25 Positive And Powerful Mastectomy Tattoos
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancers for women. Each year, more than 1 million women of all ages are diagnosed with the disease.
They endure pain, treatments, side effects and surgeries, but also the look of the world on their life and body. Mastectomy is especially a painful ordeal. Some surgeries require the removal of the nipples or even the whole breasts, and they all leave scars, both on the chest and the soul. It is difficult to look at yourself in the mirror and don't recognize your body anymore. But breast cancer survivors are tough women. They fought and won, and now, to overcome their scars, they can count on the help of tattoo artists. Where plastic surgery often fails, tattoo artists can give a helpful hand by tattooing nipples with 3D effects and pieces of art giving their femininity, beauty and self confidence back to these gorgeous women. Tattooing over scars is not easy but possible: you can read more about this here. And breast cancer survivors and their close relations can rely on associations to put them in contact with tattoo artists, tattoo shops and photographers that would help them in the process.
