Re: Tattoo over scaring and radiotherapy

A lot of tattoo artists are familiar with tattooing over scars. I'd say start by finding an artist that has a style that you like. Then ask if they're happy to tattoo the area. You need to be comfortable with your artist as obviously you'll be laying exposed etc.

Tattoo over scaring and radiotherapy

Hi, not sure if anyone can help me but I am searching for a uk tattoo artist that can tattoo over my mastectomy scar with a flower like design, not tattoo a nipple! I have had radiotherapy as well! I have had reconstruction and just really want a nice design over my scar! Not really fussed about having a nipple! Have looked on the net and the searches come up with people in the states??? Any advice would be much appreciated! 🙂
