Mastectomy magnolias by allentattoo Mastectomy magnolias by allentattoo
I used magnolias used to conceal a 7" mastectomy scar. (over a saline implant)

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-27
Suggester says: "Mastectomy magnolias by ~allentattoo really caught my eye as I was browsing, and thought this was something that was worthy of a DD, even though it may not be the greatest shot, or the very best example of tattoo work out there. Theres a message in this I think that a lot of people will connect with. Not just for the delicate details of the tattoo itself, but also for the incredibly sympathetic handling of what can only be a very traumatic experience, a truly emotional and touching piece."

This woman had a mastectomy (she had her breast removed, most likely due to breast cancer.) She doesn't have a nipple because it was removed, what you see above is an implant.

The owner of my tattoo shop is a breast cancer survivor, so I see more than my share of these sorts of scars. this is a beautiful tattoo, and I will show it to any of the women that ask me to cover their scars...

How about googling "mastectomy". Mastectomy is when the bread is completely removed, it is usually performed on someone with breast cancer. So her nipple isn't there because it was removed due to possible breast damage, breast cancer, etc. Also the comment says she had a saline implant [that way when she wears clothes it looks like she is normal]

I agree with the beauty and classy comments. It's wonderful to know that people can take some parts of themselves and use them for art and to feel better about themselves after big and or tragic events like that.
