Exceptional Care to Help Restore Your Confidence

Nipple & Areola Tattoo Procedure

Nipple tattooing is the last step of many patients' reconstruction journeys. This non-invasive process involves permanently embedding organic pigment into the skin to recreate the appearance of a natural nipple and areola.

The tattoo artist begins the process with a pre-treatment consultation to discuss your vision and the look you desire. After designing the desired size and shape of the nipple, the artist will begin tattooing realistic detail that will blend seamlessly with your natural skin tone.

Our experienced artist partner possesses the skill, experience, and dedication required to deliver superior results to each and every patient at her shop. With our extensive gallery of happy patients' before and after images, you will see how 3D nipple tattooing can restore your confidence and help you look and feel like your best self.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a 3D nipple tattoo really three-dimensional?

Though a tattoo of any kind can't physically add size or projection, a high-quality 3D nipple tattoo can provide a remarkable level of realism and dimension. Our artist partner works with each patient to choose an individualized look that emphasizes their desired appearance. We strive for professional results that give our patients peace of mind as they move into a new phase beyond surgery.

Is 3D nipple tattooing a suitable alternative to nipple reconstruction surgery?

Yes, 3D nipple tattooing is considered a non-surgical alternative to nipple reconstruction. It can provide a realistic and aesthetically pleasing result for individuals who prefer not to undergo additional surgical procedures.

However, nipple tattooing and nipple reconstruction surgery can be paired. This combination of procedures can help to restore projection and achieve a more natural look. Your surgeon can help you decide which approach is best for your individual needs.

How long should I wait after my breast reconstruction surgery to get a 3D nipple tattoo?

We recommended that our patients wait three to four months after their final reconstruction surgery before getting a 3D nipple tattoo. This allows time for your skin to fully heal and settle, lessening the possibility of the tattoo becoming distorted over time.
