SURVIVORS Ink, a not for profit charity organisation, will be in Bathurst on August 10, offering breast cancer survivors realistic nipple tattooing, free of charge.
Peter Bone, from Survivors Ink said the charity acknowledges and respects the magnitude of issues that a woman must face in the recovery phase of her breast cancer.
"Unfortunately, cancer doesn't stop affecting lives at the completion of treatment; so many survivors continue to experience emotional and financial hardship as a result of their cancer treatment."
He said many survivors are unable to consider cosmetic tattooing due to costs, which is why Survivors Ink provides nipple tattooing free of charge, with the aim of ensuring empowerment, competition and emotional recovery is attainable to breast cancer survivors all around Australia.
Mandy Wilding, from Daffodil Wig Library, said it was an amazing opportunity for survivors to access such a specialised service, free of charge.
"We need at least seven ladies to make it worthwhile for Survivors Ink to come to the area.
"To think they provide this free of charge is totally amazing."

Troy Tilley, owner of Devine Gallery said hew was delighted to support the program.
"I think it's brilliant, and it's a great way for me to be able to give back," he said.
Mr Tilley said his tattoo studio was a perfect location for Survivors Ink to work, with its individual cubicles providing complete privacy.
