Decorative/artist tattoo on reconstructed foobs

Are there gals here who have done decorative tattoos on their reconstructed foobs? Every time I see photos of them, they are gorgeous. Through a wonderful organization, I have to privilege of having mine done. I'm 16+ years old from diagnosis - finished radiation 16 years ago this week. Finally at my senior age, I love (most days) how my body looks and see this as an opportunity to enhance the beauty of my foobs. I'm very fortunate that my PS did an amazing job. For those who have had it done, would you share photos? Only photos of the decorative part - no faces etc as I want to respect your privacy. TIA

    Bump - still looking for responses. If you are not comfortable sharing photos, I get it - but sharing stories would be great.

    Karen - Well, maybe this thread will take off. Not sure why I thought there was more on that thread, sorry.

    Let me know how your meeting goes. I've seen some beautiful tattoos (in person) and am on the fence. I can't do anything until next summer, so I have some time.

    Serendipity - had the prophy side done a month after the BC side. The artist did an amazing job. They are beautiful. I will try to post a photo of just the artwork, but I'll have to do it from my phone as the photos aren't showing up on my computer

    Hi Karen! Can't wait to see it. I met with my tattoo artist last week. I showed him somethings I like and explained some things I'd like incorporated. He'll start working on sketching something out. I'm having surgery on the 15th, if I don't need another surgery, the PS said that I'd be ok to get tattoo started by the end of Summer/beginning of Fall.

    Hugs to you
