    For the past 40 years, October has been a month dedicated to breast cancer awareness. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly one in eight American women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. And contrary to popular belief, 85% of people who are diagnosed do not have a family history of breast cancer.

    A study published earlier this year revealed that Black women are 42% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. Early detection and advances in medicine are key to improving survival rates.

    As of 2020, there are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. Many people have transformed their challenging experiences into beautiful body art. It’s a permanent way to pay tribute to your fight or that of someone else. So, we rounded up a few breast cancer tattoos to get you inspired. Whether your breast cancer awareness involves getting tested, donating to survivor funds, or receiving treatment, we must never lose hope for a cure.
