Special Guest Speaker: Amy Black Tattoos & Pink Ink Fund
In 2011 Amy began specializing in nipple and areola repigmentation as part of the breast reconstruction process for patients post-mastectomy due to breast cancer or as a prophylactic measure. She also founded the Pink Ink Fund shortly after beginning nipple and areola tattooing in response to seeing clients concerned about costs and having no health insurance.
We hope you can join us to hear Amy speak to our group, which will include FORCE members from the Virginia Beach and Richmond groups!
