Pink Ribbon Tattoos

In support of breast cancer awareness and in memory of those who have lost their battles, many women choose to get tattoos depicting the universal symbol of breast cancer awareness -- the pink ribbon.

Survivors

Breast cancer awareness tattoos

According to the American Cancer Society, at this time there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment. Beautiful pink ribbon tattoos are inked on some of those amazing survivors.

Tattoos for a cause

During October, many tattoo studios across the nation offer free breast cancer awareness tattoos, or they donate a portion of their proceeds for the month to breast cancer awareness. If you're considering getting a tattoo, check with the studios in your area to see if they're taking part in such a campaign.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society's series of walking events to raise funds and awareness to end breast cancer. Every year, more than 270 of these walks take place each month. Learn how you can take part in the Making Strides walks or otherwise help at makingstrides.acsevents.org.

Quick tip

If you aren't quite ready to make a commitment to a tattoo, consider a temporary pink ribbon tattoo to show your support for the cause.

This site inspired me, my mother is 84 stage 5 breast cancer. Mom said she never thought she would go out this way!! To honor my mom I got my very first pink ribbon tatoo on the inside of my right wrist... Every day I will see this tatoo, and every day I will think of my mom.

This is indeed a powerful way to show your support for the cause. However, if you're not ready to make the permanent commitment of a tattoo, you can use temporary breast cancer awareness tattoos and still show your support, they're great for fundraising and special events. I found some you can download for free here... http://breastcancerbraceletshq/free-breast-cancer-tattoos
