Maryland tattoo artist Vinnie Myers provides an awesome and important style of tattooing for breast cancer survivors who have had surgery to restore the shape of their breasts but still lack nipples. Myers is able to ink on new 3D nipples and areolas and is so good at it that women come from all over world for the "Vinnie-style" session and pay between $400 and $600 out-of-pocket if their insurance doesn't cover the cost. Obviously a tattoo can't fully replace a physical nipple, but appearance of one can and does drastically change the way these women feel about their bodies.
