I got this tattoo in memory of my father who I lost 5 years ago to this beast. He was 54. He loved music, partying, cars and Elvis. On a daily basis I inform anyone I meet about the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. From my purple purses, shoes, clothing and jewelry always get asked you must like purple. I am the walking billboard for the Milwaukee Affiliate. #ShowUsYourPurple www.facebook.com/...
Done by Kristin at Artisanal Tattoo in Somerville, NJ. Daffodils are my favorite flower. They are also the symbol of hope for a cure to the American Cancer Society, which is important to me since my mother, grandmother, grandfather, and uncle have all passed away from cancer. Definitely my favorite tattoo so far.
I’ve wanted this tattoo for probably 3 years and I finally went and did it and couldn’t be happier with it. My aunt passed away from breast cancer and my family started a foundation in her memory and its a big part of my life. I got it in Maspeth NY at True Blue Tattoo by Brian.
I got this tattoo in memory of my grandmother who passed away four years ago due to brain and lung cancer. The rose represents four generations of women in my family and how amazing they are. Rose was my great grandmother’s name, and it is my middle name. All through my child hood all my gifts would be themed with roses, because they made me smile. The writing “All Our Love” was handwritten by my grandma, in the last card she wrote me before she passed away.
