“If you know anyone who has had or has breast cancer and has had a mastectomy please tell them about Christina Johnson-Siegel. She did such a good job on my tattoos yesterday. I wish I could show everyone, no I won’t but I want to! My surgery is 12 years old and she redid my color for me. I never could have imagined she could give me back something that has been gone for 12 years! She took her time and mixed colors exactly how she wanted and made sure everything was perfect. I am so happy with the result!”   — H.M. July 2015

“I just wanted you to know that I got home and showered and they look amazing! I can’t thank you enough. You’re a special person and it has to make you feel good knowing you are making women beautiful. Thank you!!!!”   — S.B. October 2015

“Hi Christina!! Just wanted to let you know that my oncologist and my plastic surgeon ..both in Cincinnati.. are very pleased with your 3D nipple tattoos. I gave them both cards and they will likely be giving referrals. Thanks again!” - S. H. December 2015

"My tattoos look perfect already. At a glance I almost forget. :) " - P.C. November 2016

"Chrissy is absolutely amazing! I will admit, I have shown them off to a few people.  Making the decision to have both of my breasts removed a year ago was not an easy decision.  Having my nipples tattooed on made me feel whole again.  I look in the mirror and don't see scars, I see me.  Thank you SO much Chrissy!"                                       - C.S. December 2016

"Really love my tattoos. My daughter can't believe how real they look. Thanks again Chrissy!!!" - A.P. December 2016

“I have been meaning to message you for a while. Even though I still am not happy with my implants, I am very happy with my tattoos. I am glad that I did that for myself.”             - K.B.  March 2017

"I LOVE my new eyebrows, Christina!  You did such a wonderful job start to finish.  When you have chemo brain like I do, it helps to hear things more than once.  Christina explained to me what would happen before we even scheduled an important.  At the appointment, she explained all along the way and she was so concerned about my comfort.  It was a wonderful experience.  It's amazing to have full length eyebrows without having to draw them on.  I didn't fully realize what it would do to my confidence.  I cannot thank you enough, Christina!!  This has been a wonderful gift to end my treatment." - D.K. June 2017

"I am to the moon happy with my new tattoos!!! It is definitely been life altering to be whole again" -C.K. Jan 2018

"I was diagnosed with stage 0 DCIS in my right breast. I decided to undergo a bilateral mastectomy in May 2017. I received my breast implants in September 2017. I was contemplating 3d nipple tattoos because I felt uncomfortable with my breasts, and it changed my life. My breasts now look realistic and I have Dr. Natalie Jones (oncologist) Dr. Carol Greco (ob-gyn) Dr. Tyler Angelos (plastic surgeon) and Christina Siegel ( who did my wonderful 3-D nipple tattoos) to thank. If you are deciding if nipple tattoos are for you, consult with Christina at Living Story Tattoo. She will complete your breast reconstruction journey and make you feel whole again." - A.D. Jan 2018

“Hi Chrissy! I have intended to text you all week to let you know how happy I am with my new nipples! If I didn’t have the surgical scars, I think it would be impossible to tell that they aren’t the originals! Your work is amazing and I am so glad that I had heard of your reputation among many other survivors. As you know, it has been an almost two-year process from diagnosis to finally getting my nipple tattoos. This was the culmination of the entire journey and I feel I have come full circle. For your beautiful heart and compassion, I will be forever grateful. you are truly one in a million!”- S.B. Sep 2018

“5 stars! I can’t say enough about the wonderful work that Christina does. I had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. This wonderful woman made areolas and 3D nipples for me. They are gorgeous. They look so real. The 3D effect is amazing! I feel so much better about myself. When I look in the mirror, I look “normal” again. It’s just amazing. Thank you Christina. I’m “ME” again” -S.J.C. Jan 8, 2019

“By the way, my tattoos are wonderful. They are amazing. I feel so much better with them. I can’t thank you enough. You are life changing for women like me”. -Jan 10, 2019


“Hi Chrissy, I just got out of the shower and looked at myself in the mirror and smiled at my body for the first time in three and a half years! Just wanted to let you know! Hugs!”- Mar 25, 2019

“Dear Christina, Just wanted to send a short and sweet thank you and a “little something extra” for doing such a great job in re-creating my nipple/areola area with your tattooing. My fist experience was not the best as you know- they tottally faded! Now I feel whole again- and they look so real! Happy summer!” - May 2019

