Alison posted the above photo with the caption: "And the finished artwork by Makkala Rose. 13 hours, one sitting. #freethenipple just kidding, no nipple!"

Alison Habbal, from Sydney, was diagnosed with breast cancer at 36 years old. Following surgery, she opted to cover her scarring with a beautiful tattoo. In an interview with BBC, she said: "I didn't want a fake nipple made from some other piece of flesh. I thought I'm just going to get a tattoo."

After having received this gorgeous new tattoo from artist Makkala Rose, the pictures on Alison's Instagram are generating a huge reaction. In the same interview, tattooist Makkala discusses the challenges of tattooing this sensitive area: "tattooing a breast is quite different to tattooing a leg or a back or something. It's a bit challenging to design something that would fit and work around it."
