I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that I waited to train with Gemma and Vikki. I have been looking at courses for a few years now and nothing was standing out to me. I only wanted hands on training you can’t learn this on line. You can learn theory on line but then you need the in person to really discuss all the information. I lost my mom to breast cancer 20 years ago and I was finally ready to give back. I always say when the student is ready the teacher will appear. I felt 100% confident after having trained with these ladies to work on clients. The steps they outline in creating an areola are wonderful to follow, easy not complicated and it really does make sense. I highly recommend this course. I only wish I had one more day with these ladies to ask a few more questions. But they have been amazing when I reached out after the in person training was complete. You are in the best training with Gemma and Vikki !

I did a recent training session with these wonderful ladies Gem and Vikki! Their knowledge was outstanding, very thorough and it was such a friendly and insightful session. I came away learning a lot more about what they do and all there is to it and how much of a difference it makes to people’s lives! TATA is Amazing. I highly recommend anyone to take this course, thank you guys xx

I had the most amazing training with these ladies , I can not recommend them enough . Live demos , real models , in depth hands on and theory . I left the course so confident I went straight out to perform this treatment , I did this course over a year ago and I al so busy in it . They have been there whenever I have needed advice . It was so inspirational , it’s one of my most favourite treatments to offer . I even had them back at my clinic this year to host them whilst they trained other students, i jumped on as a workshop , as they offer free on going workshop days for their students . I got so much value yet again from these ladies . Thankyou so much ❤️❤️

I was really nervous to try something different , dealing with clients that have had breast cancer and the thought of drawing a 3.D Areola when I’m terrible at drawing , but on the course we learnt so much about not only breast cancer but different types of operations they can have to . The procedure is explained and demonstrated in such a way , I got it first time . Gemma and Vikki have been really supportive throughout the training and even now I still give them a quick message asking for help . I would always recommend the Areola training academy to anyone , they are the best in the industry . It can be emotional but it feels amazing to beable to put a smile on these ladies faces ❤️

I trained with Gemma Bowers and Vikki Clark (TATA) in January 2023 and it was fantastic. I enjoyed myself so much that all I wanted to do was tattoo 3D nipples everyday for the rest of my life. I loved how when I was tattooing my live model I didn’t feel nervous and having Vikki sat beside me felt like I had a friend by my side. Both Gemma and Vikki were natural teachers and fun to learn with. I made the right choice booking with them and highly recommend it to anyone!

I trained with Gemma and Vikki in September and it was amazing! Not only are they both lovely people, they are also so so talented at what they do. The training day was really enjoyable, informative and I left feeling really confident. Not only that but their after support has been second to none too.

In my opinion they are the best at what they do and I’m so glad I chose to train with them!

I trained with TATA and can honestly say that the course I attended with Gemma & Vikki, had to have been one of the most engaging and fun courses I have ever attended.

What these two don’t know about areola tattoos is probably non existent! Amazing training and aftercare support and actually produces (in my opinion) THE BEST and most realistic mastectomy tattoos!

I recently trained in 3D Areola with Gem and Vikki and it was AMAZING!!!

I actually can’t believe they taught me how to draw and create a 3D Areola – outside of PMU, I cannot draw at all, and was apprehensive as to how much this might hinder me – but it didn’t!!!

They guided me, gave me endless support and encouragement and lots of tips and tricks and trouble shooting to help.

The whole experience was amazing from theory, practice and the demo to actually doing it myself.

It is such a rewarding and creative skill and art to have and do and I couldn’t recommend this course enough x
