Becky Adelaide Barker started her apprenticeship in traditional tattooing in 2008 in Birmingham UK. She then went on to be published in various magazines and work throughout the UK before setting up her own award winning studio Lumina in Malvern, Worcestershire.
Specialising in Colour tattooing, Becky added restorative tattooing to her skill set in early 2019.
Restorative tattooing can help anyone that has lost their original aesthetic feel empowered.
Tattoos have a long history of being used for healing, and all tattoos should be empowering.
Currently, the standard practice for any medical tattooing, is to use fading pigments designed for permanent makeup. This is absolutely not suitable for scar tissue, as the need for a yearly top up can create excess damage to already damaged skin. Becky uses only regulated and tested permanent tattoo ink for body art procedures.
Becky has been A.R.T certified since 2019. A.R.T is currently the only standard that exists in any kind of restorative tattooing. Becky also works with The Nipple Innovation Project, creating awareness and funding Nipple and areola tattooing for Those that have endured Breast Cancer.
There are a number of free clinics for both scar cover up tattoos, areola tattooing and eyebrow cosmetic tattooing for Breast Cancer Survivors running throughout the year.
