About Lucy Thompson
Nipple Tattoo Artist
Lucy Thompson uses her artistic skills and experience in traditional tattooing and body art to recreate realistic nipples for women who have been through multiple surgeries and are looking for the final piece to their puzzle or the cherry on the cake as its often referred to.
Lucy travelled to Belfast to attend the Titanic International Tattoo Convention in 2019 with her charity the Nipple Innovation Project.
“I’m proud to say I won first place for Most Realistic Tattoo with a very brave client who was a breast cancer survivor.
“I entered realistic 3D bilateral 3D nipple tattoos, which has never been done before, not only in the UK but worldwide. I was up against many internationally-known, pro-team artists from all around the world."
Lucy's brave client consented to showing her tattoos after she felt elated at seeing the results, she presented them privately to a panel of judges and won first place! Award winning nipples - that’s not something you hear every day!!
Lucy decided that after being able to help her auntie who had had a mastectomy and a fading hospital tattoo, that she wanted more people to feel empowered like her auntie did! So Lucy Thompson set up the UKs first mastectomy tattoo charity in 2018 called The Nipple Innovation Project to be able to offer a directory service for breast cancer survivors who needed It and to provide funding for those who required extra support.
