Mastectomy 3D Nipple Tattoo

Taking the first step towards your mastectomy 3D areola/nipple tattoo is a straightforward and caring process at

Tattoo Gold. Before following the below steps please read through the Frequently Asked Questions via this link. 

Step 1:
Contacting Coen - To initiate the process, send a booking request or express your interest directly to Coen via email at coen@tattoogoldnz.com. If you feel comfortable doing so, please include a brief outline of your journey, the specific service you are considering, and photos of your breast/chest area. Your story helps Coen understand your needs better and ensures he can provide personalized guidance.


Step 2:
Personalized Consultation - Coen will promptly reply to discuss your request or booking further. For your convenience, consultations via email are preferred, but if you prefer an in-person meeting, Coen is more than happy to meet you at the Tattoo Gold studio. During the consultation, Coen will share his insights into achieving the best possible outcome for your tattoo. He'll discuss the estimated time required for the service, the number of appointments/sessions that may be needed, and the pricing.


Step 3:
Booking Your Appointment - Once you feel comfortable proceeding with the tattoo, an appointment will be booked to start your transformative journey. You have the option to choose a private session, where the studio will be closed for a one-on-one appointment with Coen, ensuring privacy. You're welcome to bring along any 18+ support persons you wish. If you prefer a booking during normal business hours (more appointment availability), Coen can arrange privacy screens for your comfort, and you'll be allowed to bring up to two support persons.


Step 4:
Preparing for Your Appointment - Prioritise your well-being on the day of your appointment. Get a good night's sleep the night before, and make sure to have a meal and drink plenty of water or something sugary before arriving at the studio. For added comfort, feel free to bring your own clean pillow and blanket. To ensure optimal tattooing conditions, it's recommended not to wear a bra to or after your 3D areola/nipple/scar cover-up tattoo appointment.


Step 5:
Tattoo Aftercare - After your tattooing session, Coen will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and the best results. Your well-being remains our priority even after your appointment is complete.

At Tattoo Gold, we understand the significance of this journey, and Coen is committed to providing you with the utmost care, comfort, and support throughout the process. Embrace your unique story and let us help you restore confidence and empowerment with a beautiful and meaningful mastectomy 3D areola/nipple tattoo.

Exploring Tattoo Design as an alternative

If 3D nipple tattooing doesn't align with your preferences, Coen brings a wealth of experience to the table when it comes to Tattoo Design and Art as a viable option to conceal scarring. Whether you're looking for partial or full scar coverage, Coen excels at creating designs that harmoniously integrate with your unique body shape and the specific area of scarring. The appearance, thickness, width, and the healing time your scar has undergone can all play a role in determining the ideal style and influencing the design concept or theme that Coen can craft for you.

Clients who have worked with Coen often gravitate towards elegant and fluid floral shapes or intricate ornamental patterns. These designs not only provide an aesthetic solution but also serve as a source of personal empowerment and self-expression. You can find examples of such designs below, illustrating the artistry and dedication Coen brings to every client's transformation journey.

Non-Breast Cancer/Mastectomy Related Areola/Nipple services

In addition to providing mastectomy areola and nipple/scar covering services, Coen also specialises in cosmetic enhancements and skin tone adjustments. It's not uncommon to feel self-conscious about the size or color tone of your areola or nipple, and you may be seeking solutions to address these concerns. Coen has a wealth of experience in working with clients to help them feel more at ease in their own skin or achieve the aesthetic changes they desire.

Below, we showcase some examples of Coen's work that go beyond the realm of cancer and mastectomy-related tattoos. These are instances where clients have sought artistic enhancements for various personal reasons. Each design is a testament to Coen's dedication to helping individuals feel more confident and at ease with their bodies

How to begin your journey with us

How to Begin Your Journey with Us
 

The most important step in this process is to allow ample time for your body and scars to heal following your surgery. Coen, our expert artist, generally recommends that your scars have a healing period of at least 8-12 months before the tattooing process. This duration allows the scars to settle, ensuring the best possible application of ink and remarkable tattooing results.

During the healing period, it's also essential to take some time to consider the options available to you for covering your scars, whether you're interested in 3D nipple/areola color work or a personalized tattoo design.
 

If you're considering 3D nipple/areola color work, Coen advises you to think about the specifics of the nipple/areola you envision. Take into account factors like shape, color, size, and whether you'd like your previous nipples to serve as a reference for your new ones.
 

For those leaning more toward a unique tattoo design, we encourage you to explore various design ideas that resonate with you and that you'd be comfortable having tattooed over your scar tissue. You can start by searching keywords such as "scar cover-up tattoo," "mastectomy tattoo," "breast tattoos," or "cancer survivor tattoos" on Google or Pinterest to ignite your creativity and refine your vision.
 

The more thought you put into your preferences, the smoother the process will be for Coen as he prepares a personalised design that is tailored to your unique journey and aspirations.

 

We are here to support you every step of the way on your path to renewed self-confidence and empowerment. Whenever you are ready please contact us via email to coen@tattoogoldnz.com

Be kind to your artist, everyone appreciates good body and oral hygiene. You may feel nervous prior to your appointment, and that is ok. The best thing to do is to relax and stay as calm as possible. Your artist will do their best to ensure you are comfortable and well looked after. If you feel they haven't during your time with us, please let us know. If you have any questions or unsure about your design, kindly ask your artist prior, so on the day, your experience goes as smooth as possible. Wear appropriate clothing depending on the placement of the tattoo and bring a hair tie if need be.

