Tattoos are, in my opinion, defacing your body. They're ugly and my impression when I see someone with a tattoo I am totally turned away. Yes, you're proud that you're a cancer survivor, but why do you feel the need to mark it on your body for life? I am a cancer survivor too and I fought hard to win. It was a hard battle but it's not something that I am proud of. I hate cancer, period. I am happy I kicked it's rear, but there's no way I'd wear a tattoo to remind me of the ordeal. It did not define me in any way. I define me. Is cancer only who are you now? Aren't you more than what cancer has defined you? If so....It's limiting. Time to move on and live, not live in shadow of cancer because if you do then you'll always will limit yourself to one experience and that's so one diminensional.
