Breast Cancer Survivors Get Beautiful Tattoos Over Mastectomy Scars
These women are spreading the word and raising the profile of cancer in people's minds and in the world's media. Please note: this video has emotional and graphic content. While our intention is to tell a beautiful story, the content – showing mastectomy scars and reconstructed breasts – can make some uncomfortable.
For some breast cancer survivors, losing their breasts was the only option. For a woman, that is a devastating loss. One tattoo artist is on a mission to help them turn their grief into confidence and hope through beautiful tattoos.
P.ink was founded with a simple mission, to provide another option for women who had lost their breasts to breast cancer. P.ink was created to cover their scars with beautiful art. They are to serve as reminders that they are survivors, warriors and to never give up.
Now, after bringing 106 mastectomy tattoos to life, the organization continues to expand across North America for survivors everywhere. Through donations survivors can book time with the artists to transform their wounds into warrior marks!
