  1. I have many scars on my upper thighs from cutting. Crazy thing is I didn’t start that until I was 56, just a couple years ago. I was in a relationship with a narcissist and he ultimately destroyed everything inside me. The cutting took my mind off of myself and how much I hated me. Doing so much better now, I realized that his opinion is just one person’s, there’s too many people to listen to just one. So yes, I keep planning on getting them covered up, hopefully before next summer.

  2. Couple of years ago i was diagnosed with breast 🎀. No pain no symptoms just a normal mammogram, and my world crash. My pride was stripped away by cancer. This monster had snatched my face off. Im struggling but coping im hope to have a bra tattoo done when i can afford it where can i get a tattoo done for a reasonable price. 😫 🙏
