The Final Step
Complete your journey with post-operative realistic 3-d nipple/areola tattooing


It's the last step in the reconstructive process. Amanda will create the most realistic, lifelike nipples and areolas around. The hospital setting brings the highest level of comfort, service and professionalism. She is now servicing both Indiana and Illinois.

Reconstructive Tattoo Specialist

     Specializing in post-operative, realistic nipple/areola tattooing, Amanda brings over 20 of experience to the plastic and reconstructive practices of Ascension St. Vincent Plastics, and Carle Foundation hospital plastics.

     Amanda will work with you to help you feel complete after your breast reconstructive surgery. A Herron School of Art graduate, she has the background, knowledge, and experience necessary to be one of the first of her kind in a hospital environment in Indiana. Amanda's services are provided under the management of board certified plastic surgeons and you can expect a level of comfort and compassion that is common in a professional medical setting.

     Amanda can either replicate a 3-D nipple and areola to match your existing areola, or create two completely new nipples and areolas to your preference. This means you can choose the size, shape and color of your new areolas. The goal is to achieve a completely realistic nipple that appears to protrude from the areola, made possible with colors that mimic shadows and highlights of a  real nipple and areola. Amanda can match any color that you may currently have on a unilateral mastectomy reconstruction.

"One important factor about the tattooing is that it's being done at a doctor's office, so most insurance plans will cover the procedure as part of the reconstruction. Otherwise, these tattoos can cost as much as $1,000."
