P.Ink Tattoos Help Survivors Reclaim Their Lives
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.
Most of us are either directly impacted or know someone affected by breast cancer. In recognition of this ongoing battle, OnlyGood.tv will be sharing several stories throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to shed light on how individuals and families are coping with this disease.
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. Noel Franus founded the organization after his sister-in-law suffered from the disease and asked a tattoo artist to help her afterwards, instead of a plastic surgeon.
P.ink was created to supply women who had mastectomy's with other options by covering their chest with beautiful art. They serve as reminders that they are survivors, warriors, and will never give up.
Noel is amazed by the transformation that happens after just a few hours with the tattoo artist. "They want to go run around the block topless now after the tattooing is done," he reflected. "There is nothing that can beat that!"
Now, after bringing 50+ mastectomy tattoos to life, the organization continues to expand across North America for survivors everywhere. They currently work with a small network of 15 pre-screened artists in different cities who are supported through donations. Survivors can book time with the artists to transform their wounds into warrior marks!
"Breast cancer doesn't have to leave the last mark."