Reviews from our beautiful clients

“I want to thank you again for my beautiful tattoo and the respectful way you handled my appointment. When I looked at it for the first time in the mirror I just felt joy. When I got home the emotions came along with the tears as I thought about my journey and the tattoo being on my wish list from the beginning. It marks the end of a painful journey and the beginning of many years ahead as the new me. Below is my journey and my reason for the Tattoo.

Christmas Eve 2019 I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my right breast. I choose to have a mastectomy which I had January 2020. As my cancer was caught early due to a scheduled mammogram, nothing in the lymph nodes and having a mastectomy I didn’t need radiation or chemo but I have had to take hormone blockers. I then had my left breast off in November 2021 as I have chosen to go flat. The tattoo wasn’t really about scar coverage it was about putting something of beauty on the blank canvas that is my new chest. The fact that it covers some of my scar is a bonus. I now look in the mirror and see my tattoo and smile as it is beautiful, I don’t focus on what I have lost but how great my future is. It has brought me so much joy.”

“I was diagnosed at 36 in August 2010 with breast cancer which turned my world upside down. I had a mastectomy on my right breast and my nipple was also removed. I have an implant and also part of my back muscle was used for breast symmetry. I had nipple reconstruction done by my surgeon using my own skin which was amazing. I also had “tattooing” done on my aereola but this wasn’t permanent and it faded over time leaving a white area. This made me feel not fully complete as a woman. I have been following Coens work for a while and saw he had done nipple reconstructions so I reached out to him.

I meet with Coen to do some nipple tattooing. Recovering from the shock of having breast cancer and the removal of a breast as a woman you struggle with feeling incomplete or less than a woman. It took me a few years to adjust to this new normal.
Coen right from our first meeting you made me feel so comfortable and safe in your presence. I’m in awe of your talent and the kindness and empathy you show to a woman’s unique journey and rediscovering her self love 💕

You matched my nipple with such attention to detail. Your skill is second to none and I recommend you highly to any woman or man who have had breast cancer. Keep up your inspirational and dedicated mahi. Thank you once again for being part of my journey. Truely grateful 🙏🏻”

"Coen, my tattooist is a true professional. This was my first tattoo experience so was very scary for me regarding the pain etc.

My fears soon vanished as every step was explained to me & it was important to Coen that I was comfortable & happy with the final result.

I am absolutely delighted with what was achieved & I only wish that I'd done this years ago.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work which is so appreciated. 👌 Warm regards - Sue

I would highly recommend you to any friends that were considering getting a tattoo cosmetic or otherwise."

“In 2019 at age 32, 6 weeks after having my third child, I was diagnosed with stage 3/grade 3 breast cancer. What followed was 2 years of countless appointments and treatments which took a huge toll on me physically and emotionally. Part of my treatment included a full mastectomy in which my nipple was removed. I was left feeling incomplete, and I hated looking at myself in the mirror to see the marks that cancer left on my body. It was a constant reminder of the hard times I went through. However, now with my new nipple, I barely notice all the scars and it’s made a huge difference in getting back to my (new) normal. I always joked about my funny looking breast after cancer and didn’t realize how emotional it would be to feel complete again. 

Coen, you were such a gentleman the whole way through. You are a perfectionist and have such an amazing eye for detail. The work you do for people like myself is so inspiring and words can not express how thankful I am.  Now I can not wait to get another tattoo from you!”

“Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 at the age of 39, I had a left mastectomy and TRAM flap reconstruction.  I am forever grateful to the amazing surgeons I had and the options that private insurance gave me.  I had a nipple tattoo that was done by the nurse who worked for my plastic surgeon but 10 years on, this had completely faded.  I wanted to have the nipple tattoo redone and add some fine line flowers to celebrate the journey and milestone of 10 years.  We were referred to Coen Mitchell by another tattoo artist my husband knew and when I reached out to him about my idea he was very responsive and supportive. The design Coen came up with is perfect and the whole process was very smooth (and relatively painless given I don’t have a lot of feeling after the reconstruction).  I would thoroughly recommend Coen to anyone considering getting something similar done and I have found the results to be both less obvious (the nipple now looks Florence natural) and a celebration of my journey.  Thanks Coen”

"About 15 years ago I had breast reduction surgery – for two reasons. First my breasts were big and saggy and secondly there is a long history of breast cancer in my family and reducing the amount of breast tissue would lower my chances of getting breast cancer.
 

Five years after that (October 2013) I felt the dreaded lump in my left breast. My mother, sister, aunt , grandmother all had (and survived) breast cancer – now me!.
 

I elected to have a mastectomy and reconstruction. These two surgeries left my nipple and areola a mess.

I am so grateful that Coen has been able to use his incredible skill to colour this area to make it look as natural as possible.

I am thrilled with the result – thank you Coen."

"In 2019 at age 26, I had a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy to reduce my chances of hereditary breast cancer. It was a no-brainer. However, with two young children, it was not easy. Two surgeries, multiple expander fills, and minor infections followed by my mum being diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. The thought of another surgery to create nipples was too much.

 

I was assured the costly 3D nipple tattoos would be incredible and very realistic. Clearly, this was not the case. After two attempts, I said no to anymore. The lack of experience was obvious. I resigned to the fact that this was what I looked like now, and I should be grateful.

 

After losing Mum last year, I decided I wanted this chapter closed. I deserved better and wanted to look in the mirror confidently. After following Coen for years, I came across his nipple tattoos. I had always dreamed he would design something for me, but I didn't expect it to be nipples.

 

Coen, you are changing women's lives. Your skill and professionalism are unmatched. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
