Objectives

We're the UKs first breast cancer mastectomy tattoo charity dedicated to empowering breast cancer survivors with free 3D nipple tattoos. 

We provide a directory of specialist artists in the UK, our goal is to have one in every city so everyone has easy access to this service.

Currently breast cancer survivors are offered a free semi permanent tattoo along with their mastectomy treatment. These tattoos fade away and cause detrimental physical and mental health issues for the survivor. Repeat tattoos aren't often offered due to funding. 

Repeat semi permanent tattoos cause further damage to the delicate scar tissue and this needs to be avoided.

We understand the psychological impact this tattooing has for a breast cancer survivor at the end of their cancer journey and we want to offer them an alternative option that helps them feel 'normal' and empowered, full of confidence.

Our tattoos are done by experienced and specially trained artists who focus strongly on creating long lasting realism which enables the survivor to regain confidence after multiple surgeries. 

We provide education and emotional support to breast cancer survivors and work hard at raising awareness of this specialist service for people who don't know it exists.

Activities

We hold regular fundraisers and support artists who join us in holding their own fundraisers which in turn helps us raise awareness of this work.

When we offer funding to a client they always want to help support our cause. 

We collaborate with other charities to raise awareness of our service so we can support more breast cancer survivors with this specialist work.

We hold educational talks and classes to discuss all aspects of this healing tattoo service.
