After going through a double mastectomy due to breast cancer, chemotherapy and all the other required drugs to kill the beast of cancer; I decided to have the breast cancer reconstruction. When I had my implants put in I decided after I healed I wanted to have the nipple surgery also. After seeing what they can do to make you feel like a woman
again, I wanted it all. After my nipple surgery I started looking for someone that could tattoo my areola and nipple area on my new made breasts.
I was given several phone numbers from my doctor of a few nurses who do just this for breast cancer patients. After talking with them and seeing their work I decided to go looking on the internet to see what else was available out there in tattoo land. I stumbled on a lady who does this in New York and I decided to ask her if she knew anyone that could do the work I needed in the Tampa Area. She said “oh my goodness, you are in the best place in the world. Go to the John Hashey School of Permanent Makeup in Oldsmar, FL and he will take care of you.”
I was so excited. I pulled him up on the internet and what I saw was amazing. There was John, right in front of me on my computer screen and I knew he was going to make me feel like a woman again. After walking into his place of business, I was greeted by John himself and he told me I had come to the right place. He could not have been any nicer. I cannot begin to express how much better I feel about myself as a woman after what he has done for me. Not only did John tattoo my areola area, he also did work on my scars which made them look fantastic. I have more confidence now, so much that I want to show them to everyone because the work he has done is so tremendous!
I always tear up when I am there and thank him before I leave. I am sure John knows what he is doing for us women to gain our spirit back, and that is just one of the many things that makes him so special, his compassion for breast cancer survivors. John is the perfect artist and a great artist cannot paint a perfect painting in one day. John tells you up-front it will be a process that takes several visits, but believe me, it is well worth it. You will become John’s canvas and will become the perfect painting back into feeling and looking like a woman again. I was John’s canvas and he not only painted the perfect picture on my chest but in my heart and soul.
Thank you John, with gratefulness.
