DOES IT HURT?
Updated: May 13, 2022
It's so easy to fear what we don't know. If you've been tattooed once, you know what it feels like! Would it feel any different on the chest after a mastectomy?
WELL - Like Rachel from friends Said:
- "IT'S NOT LICKED ON BY KITTENS!"
BUT - if your body has been through something major, like a breast amputation - there will be some areas that have no feeling at all.
Usually on the breasts themselves after a mastectomy, there is little to no feeling for the most part. Some places will 'zing' but the rest will be comfortable.
AND - I use a light lydocaine as I work and my machine is silent, making it very easy to focus on our great conversation instead of the nominal discomfort.
Nobody has just ONE tattoo, after all - they all come back for more, so it can't be that bad, right?
