7 Sep Michelle Cole, 42, of Leeds, got a tattoo of a lacy bra over her reconstructed breasts to mark five years since her double mastectomy, which helped her to beat breast cancer. 20 Oct Judy Lawrence, 53, from Washington State, US, hated her scarred breasts. After having them tattooed, which took 8 hours, her body confidence has soared. The tattoo is going to be large-ish, on my right shoulder blade. I already have a couple of tattoos (one on my leg, one on my bicep) so I know what to expect with regards to the general healing process but the placement of this one tomorrow will absolutely interfere with my ability to wear my normal bra until it.
