I'm looking for recommendations for the very best 3D nipple tattoo artists. I'm willing to fly anywhere in the US. I am considering Vinnie Myers but he makes you wait 5 months, so I couldn't get them until January. If I have to wait, I will, but I was wondering if there is anyone else out there who is just as good as Vinnie but who only makes you wait maybe 3 or 4 months?

Doesn't Vinnie make you wait that long to ensure the best healing of your boobs and the best outcomes?

A few months for best outcomes seems like the best idea to me.

Plenty of them only make you wait 3-4 months. My surgeon said 3 months. They’re all different. Just looking for recommendations

There are plenty of tattoo artist that are just as good if not better than Vinnie. I used a woman (Mandy Sauler who is wonderful. She works out of my PS office as well as at other locations including New Jersey and New York City ( I found her to be professional as well as compassionate and easy to work with. My tattoos are excellent and still look good after 6 years and no touch ups.

Hopefully others will provide more suggestions. You should not need to wait to finish your reconstruction.
