What is a mastectomy tattoo?
A mastectomy tattoo is a decorative artistic tattoo on the breast after mastectomy surgery. After surgery you may be left with scarring or a breast shape which you aren’t comfortable with. Mastectomy tattooing can really help to reclaim the body and heal mentally.
It’s possible to create designs which flatter the shape of the breast and cover or draw the eye away from any scarring as much as possible. If you have chosen to go flat, a mastectomy tattoo can be a powerful statement of reclamation.
The design can also incorporate a realistic permanent 3D Nipple Tattoo if desired.
A mastectomy tattoo can be a beautiful, empowering and artistic addition to your body.

This lovely lady was very self conscious of the scarring to her breast after mastectomy and reconstruction. She also had discolouration of her skin due to radiation treatment and felt self conscious wearing lower necklines. We designed the tattoo together to incorporate images which referenced family members and had meaning for her. The design draws the eye away from the scars and covers the discolouration. Im glad to report she is now happy to wear lower necklines without feeling worried about her scars.
