Mastectomies can be life saving procedures that either lower the risk of breast cancer or help treat it however the scars that they leave behind can be damaging both physically and psychologically. For some the solution to this has been to get beautiful tattoos.
Thanks to a website called P.Ink, women who have mastectomy scars have been able to get in contact with talented tattoo artists who have helped them turn their scars into beautiful works of art. The result is that the women have been able to take back control and feel comfortable with who they are. For more information head to p-ink.org.
