Aisling Mahon Tattoos new studio at Newbridge Retail Park

Aisling Mahon Tattoos specialises in Mastectomy tattoos

Speaking to KildareNow ahead of the launch this week, Aisling said that they are ‘very excited’ to be opening the studio ahead of the launch this week: “We’re opening in Newbridge Retail Park near Domino’s Pizza and Supervalu. We’ve very excited, and we’ve got two member of staff and we’ll also have guest spots available for tattoo artists.”

“About a year and a half ago I went over to Calgary in Canada to train under their leading Mastectomy and Areola Tattoo Artist and to become part of the A.R.T team (Artistic Restorative Tattoo), which is a team of tattoo artists all over the world. When women come into me it’s very emotional, they’re a bundle of nerves at the start because it’s a sensitive procedure, but after the session is over their heads are lifted higher and they’re more confident.  They feel empowered afterward and that makes me feel empowered.”

Aisling Mahon Tattoos is open from 9am tomorrow with balloons, treats and special offers available in studio.

With these two business women combined under the one roof their clients from across Ireland will be sure to receive the best in care.
