Tattoo artist creates 3D nipples for breast cancer survivors

Tattoo artist Mandy Sauler uses her tattoo skills to medically treat breast cancer patients in need of closure after a long journey through breast reconstruction.

After she lost her right breast, Marianne Sarcich trained herself to not look down.

The breast cancer that invaded the North Wilmington mom’s body last August forced her to have a unilateral mastectomy, losing everything on the right side. She had reconstruction surgery, but the implant didn’t help her feel like herself.

So when Sarcich would get dressed in the morning, she avoided looking down at her right breast or glancing at the mirror. She hated seeing the white skin broken only by a pink scar.
