Re: Tattoos!

Hi MysteryMouse, Im afraid I cant help you on the tattoo-fade front as I'm potentially facing this myself in a few months.  

 

Here's some info on nipple recon:  https://www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/treating/surgery/types-of-breast-reconstruction...

 

This is a really good documentary to watch and there is a tattoo specialist in Cardiff featured if you want to look at having the tattoo redone:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bdl616

 

Best wishes and I hope you find a result you are happy with in the end. xxx

Tattoos!

Hello ladies

 

So, after having a nipple reconstruction back in January, I went ahead and had a tattoo this week.

 

Just had a peek and I know that the colour will fade, but it's so bright, like a bulls eye! 😮  The other thing I have noticed is that I am now completely flat.  The poor little nipple that had been disappearing since the nipple reconstruction (I had a 'hint' of nipple left) has now gone completely and is now sadly flat.

 

Has this happened to others and can some-one reassure me about the colour fading please?

 

Thanks!

 

MM
