Tattooed Nipples celebrates women who are moving forward and living life fully and joyfully after mastectomy. It promotes emotional well-being and healing during the final stages of breast reconstruction and beyond.
Our mission is twofold. One is to provide an educational roadmap to help guide others navigating the same path. The second goal is to change perceptions about reconstructed breasts—and the women behind them.
The Tattooed Nipples Chain Diary follows a group of women through their titillating escapades during breast reconstruction and beyond. All the main authors have opted for reconstruction after their mastectomies. We chronicle our ongoing experiences—in real time—in open, honest and refreshing ways.
Tattooed Nipples encourages women to complete their reconstruction, hence the title. So many women stop short and do not fully complete the process—especially when surgical revisions are needed—often because they are just so exhausted from their journey. And so many women do not even get their nipple tattoos—the crowning glory of completion! Our site offers a base of knowledge for this defining last step.
