Nipple Tattoo? Do I Have Other Options?

Had left mastectomy done in 2007 with reconstruction and b/l silicone implants.Last step nipple tattoo. Is there anything else that can be used instead of going through tatto.(cosmetic makeup) I developed cc x5 on right breast and went through 5 surgerys for it so I do not want to take chance of getting another infection. I went through HELL with my CC problems. After silicine implants put in I read it is a good idea to have MRI after 2 years to make sure everything is ok. Is that correct? TY

The risk of infection after medical tattooing is extremely low.  But if you are concerned, the only other option is make-up.
