Hi everyone
I had a double masectomy and sentinel node clearance  last year and breast reconstruction this year. I chose to have my nipples removed and no reconstruction.
I was wondering if anyone has had or thought about tattooing to cover up the scars?

    Definitely! I have screen shotted dozens of IG posts of mastectomy tattoos that I like. And some that I think are downright hilarious! I really want to get some but it'll be a while before I can and I may change my mind. I hope I don't, I reckon it would be so cool. What are you thinking of getting? K xox

    Hi kmakm
    What is IG?
    Ive been thinking about cherry blossum branches as the Japanese believe they represent beauty and fragility of life. 
    I need to find a tattooist specialising in scars.
