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.

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.
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.
