For many women today, a mastectomy is a life-changing procedure. In one respect, it is the surgical operation that removes the potentially fatal breast tissue. In the other, it causes many women to be insecure about their bodies and the scars that remain.
Every woman selects the method or methods of recovery that best suit them. For some, mastectomy tattoos are the chosen outlet for embracing their femininity and feeling whole again.
While some of these brave warriors choose breast reconstruction or 3D nipple tattoos, many opt for double mastectomy tattoos or a mastectomy scar tattoo instead. These tattoos cover the wounds of the battle against breast cancer.
Garnet Tattoo is happy to provide mastectomy tattoo designs for the survivors, which further stand as a tribute to the 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. today.
