Breast Cancer Question

Nipple tattoo...pros/cons?

Has anyone had their reconstructed nipple tattooed? If so, are you pleased with the result? I am planning to get mine done, but recently saw a friends which looked kind of strange...it was kind of spotty, unlike a real areola (and we use the same plastic surgeon). I don't like it looking white, but not sure if it's worth getting the tattoo.
