Areola Artist in The Huffington Post
A cosmetic tattoo artist is offering closure to breast cancer survivors who underwent mastectomies in the most wonderful way.
Claire Louise Willis, 37, from Poole, Dorset, offers a free service tattooing lifelike areolas – the coloured area of skin that surrounds the nipple or teat – onto women after they have had theirs removed or disfigured during surgery.
The innovative technique uses detailing and shading to mimic a real areola and give a 3D appearance to a woman’s nipple area.

In the past three years, Willis estimates that she’s tattooed areolas onto 40 breast cancer survivors, often with life-changing results.
“It’s the very least they deserve,” she told The Huffington Post UK.