“I really love my new tattoos. My husband’s jaw dropped. Yay! So much. Can’t believe how real they look!”- E.H. May 24, 2019

“I never comment here ( apologies for the long post) but I feel the need to strongly recommend Chrissy with Living Story Tattoo, whom I saw 4 years agao for my 3 D tattooing. Chrissy is exceptional, and she is truly a 3D nipple tattoo Master. She’s exceedingly professional, and has a clean(yet warm and welcoming) tattoo space. She’s also an RN with former surgical experience, so it’s a guarantee her tools and equipment as always sterile, which is extremely important. Chrissy is the nicest person ( and funny!), with a wonderful bedside manner, and she makes you feel completely as ease. It’s also her passion and life’s purpose to ehlp people, and she won’t let you leave if you’re not 100% satisfied with the outcome. If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll immediately notice the extreme joy it brings to her to make people feel beautiful. Additionally, very few people are highly skilled in this area and Chrissy is one of those people. There seems to be quite a few less-than-great artists out there jumping on the 3D tattoo and microblading bandwagon, so please do your research, because 3D nipple tattoos are permanent. Just like with any traditional tattoo artist, there are many levels of mastery, from inexperienced to expert, and Chrissy absolutely is the latter. 3D nipple tattooing requires years of extensive training and expertise to look realistic. I went to Chrissy because she is AR certified ( Areola Retsorative Tattoo method) and because she is an RN with prior experience in plastics, so I knew she was familliar with reconstruction. Experience truly matters in this area, and Chrissy is A+! I cannot recommend her enough. Spectacular 3D/areola tattoo artist, and spectacular person, too. :)” - G.C. June 3, 2019

“I will never be able to express the gratitude that I am feeling! You have truly given my womanhood back. Who knew all it took was a little love <3 and some ink.”- S.N.- July 1, 2019

“I will never be able to thank you enough for giving me my womanhood back…you are a very talented and amazing woman…<3 <3 <3 <3” - July 12, 2019

“Chrissy, I cannot thank you enough for making me feel whole again! You are such a gifted tattoo artist. You made the nipple tat process relaxing and fun. Thank you for being a blessing for al of us breast cancer/ BRCA patients!” - K.S. Sept 9, 2019

“Hi Christina, :) Just wanted to let you know I’m doing great. You are amazing!”- D.M. Sept 10, 2019

“I’d be honored {if you shared my photos}. Let Dr. Vasko know I am happy with the reconstruction and the tats. You two are very special people which I am very happy to have met in spite of the circumstances. Thank you!” B. H. B. -Sept 10, 2019

“Hi Christina! I am so happy you got to do my tattoos today. I showed my husband and face timed my daughter. They both couldn't believe it. My daughter wasn't convinced that they were flat!! You do amazing work. Thank you so much!”- L.K. Sept 24, 2019

“Hi Chrissy, I had to go to see Dr Tiwari today and he always tells me how nice of job you did on my tattoos, and I agree with him. You did a wonderful job. Thank you so much :) I hope he tells you wwwwwwwhen you do a nice job. Have a wonderful weekend. …I am glad I made your day. You do awesome work. I love my tattoos. They make me feel whole. I am excited when I get compliments on them from doctors or others”- J.W. Oct 4,2019

“So I went to see Chrissy (Living Story Tattoo) today for my second visit for tough up and making my nipples a little darker. I have to tell y’all she made me cry. All I had to do was look in the mirror after she was finished and I started crying. After everything I went through since my whole cancer journey began 5 1/2 years ago, I feel normal and like a woman again. Drs T and K made my new “girls” which look amazing, but then Chrissy added the finishing touch. If I was into flashing (and trust me I’m not), NO ONE would know that they aren’t real! Not only does she make miracles happen, but she’s truly one of the sweetest and funniest people I’ve ever met! I love her!!! THANK YOU CHRISSY!!!!!!!” - M.S. Oct. 2019

“Love! Love! Love! My tattoos! Christina Siegel did a phenomenal job! Can’t wait for my follow up. If my boobs looked any better I’d go to Mardi Gras and get tons of beads!”- D.G. Oct 7, 2019

Tattoos replicate nipples for breast-cancer survivors

Christina Siegel’s canvases have known fear, summoned strength and emerged whole, just not the same.

Cancer, or the threat of it, has reshaped the women who come to Siegel and leave with something that matters in a way that no one else can quite grasp...
