Coffee Conversation: Breast Cancer & Tattoos
January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Forge Breast Cancer Survivor Center hosts a virtual “Coffee Conversation” on select mornings at 10:00 am central time that features a 30-minute interview with a survivor, co-survivor, or medical professional on a topic, followed by a time for conversation with participants.
Wednesday, January 25th’s Coffee Conversation features tattoo artist, Vinnie Myers. Vinnie Myers, an internationally renowned tattoo artist, has over three decades of experience. He now incorporates his lifelong passion of art with the application of nipple and areola tattoos, which provides a unique service to breast cancer survivors. His 3D nipple and areola tattooing techniques provide clients with the most realistic representations of lifelike nipples and areolas available. Myers’ exposure to an infinite number of breast reconstruction recipients has provided him with an unmatched level of experience tattooing the vast differences in skin that each client’s particular case presents.
Please join our Coffee Conversation to talk with Vinnie about tattoos after breast cancer surgeries and more!
