Hope After Breast Cancer: This Tattoo Artist Gives Women a Chance to Feel Comfortable in Their Bodies Again

August 19, 2015 1 min read

"They call it getting a Vinnie," one woman explains in a video for The New York Times. Like many other women, she is a breast cancer survivor who is rebuilding her health from the inside out. Hoping to find a new sense of self-esteem, she travels to the popular tattoo parlour called Little Vinnie’s Tattoos in Finksburg, Maryland to tattoo nipples onto her breasts to complete what was once an attribute that enhanced her femininity. vinnie myers The artist, Vinnie Myers is in awe that they have received so many survivors from near and far requesting the same thing. Myers says his parlour probably sees between 1,500 – 2,000 women per year. And though he never imagined he'd be known for this type of artistry, it has really put into perspective just how many women have been diagnosed with breast cancer. But what was once just a job has now become much more personal to Myers. Five years ago, he decided he wanted to stop his nipple artistry and bring his business back to typical tattoos. But just as he did this, his sister called to inform him she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and so Myers realized that he could simply not give up providing this gift to women. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Egq2qnnXSPY Have you ever met someone who has this type of tattoo?
