What is 3-Dimensional tattooing for nipple reconstruction in breast reconstruction?

Either in lieu of a formal nipple areolar reconstruction or in terms of augmenting a reconstructed nipple, tattoo artists can add effects such as various shades and darker ‘shadow’ areas next to a nipple tattoo to cause the effect of a ‘3-dimensional’ tattoo. It is certainly a thought, though may not be covered by all insurance plans.
