About Rub-On Nipples®

Rub-On Nipples® are temporary areola tattoos that last one to two weeks and are easily removed with rubbing alcohol. They look amazingly similar to three-dimensional permanent areola pigmentation, commonly called nipple tattoos.

Uses for Rub-On Nipples®

◊ Rub-On Nipples® fill the void for women going through breast reconstruction who are not yet ready for a permanent areola pigmentation procedure.

As you know, you cannot get permanent areola pigmentation until all of your procedures are completed. This is because the size and shape of the breast mound must be finalized before placement of a nipple tattoo can be accurately determined. The reconstruction process can take years for many women, especially when breast revisions are needed.

◊ Rub-On Nipples® are an option for those who do not plan areola complex reconstruction.

Many women stop short of fully completing the process because they are weary of procedures, leery of the tattoo process or just so exhausted from their journey. Rub-On Nipples™ offers a simple alternative for these women so that they can experience—temporarily—the soothing joy of this defining visual focus on their mounds.

◊ Rub-On Nipples® serve as a practice tool for color and placement for those considering or planning permanent areola pigmentation. 

Many are nervous about getting a permanent tattoo—concerned that they will dislike the end result. Rub-On Nipples® make the decision for permanent tattooing easier.

So, if you have bare mounds, please order Rub-On Nipples® and see for yourself how different it feels not to have a blank canvas anymore! You owe it to yourself after all you have been through!

I just wanted to tell everyone that I have just used the Rub-On Nipples™ and they are AMAZING! Extremely easy to use–literally took me minutes to put on. I was on the fence about whether I would get nipples/areola–BUT in using these temporary tatoos I know now that I will definately have the tattoos done. Just registered on this website so that I can find someone close to my home to have it done. I’m very excited and looking forward to getting it done.

I just used the Rub-On Nipples, and they are wonderful! I have been looking to “try” a nipple for some time and this was a perfect solution. They made me feel beautiful and put a smile on my face within seconds. I would definitely give them a try! Thank you so much for offering this product!
