What is the Mastectomy Tattooing Alliance?

The Mastectomy Tattooing Alliance (MTA) is a registered charity founded by tattoo artist, Tanya Buxton, in 2021. Our charity has been created to help support the breast cancer, BRCA and transgender/non-binary communities in their healing journey after mastectomy, reconstruction and gender affirming surgeries. We provide funding for areola and mastectomy tattoos, and connect people with skilled tattoo artists, approved by our charity.

Mastectomy tattoos and 3D areola-nipple tattoos play a vital role in a person’s physical and emotional healing after breast cancer surgery, preventative mastectomy surgery and gender affirming surgery.
