For the Many Women Who Have Lost So Much
by Abby Zimet
This tattoo of a breast cancer survivor after her mastectomy, which Ontario-based collective Custom Tattoo Design posted on their Facebook page, has gone viral after Facebook kept removing it, citing their often incomprehensible rules on obscenity - like breast cancer isn't obscene. In protest, Custom kept reposting it - "We feel this woman is both brave and strong" - to show support for her and others like her. Yes. Facebook may have given up.

6. So, here's a question.
Can she now go topless in public and if not, why not? Hmmmm. . .
Like those above, I'm not a fan of tatoos but this one is done REALLY well. Truly a work of art.
