Mastectomies is a surgical procedure where a part or all of a breast is removed to treat breast cancer. The use of tattoos to mark the scars are part of a growing trend for women to reclaim what was lost. The benefits are not only physical as the tattoos aid patients psychologically, helping women feel like they are beautiful and back in control.
The P.Ink (“Personal Ink”) project has helped tattoo artists connect with women who want to tattoo their mastectomy scars. One such tattoo artist, David Allen, had some inspirational words; “I’ll never forget it. What was clinical became beautiful again… we turned sterile into sensual. We took back control.”
This is also a beautiful example of how tattoos can have a positive impact on people’s lives!
