Cancer (ERGH we hate that awful word)
Sadly in life far to many men and women have to face this awful illness.
Leaving our bodies scarred and maybe not looking quite as we had hoped.
Breast cancer leaves women and men feeling incomplete, lost, uncomfortable and no longer confident within their skin after mastectomy surgery.
Many survivors on the NHS waiting list do not realise that they will receive a SEMI-PERMANENT nipple and areola tattoo, which are very basic circles with very basic colours. Semi-permanent tattoos require top ups which are damaging to already fragile skin.
Your body has been through enough trauma without having to have repeat damage to scarred, reconstructed and often radiated tissue.
A very well known, respected surgeon said " You would not expect a Tattoo artist to perform surgery, so why expect a Surgeon to perform a tattoo".
Tattoo artists have skills and experience working with scar tissue. While surgeons have had basic training in semi-permanent tattooing sadly they do not have the artistic skills to make a nipple and areola look as realistic as a trained and certified tattoo artist can.
Permanent tattooing means less trauma to your already delicate skin. You will not have to keep coming back for top ups every few years. You can simply get back to being YOU again. Loving life, feeling complete and confident again. Own your body!
Your first steps of the final part of your journey is a cup or tea/coffee and a biscuit, along with a FREE private consultation to speak about your treatment, your expectations, desired results and aftercare.
Rather have something decorative to cover your scars? Or simply because you love tattoos. Decorative mastectomy tattooing can offer scar coverage while giving you a design you will love for years to come.
If you are unsure which option you would like, contact us for a consultation.
Its not just post reconstructive breast cancer patients who can benefit from this service.
Kaz also works with the Trans community to help men and women feel more comfortable and confident within their bodies.
FTM men often have bilateral mastectomies to remove the breast tissue to create the male chest. This often means that they will have the nipples removed during surgery. A male nipple can then be created by using nipple reconstructive surgeries and by tattooing. Kaz can help create the perfect nipple or nipples for your chest, based on size and shape of the bodies frame and using your skin tones to create the perfect colours for you.
MTF in the case of female clients the original areola and nipple can sometimes be saved during surgery but the shape and size may need increasing to create a more feminine look. Colour matching is carried out on any existing areola and nipple.
