User feedback about Rub-On Nipples®

are a testament to their life-changing power.


I am 62 years old and had a double mastectomy and reconstruction a year ago. I found this site online and decided to try the temporary tattoos. WOW, I love this product. I really didn’t think having nipples on my Barbie boobs would make much of a difference, but  they do. As a result of using this wonderful product for several months. I have decided to do the permanent tattoos. I have opted not to do the nipple reconstruction because I don’t want another surgery, but I do want nipples again. Thank you for helping me make my decision. If you would have told me these tattoos would have made this much difference in my outlook, I may have been skeptical. BUT, I am a firm believer in having nipples. YAY, for this company.  Beth

“…thank you for making me feel beautiful again.”  Ariel

“I am not ready to get the permanent tattoos just because I don’t want to mess with my boobs anymore. And now I am in no rush because I have the temporary Rub-On Nipples. I have gotten so used to having these on that I can’t go without them. They are part of my “getting ready” ritual for vacations and date nights, and just every day. I really love this product and it has helped me tremendously. ” Jules

“Based on my experience with Rub-On Nipples, I made the decision to have permanent tattooing done. This product made me comfortable with my decision, and since I had some leftover rub-ons I gave them to my permanent make-up artist to pass on to other women who are making the same decisions. I want to let you know how much I appreciated the temporary tattoos. I can’t tell you how much your product has made a difference for me!”  Laura

“It is AMAZING how much better Rub-On Nipples make me feel.  I’m coming up on one year since my BLM and reconstruction and my scars are still so dark and raised.  Having something like the temporary tattoos really tricks the eye so you don’t notice the scars as much.  Well worth it just to feel better when you catch a glimpse of yourself before a shower or while getting dressed.  Thank you so much for creating this product!!”  Jennifer

“These tattoos are great!  After 2.5 years of my Barbie Boobs — in my thirties — it’s nice to kind of look “normal” — it’s made a huge difference for me and my husband! Jules

“Unless you have lived through a mastectomy/reconstruction.. there are no words to express what a little rub on nipple can add to your life!” Linda

“Rub-On Nipples have helped with my recovery and have filled the void until I have my nipple reconstruction in a couple of months.”  Bahja

“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.  Thank you so much for offering this product! I am also telling all my friends! You are doing a wonderful thing.”  Ariel

“I wanted to tell you how much I love the tattoos. When I showed my husband he had to touch them before he realized that they were flat.  So nice to have “faces” instead of blank blobs!  Jeanne”I did not think it would make that much difference in how I look but it makes a huge difference! My husband agrees! ”  Susan

“I’ve shown a couple of my friends at work (women nurses that have seen me through thick and thin) and they were very impressed!”  Jeannie

“I completed reconstruction with implants last December and I am not quite ready to have permanent tattoos done . Searched high and low for rub on tattoos and found your site this week. My rub ons were delivered today and are awesome!! Now I don’t feel pressured to get permanents unless I really want to. Thanks so much for this great product!!”  Linda

“I really would have liked to have had them with the expanders as I had a fairly natural shape. During the chemo and all I think I would have felt better about my appearance if I had known about them. ”   Susan

“I am really feeling good especially when I get a glimpse in the mirror as I dress, and see nipples instead of that down feeling I got when I saw none.”   Jeanne

“I am so excited to find your site!! I have been debating on this for some time about nipples or just a tattoo. I don’t feel quite complete but don’t want big lumps showing through my tee- shirts. I bought some stick on plastic ones and they are way too  apparent under anything, so I am looking forward to wearing these temporary nipples! Your site is cheerful and fun. Just what we need after the long journey. Thank you so much!  Susan

“Thanks for sending the rub on tattoos.. It is really amazing what a difference the appearance is! Wow, I was getting used to the “blank look” and was very hesitant to do any more surgery  or tattoo. Now I know for sure. I am going to skip the nipple surgery, I do not need big “cold” bumps. These temporary nipples are a huge help to us women not able to decide. Thank you again for such a wonderful tool to use! You are awesome!   Susan

“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 tattoos I know now that I will definitely have the permanent tattoos done.” Sue

“Thanks for sending the two new colors for me to try out!  I have tried the rosey one which was a bit too red and now I am trying the extra light barely there and think they are bit too light.  But, I have a feeling the medium peachy tan ones will be good!  I think they are a great concept and have really helped me see what it will look like when I get my final tattoos.  It’s nice to play around with these and test out the colors!!  It really does put a nice finished look on things.  Thanks so much!!   Carrie

“I would prefer just wearing rub-ons forever once I find the right color.”  Jeanne

“I have been deciding whether or not to do the nipple reconstruction, and I thought seeing the tattoos on would help me with the decision.  It did, and Wednesday I had my nipple reconstruction. ” Darlene

I ordered my first set of rub-on nipples the week before my mastectomy and it made the feeling of loss for my breast a little bit easier. When I first put one on three weeks later, it made a huge difference in how I saw myself and I haven’t been without one on since then. My doctor loves them! She laughed out loud the first time she saw the rub-on tattoo and has recommended your website and the rub-on tattoos to other patients. I’m a minor celeb at her office because of these — but more, I feel better about myself and my husband tells me it’s very flattering.

My husband was a bit skeptical when I ordered the rub on nipples, but he sure changed his opinion when I put them on. We both thought they look great and will be a big help when choosing a color for the permanent tattoo.

I am thrilled to find this site but I hope they will work as I have had the nipple reconstruction, just have not gotten around to have the tattooing done. So, it is not a completely flat surface. Anyway, I have placed my order and can’t wait. My boyfriend has not seen that part of my body in almost a year so I’m really hoping this will make me feel confident again about my appearance.
