Client Testimonial Stories


“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 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.

"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.

"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

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.
