Announcing the first annual P.INK Day. We’re connecting 10 renowned tattoo artists with 10 breast cancer survivors to adorn their mastectomy scars. Donate now and come back October 21st for real time updates and help us spread the word.
In the waiting room of Little Vinnie’s Tattoos, bikers and punks sit side by side with church-going grandmas and soccer moms. Customers fly in from as far as Saudi Arabia, Spain, and Brazil, to an unassuming strip mall just outside of Baltimore complete with tanning salon, liquor store, and adult DVDs. Anxiously, they enter Vinnie Myers’ shop, the final destination for many breast cancer survivors attempting to recover what mastectomies have stolen away.
For all of medicine’s advances, the best option for areola reconstruction is tattooing, and in the field of cosmetic tattooing, Vinnie’s trompe-l’oeil “areola portraits,” as he calls them, are widely regarded as the best that money can buy.
“A tattoo parlor here has become a mecca for an unlikely crowd: women with breast cancer.
Little Vinnie’s Tattoos offers designs ranging from swordfish and skulls to intricate Japanese-style art. But women who have undergone treatment for breast cancer do not typically come for traditional ink. They flock here seeking one thing — a three-dimensional nipple tattoo by the owner, Vinnie Myers.”
