A growing number of clients are breast cancer survivors dealing with mastectomies. Tattoo artist Kerry Soraci typically works with three or four breast cancer survivors every month, the St Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

The American Cancer Society says more than one-third of women with early-stage breast cancer opt for a mastectomy, and the number of women who choose to have a healthy breast removed as a preventive measure has tripled in the past decade.

Soraci, 49, can blend an infinite combination of pinks and browns to complement skin tone, and use shading and highlights for a three-dimensional illusion. Theresa Schwartz found out about Soraci a couple of years ago and sends her clients there. Soraci, who has a degree in fine arts from Washington University, finds fulfillment helping women figure out how they want to look and feel in their new bodies.
