Prior to the actual tattooing part, there is a built-in consultation where you let us know what you are wanting. There are pictures to review for inspiration and Candice has recommendations through reviewing your natural colouring and shape. No tattooing is done without you agreeing on the positioning, style, size and colouring of your nipple.
A consultation of some type is required prior to booking this service. We offer email, phone and in-person consultations free of charge. We like to ask questions to ensure that your skin is ready to be tattooed and that you understand the service in advance. Some people only need to email a photo in advance to be able to book. Many are able to answer some questions by phone prior and some may be asked to come in to discuss in person. Everything is customized to you! Start by sending an email to see what we recommend for your service.
Post- mastectomy clientele usually report little to no sensation or pain, dependant on the amount of sensation they feel in the area generally, as there can be decreased overall sensation. The tattoo sensation varies from person to person, but we also use topical anesthetic which numbs the area.
Depending on which surgery you’ve had will depend on the amount of time you should wait. This is why the consultation process is important, because all of our bodies are different. As a precaution, you may ask your surgeon what their recommendation is and also reach out for a consultation.
The procedure can take between approximately three hours, depending on which service you are getting.
Yes. Once the breast mound has been tattooed, the appearance of residual scarring is minimized. You may also opt to camouflage the scar as this is another service we provide.
Yes, although there are occasions when the pigment does not take well on the reconstructed nipple itself. The reconstructed nipple as well as the area around it can still be tattooed, but follow up visits may be needed to ensure adequate pigment retention in that area.
