Becky Barker aims to create awareness around how important tattooing can be for the healing process.

Why you should listen

Becky Barker is a friendly, bubbly, experienced tattoo artist with a big heart.

Focussing on empowering those that have been through breast cancer with nipple tattoos, Barker works closely with A.R.T who are on a mission to raise the standards in this work. She is also a trustee for NIP, a charity that helps fund this procedure and create awareness surrounding the choice people have.  

In 2019, she began a global mission to share the voice of those that had received nipple tattoo who were disappointed with the results, to highlight how big a responsibility this work is and how much of an effect on peoples quality of life a tattoo can have.

Tattoos are important for individual identity and therefore empowerment, and the act of tattooing is ingrained in every culture throughout history.
