Artist Vincent Myers tattoos Wendy, age 72, in his shop in Finksburg, Maryland, on March 21, 2012. “Vinnie” Myers specializes in tattooing nipples and areolas onto women who have undergone breast cancer surgery. Using precisely mixed pigments, he creates a perfect 3-D illusion of the real thing, and in doing so, enables women who have undergone mastectomies to feel more like women once again. On average, it takes Myers two hours to complete his work, during which he will determine the color and size of the areolas of each patient. Photo: Fabienne Faur/AFP/Getty Images
