Is A Post-Breast-Cancer Tattoo For You?
Mastectomy tattoo artists understand that women want to take back control after going through the process of removing breast tissue to combat cancer. Whether you chose to have reconstructive surgery and want to add an areola tattoo, or would prefer to cover a surgical scar with a design of your choosing, breast cancer tattoos are a great way to take back your power. Paramedical tattoos are suitable for most post-operative skin types, and the design is developed in close collaboration with each client. Areola pigmentation tattoos can also be done on individuals who have not underwent a mastectomy or reconstructive surgery, but would simply like to deepen the natural hue or change the colour of their areolas for personal aesthetic reasons.
What is an Areola Pigmentation Tattoo?
An areola pigmentation tattoo is a 3D nipple tattoo that echoes the shape and colour of a naturally occuring areola and nipple. Breast cancer survivors who choose to undergo reconstructive surgery often prefer to add an areola tattoo for a more ‘finished’ look once their surgical scars have healed. These specialised tattoos are placed and designed to look as natural as possible, taking design cues from the skin tone and shape of each person’s breasts individually. It is an art form that takes practice, and at Precision Beauty we are proud to be able to offer this specialised service to brave breast cancer survivors.

Considering Mastectomy Scar Tattoos?
Mastectomy scar tattoos are another way to go post-op. Decorative mastectomy tattoos have become very popular in recent years, as cancer survivors who chose to forgo reconstruction find ways to reclaim their bodies once the dust has settled. This includes examples like the very popular breast cancer butterfly tattoo, floral patterning, literary quotes and tribal designs, but it can really be anything you’d like. When it comes to radical mastectomy tattoos, we like to tell our clients the sky’s the limit. This is the one place where the choice should be yours. Bring your design ideas and let’s see how we can make it a beautiful reality.
How does a mastectomy tattoo procedure work?
First a private one-on-one consultation is held in a calm, professional environment. Once you decide to move forward the next step is design and balance. Because the actual tattoo-ing procedure starts, a potent numbing cream is applied which will make the process virtually painless. Part of the package is detailed aftercare instructions and ointments.
