A Breast Cancer Survivor gets a fresh start from Jesse.

Breast cancer, Breast re-pimentation, areola

 Like most straight men, we like boobs. What we don't like is, when bad things happen to them. It especially bothers us, when it's the biggest and baddest of them all; Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is a real asshole! Everyday, it seems, we're talking with fighters, survivors, friends, and family. People who have all been affected by this disease. Scarred by it. 

 Any survivor of Breast Cancer will carry scars. Some minor, some emotional, and sometimes, when all else has failed, severe. A Mastectomy is the removal of a woman's breast or breasts, in an effort to completely elimate cancerous tissue from the body. In this procedure, there is no way to not leave things a mess. It deeply scars the skin, and can rob a woman of something that defines her, as her. A woman. As big hearted dopes, we can't fully understand what that means.As tattooers though, we know when someone feels good about themselves. Jesse has learned a way he can give a survivor that feeling again.

 Nipple Re-pigmentation, is the process of replacing the nipple by means of tattoo. It is the last step in giving a woman her ladies back. Above is the most recent project by Jesse. This woman had a double Mastectomy and breast reconstruction, including implants. However, as you can see, she was left without the areola. The icing on the ole booby cake. A small detail, that left her feeling... "fake" and "incomplete". By tattooing them, Jesse managed to not only give her her nipples back, but also an amount of Self, that she hadn't had since the surgery. She said she now feels "Right" again. Hell yes!

 To all you Fighters out. We stand with you.   

 

We've officially entered our terrible twos!

Happy Birthday to us! Today marks our two year anniversary. Thats right. TWO! Two years of grindin' and whinin'. Hah.

We want to thank everyone who has walked through our doors, and got us here. You're support and loyalty keeps us motivated and going, and we couldn't do it without you. Seriously. Thank you. We know you have a choice. Thanks for making the right one. wink. 

Our Birthday wish? We wish that we would get to tattoo even more of you. Simple as that. Tattooing is our life and our passion. Nothing could make us happier. Except for maybe a Porsche 911, emblazoned with the Red Claw. You know. If you wanna get us something. 

Love to you all.
