There’s no denying that mastectomy tattoos can be both beautiful, inspired and badass. For many women affected by breast cancer, it’s the last step in their mastectomy and breast reconstruction journey, and a symbolic ritual that empowers them to move into the next chapter of their lives. By adorning their bodies in a personal design after their breast cancer diagnosis and surgeries, they are taking back their power and starting over. These post-mastectomy tattoos serve as a form of self-expression that helps restore confidence that may have been lost throughout their mastectomy and/or reconstructive process. What’s most important, is that you do what makes you feel most confident and comfortable in your skin, and that builds your confidence and love for your body after breast surgery and mastectomy.
