When cancer stole my left breast, with areola included, I felt like a freak and a monster.
I had one tit cut off, I was deformed, I felt ugly.
Once the reconstruction had been done I decided I needed some way to love and accept myself as I was.
I needed someway to tell myself that I am perfect just the way I am.
And so instead of getting a tattoo of a realistic nipple that looked the same as my right real nipple.
I decided to turn them both into hearts.
And yes, it does kinda look like I was born a burlesque dancer or a porn star 🤣
But I don’t care, I’ve declared true love to myself on my breasts.
The left one didn’t hurt because there’s no flesh there anymore, just an implant and a thin cover of skin.
The right one hurt like hell!
(apologies for swearing in the video)
But it was worth the pain.
I’m not suggesting you go get heart-shaped tattoos.
But I am suggesting you love and accept yourself just the way you are.
If you went through cancer then you owe it to yourself to just be kind and loving to you for the rest of your life.
Enough suffering okay?
Whether it’s wonky tits, wonky testicles, scars or whatever else.
Just love you.
Cancer misfits rock 😎
