Me and my heart-shaped nipples.

I had to have my left breast cut off because of cancer.

I wish I could describe how it feels to voluntarily agree to have a part of your body cut off because you don't want to die. Or worse yet as a woman to voluntary have your breast removed. It's barbaric, soul destroying, horrific, traumatic and well beyond f*cked up.

The breast surgeon saved my life when she cut off my left breast that was full of stage three cancer... but she also took my femininity from me, my confidence, my sensuality, my sexy, my self.

Having tattooed hearts as nipples was my way of getting all those things back.

It was my way of reclaiming my beauty, my sensuality, my confidence, my sexy and most importantly my love for myself.

Yes, I do look like a stripper and I'm okay with that.

I have happy tits, one of a kind tits, I have tits that symbolise my individuality, my courage, that I lived through breast cancer.

I have tits that say cancer tried to ruin my body but I said no, and took my body back.
