Brits and their tits. A new fad sweeping Liverpool and invading Essex is nipple tattooing, or what they’re calling “tittooing.” The ladies of Liverpool are darkening and redefining their breast toppers with ink, enlarging and sharpening their areolas. What originated as a medical procedure for breast reconstruction has been turned into yet another crass cosmetic vanity. The semi-permanent treatment gives women so-called “perfect nipples” in a two-hour procedure which can cost up to £1,200 for both nipples, and lasts around 12 to 18 months. The nipples are made to look natural by matching ink colors to skin tones, which are then shaded and tattooed onto the anaesthetised nipple. Several weeks after the procedure, the process is repeated to restore fading and add finishing touches. An independent clinician in Liverpool, who claims to tattoo the nips of more than three women a week, says, ”A lot of people want their nipples made darker. It’s the fashion. Some people think theirs are too pink or their boyfriends want them done. I think sometimes they are doing it because they are conscious of them being pale and they think it’s fashionable to have dark nipples.” Meanwhile, ouch! and what about us men? (via thetelegraph)

Apparently, though, it’s the possum-fur nipple warmers that are the premium shit in New Zealand. $58 per nipple! (via Reddit)
Jezebel asks, “What type of nipple are you?” Normal, flat, puffy, short, long, inverted grade1, grade 2, or grade 3?
