Not one much for tattoos (mine are scars on my face from a long ago car wreck), but yours does look kinda cool. Maybe one with the Reaper shedding tears would be just as cool.

I like it, how long you been a survivor.

The date starts from the day you were told "you have cancer"

I am not into tattoo's either but I did get the one shown

With my tattoo I wanted to have the maroon and ivory colors. I like it but the colors have lost their power.

Congrats on your survivorship and look forward to seeing you here on CSN for many years to come.

did you go back to where you got youre tattoo and tell them about the colors? most reputable shops offer free touch ups. I have alot of tattoos and after the healing they dont always look perfect so m y guy touches them up and they look great.

The lighter colors do tend to fade fast, especially in an area that gets hit with a lot of sun light.

But like mentioned, most places can go over the colors again.

Best,
John

I was told to check back if I was not happy with how it turned out. I was just unsure how long I needed to wait. Today it's only a month so I am sure I will go back at some point in a couple weeks.

I'm getting very close to getting one myself...

I'm still either thinking of the "FAITH" one or the Phoenix one in my expressions. I think I just might get one this summer which will mark the two year mark post treatment. I've actually reached the two year mark since originally diagnosed by close to two months.

Best,
John
