“3D” Nipple & Areola Tattooing is a method that is used to create an image of a nipple on the skin with dimensional shading within the pigment of the tattoo ink. This technique adds visual realism to the coloration used to restore the nipple pigment.
When Nipple Sparing Mastectomy isn’t an option or breast reconstruction takes place at a time after mastectomy (“delayed reconstruction”), the newly reconstructed breast can be completed with the recreation of the nipple as the finishing touch. This new and innovative way is used after a mastectomy to restore feminine form.
The newly applied nipple image isn’t actually palpable and is flat to the touch. For the restoration of the nipple with both a physical and visual element of realism
Many of our patients have benefited from Honor and Grace Tattoo to provide the benefit of nipple & areola pigment application.

Born in Columbus, Georgia, Kelly Borders has been tattooing since late 2005. After completing a traditional tattoo apprenticeship in West Georgia, she spent a short time in New Orleans, which led to spending a year in Charleston, South Carolina. Wanting to do more custom, large scale work, she made her way to The Hostess City, and then in 2019, Honor & Grace was born! The mission at Honor & Grace is to provide the most exceptional tattoo experience in the low country and to tailor that experience to the individual needs of our clients. Kelly recognized the need for a place where people could find healing in all aspects of their lives with a focus on helping women end their cancer journey on a happy note. A place where all are welcomed into a warm, inviting, safe space where I can showcase my skill at tattooing. An environment where you feel honored and shown grace from when you walk in the door to when your experience is over.
Rhonda is the Patient Liaison /Operations Manager of Honor and Grace and has worked with Kelly for 5 years in various roles. She graduated summa cum laude from Georgia Southern University, pursuing a joint Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and Sociology. She is currently completing her Masters in Public Health with plans to graduate in spring 2021. Rhonda has always had a passion for working with underserved and women's populations and is a kindred spirit with Kelly in the desire to provide a place where women - and specifically cancer survivors- can feel that their challenges are simply chapters in life they have overcome. Her background allows her to forge relationships with these strong, beautiful women while sharing hugs, tears, and laughs as they take this final step in their healing journey.
This duo has big plans for the future! Their goal is to begin taking steps to form a non-profit with a focus on this incredible population of women in order to provide education, support, and resources for moving forward feeling empowered.
