The Nipple Innovation Project (NiP) is the UK’s first mastectomy tattoo charity, providing education and funding for this life-changing service

Our mission through the charity is to empower and dignify breast cancer survivors with realistic nipple tattoos from professionals.

Currently breast cancer survivors are offered a free, semi-permanent tattoo along with their mastectomy treatment. These tattoos fade away and cause detrimental physical and mental health issues for the survivor. Repeat tattoos aren’t often offered due to lack of NHS funding and can cause further damage to the delicate scar tissue.

The purpose of the Nipple Innovation Project is to provide education and funding for breast cancer survivors alongside a directory of verified tattoo artists whom hold the skills to complete specialist experience and skill in tattooing. We are the permanent, safe solution to the current standard of areola tattooing post breast reconstruction.
