Cancer and Tattoos... share you ink (or your inky plans)

Cara-CanTeen

Hey crew, Cara here from the Online team... happy Friday!

So a lil while back in Newcastle NSW, we had an exhibition at one of our hospitals (organised by the Youth Cancer Service), showcasing some of the tattoos young people had done to signify their cancer experience, cover up scars from treatment, or commemorate a milestone. You can read a bit about it here: https://www.calvarycare.org.au/blog/2016/03/17/young-cancer-survivors-tattoo-photo-exhibition/

Since working for CanTeen, I've met lots of you who have used permanent ink in this way too. I'm guessing there's quite a few of you out there with a tattoo that's linked to your cancer story... and I thought it's be great to share it here!

Show us a photo (or a drawing of what you're planning for one-day-in-the-future), and tell us why it means something to you.
