Charity Division of Tatts On Tatts Off:
Survivors Ink is a not for profit charity organisation, dedicated to providing breast cancer survivors with FREE realistic nipple tattooing, including the financial and logistical support to do so.
Unfortunately, cancer doesn’t stop affecting lives at the completion of treatment. So many breast cancer survivors and their loved ones continue to experience both financial and emotional hardship as a result of their unfortunate collision with cancer treatment.
At Survivor’s Ink, we acknowledge and respect the magnitude of issues that a woman must face in the recovery phase of her breast cancer.
One avenue of recovery in which we are able to make a difference, is the completion phase of reconstructive surgery.
After surgery, most women are left without nipple/(s), and in place of this, may have traumatic scars, in which they must face each day. Cosmetic tattooing offers women the chance to complete their reconstructive journey.
Sadly, many survivors are unable to consider cosmetic tattooing (and sometimes the reconstructive surgery altogether), due to the exorbitant costs associated.
Survivors Inks aim is to provide free realistic nipple tattooing to all Australians effected by breast cancer and aid in their physical and emotional recovery, free of charge.
As described by survivors,
- Awakened confidence
- Reclaimed sexuality
- Feeling beautiful (and womanly) once more
- No more visible scars
- Feeling whole again
- Closure (significantly important).
All of our tattoo artists have been vigorously vetted and selected for their unique artistic ability and willingness to help others.
These artists provide their time and services, free of charge to Survivors Ink.
Because of this and the kind donations of individuals and businesses, we are also able to provide supplemented, accommodation and travel expenses, to our interstate and remote locality survivors.
- Provide FREE Realistic Nipple Tattooing,
- Supplemented accommodation, for interstate / remote locality survivors,
- Supplement travel expenses, for interstate / remote locality survivors; and
- Provide FREE Aftercare products.
* Financial assistance is only available through written application.
