooing. Since then I have undertaken further specialist training with Nouveau Contour for brows and lips, and The Linda Paradis Group for tattoo removal.
I am founder of BAMT (The British Association of Medical Tattooing) which was driven by my concerns that the industry was both unregulated and too easily allowed vulnerable clients to progress through escalating fixations on procedures. Our goal is to promote ethics in aesthetics.
As well as the private sector, I led NHS clinics at the Burns and Plastics unit, Morriston Hospital, Swansea, specialising in nipple/areola tattooing and temporary camouflage cover of burns and scars. I now run private clinics from Harley Street Skin Clinic in Reigate, Surrey, The London Bridge Plastic Surgery in London, and The McIndoe Centre in East Grinstead.
I was awarded the 20 years of excellence Life Changing Procedure for my work with nipple areola tattooing.
I featured on ITV ‘This Morning with Lorraine Kelly’ performing hair stroke brows for a feature on anti-ageing alongside Dr Khan and Dr Devine.
I collaborated with The Katie Piper Foundation and The Telegraph to create a time-lapse video of myself applying Camouflage and Makeup on a burns survivor demonstrating the positive effects this has on her physical and mental wellbeing.
I am a consultant and stockist for Veil Cover Cream UK who have launched the 'Rae Denman Range' of 10 beautiful new shades of cover cream which I developed from years of experience and changing skin tones.
I'm delighted to have contributed towards a Research Paper with The Centre for Appearance Research - My face in someone else’s hands’: a qualitative study of medical tattooing in women with hair loss Psychology, Health & Medicine publication Feb 9, 2021
My career has exposed me to a wealth of experience in understanding and communicating with clientele from varied backgrounds and social circles, each with different needs and expectations.
I’m passionate about using my skill and precision with detail to offer a high-end service and truly care about helping each individual find confidence within their appearance.
