It might come as a surprise to many that tattooing can be part of breast reconstruction surgery for cancer patients who have had a mastectomy. Jean Wescott, a dermalpigmentologist and licensed tattooist with a background in fine art, will talk on this subject at the next meeting of the Breast Cancer Survivors’ Support Group on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 6 p.m., at Wilton Library.
Specifically, she will talk about areola/nipple tattooing. Wescott has worked in Fairfield County for the last eight years doing nipple tattooing for women post mastectomy. She has worked with more than 12 area plastic surgeons.
