Many thanks to the amazing artists and volunteers at the P.ink Charleston event hosted by Blu Gorilla Tattoo and to Liza Malia Photography for capturing these beautiful images.

#pinktattooday
After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in cis women. When it comes to the breast cancer statistics, about 1 in 8 will get breast cancer. Itโ€™s also the second deadliest type of cancer for cis women. Over 240,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the U.S. and 40,000 people die from the disease.

Getting regular breast cancer screenings is one of the most important things you can do to keep your breasts healthy. Itโ€™s important to follow your doctor or nurseโ€™s recommendations for how often you should get a breast health check up.

I had the honor of documenting the final step in the healing process for four #breastcancersurvivors

Thanks to Personal Ink - P.INK and the generous time of the artists at Blu Gorilla Tattoo, four #survivors were able to finally close the book on their disease and cover up their scars with beautiful #healingtattoos

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Today is a day to honor all soldiers who laid the ultimate sacrifice upon the alter of freedom. Those dear souls will live forever in our hearts as a reminder that freedom isnโ€™t free. Men and women put there lives on the line the second they sign the enlistment papers and do it anyways. #blugorilla #charleston #charlestonlife #lowcountry #lowcountryliving #love #navy #army #airforce #marines #nationalguard #13bravo #blugorillatattoo #collegeofcharleston #citadel #traditionalart #traditionaltattoo #localbusiness #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner
