Brazilian Stretch Marks & Scar Camouflage Masterclasses


Tattooing historically has been used for body art but in recent years it’s application has been noted for the amazing results it brings on covering all types of scars and pigmentation issues on the skin.

Scars, stretch marks etc can have a serious impact on someone’s self-esteem. This treatment can literally change someone’s life.

Our Trainers

Our trainers stem from the beginnings of this amazing new, improved technique for skin tattoo camouflage. This Brazilian stretch marks tattoo camouflage treatment was pioneered by Roldopho Torres in Brazil. He has shared his knowledge with several students, some of which will be training you. Zena Bratcher, the Director of Ink Illusions, has been fortune to have been able to bring this from Brazil and the USA to the UK for the first time. Have a read below on bios of our trainers.

Jayd Hernandez

Jayd Hernandez UK training

Jayd is the owner of Studio Conceal in Arizona and is one of few camouflage tattoo artists and trainers in the USA. Having been trained by three different pioneers of Scar + Brazilian Stretch Marks Tattoo Camouflage, Jade is able to share her knowledge from 4 different perspectives, including her own. She has been trained by the original guru himself Rodolpho Torres from Brazil, the well-known Brazilian artist Fernanda Jaffre, and Alicia Shapiro from the USA. Jayd also consults with a colleague who has been doing scar camouflage since the 1950’s who has been instrumental in enabling Jade to experiment and perfect her own techniques which she will share with you on this training course. There is nobody who blends inks like Jayd other than her students!

Gabriel Renaud (3.10.1990 – 17.4.20)

We were so shocked and sad to hear of Gabriel’s passing on April 17th 2020. He was a talented artist and trainer and we thank him for the knowledge he shared. He was such a positive, kind man. RIP Gabriel, you will be sadly missed 🙁

Gabriel was one of the first artists, emerging from Brazil, to pioneer the new treatments for stretch marks & scar camouflage, as well as a new, revolutionary treatment for dark under eye bag treatment. He was trained by the guru Roldopho Torres, also from Brazil, and travelled all over the world teaching his skills.
