October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Just last year over 25,000 Canadian women were diagnosed with breast cancer.
Breast reconstruction or mastectomies are routine procedures that usually do not include areola or nipple reconstruction. This leaves many women feeling like a blank canvas, wishing to restore the original look of their breasts, complete with nipples.
Studio N is one of the few places in Edmonton that offers this unique medical tattoo procedure to achieve the complex colour profile of a realistic nipple. We match the position, size, shape, texture and colour to the natural one.
CTV Edmonton invited Studio N to talk about areola and nipple tattooing as an option for breast cancer survivors. Watch the interview below with our own Natalia Wong, studio owner and head medical tattoo artist.
