Nipple tattoos are a part of breast reconstruction. Our team offers breast cancer survivors nipple tattoos after mastectomy to help their sense of femininity on the path to recovery.

Emily is a breast cancer survivor. After undergoing a double mastectomy and breast reconstructive surgery, she decided to get a nipple tattoo. A 3D nipple tattoo, also called micropigmentation, re-pigments the area to make it look more realistic. In this video, you can watch Emily during her nipple tattoo appointment to see how tattooed nipples are created and what a 3D nipple tattoo looks like.

At Penn Medicine, nipple tattoos are created by Mandy Sauler, a micropigmentation specialist in plastic surgery. Mandy grew up in her mother's tattoo shop and started out as a conventional tattoo artist. After working for more than a decade as a tattoo artist, Mandy now works right in Penn hospitals and focuses on permanent cosmetics and 3D nipple tattoos. Mandy is board-certified by the American Academy of Micropigmentation and is a member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetics.
