October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. After going through a mastectomy, women are given the option of reconstructing their breast. For some who chose not to, tattooing something meaningful and beautiful in that space can be healing. P.ink is a non-profit made up of talented tattoo artists that are transforming the scars of survivors into art.

Whether you are in the thick of your battle with cancer, are a survivor, you are supporting someone, or have lost someone to cancer, a tattoo can be a way to express your feelings. Here are some creative and beautiful ideas. Urge the ladies that you love to take care of themselves and get regular check ups and breast exams.
