I have a sternum tattoo (under my boobs, curving by the crease) how will this affect my Breast Implants/Augmentation? (photo)

Will augmentation affect my tattoo on my chest?
Cool Tattoo. I place all my implants through a crease incision directly in the new crease down from the nipple and just below or lateral to a line down from your inner areola. This is the area in the fold that is most covered by your new breast volume. Your tattoo may be expanded a little with your augmentation but with it's location should be largely unchanged depending on the size of the implant chosen. Best. drb
Tatto not on the breast, should not be affected by augmentation

Since the incision in most breast augmentation procedures are placed under the nipples then your tattoo will not be affected, though it may be expanded a little as expected with the stretch of your skin after the augmentation procedure.
Thank you for your question. You are starting with good anatomy and it doesn't look as though your folds would be intentionally lowered. When you explain your goals and concerns with an experienced Plastic Surgeon you should expect to be reassured that your Tattoo and breasts will look the way you want.
All the best
