Tattoo Artist Creates 3-D Nipples for Breast Cancer Survivors

Tattoo Artist Creates 3-D Nipples for Breast Cancer Survivors

Ansley Ansley
Hey everyone, this is so freakin' cool I couldn't help sharing it when I stumbled across it.

One of the lesser known facts about breast cancer patients who've had mastectomies is the nipple is completely removed. A nipple isn't exactly something you can replace once it's gone, so an artist in Maryland has given up tattooing trademarked characters and taken on restoring the confidence these women previously had.

You can read the full article here. NSFW images

Basically, he creates a 3-D tattoo that resembles and matches the woman's complexion.

I think it's pretty amazing that a once taboo industry such as tattooing is making a huge stride in restoring the confidence of women who have to suffer through this terrible disease and I just really wanted to share this with you all! (He's done over 2,000 of these tattoos to date.) Vinnie Meyers is a hero in my eyes!

That is so cool thanks o much for sharing. Way back when my mother in law had a mastectomy on one of her breasts they didn't do the nipple tattoo's so she has a beautiful tattoo she had placed in the area where she had her breast.

thats very cool! and looks so real! .... but considering how much your breast change in size and shape as you age, i wonder what those will look like in a few years.....

My guess, is they would like a nipple that went through those same changes. Tattoos mostly change due to weight gain or rapid weight loss, a little stretching and natural pigment showing up would probably make them look even more real and they can always be touched up.

I've heard of this before! It's a great alternative to skin grafts! I have known two breast cancer survivors who have gotten tattoos instead of grafts.
