      Maybe at a doc office, you might get some numbing. But, if you go with a tattoo artist, you do not. I highly recommend tattoo artists for the 3D nipple tattoos because they do tattoos every day.... and they are super creative and artistic and interesting people. I think you get the best work from folks with EXTENSIVE tattooing experience. It does hurt, but in comparison to weekly blood draws and post-surgery pain, it's really very very manageable.

      Here in Minneapolis, a go-to tattoo artist for 3D nipple tattoos or any kind of post-mastectomy tattoo work is Tatus by Kore - she's amazing.

    I did not have the shoulder tissue exchange. How long after the permanent implant surgery did you start feeling comfortable?

    How did your exchange surgery end up? Are you happy with it? How long does it take to get comfortable with the new implants? Did you choose silicone or saline? I would be very interested in hearing how your fat grafts & tatoo nipple procedure go along. I will be doing the same plan. The main thing is getting these expanders out!! I look forward to hearing from you, wish you well!
