The First Nipple Tattoo Parlor in Europe

Alexia Cassar has an amazing career path, from cancer research scientist she decided to change her approach to the way she cared for those affected by cancer “from a more global perspective to a more personalized and direct way”.

She spent over a year learning from tattoo artists and surgeons how to practice this 3D nipple reconstruction technique on different types of skin.

Thus, The Tétons Tattoo Shop was born, the first tattoo parlor 100% dedicated to post mastectomy nipple tattoos. A new method in a new type of environment, neither a hospital nor a classic tattoo shop, making the clients feel more comfortable.

The artist now known as “Miss Tétons” has a goal of building back women’s self confidence after battling cancer. Having personally experienced cancer in her family with her daughter being diagnosed with leukemia when she was only 10 months old, Alexia truly understands and feels “true happiness from assisting these daily rebirths from women for whom resilience is not a simple trend”.
