Cancer sucks, so get a tat

remix 2

For this remix, I immediately decided to do breast cancer. Not only is the ribbon instantly recognizable, but it’s a cancer that runs in my family. So, what to do with the ribbon?

At first, I debated replacing the ‘O’ in ‘NO’ with the ribbon, but decided in the end that it wasn’t central enough. That’s when I realized that the pupil was also pretty round-shaped, and there you go- the ribbon replaced the pupil. Honestly, I think that went really well; the ribbon is pretty much perfectly sized for where it’s at. Huh. Would you look at that.

The next step was dying everything pink, because the ribbon looked super out of place among all that black. I went through a few shades before I found one that a) was dark enough it would show up (hypothetically) on my skin (I’m a pasty white girl) and b) was light enough that you could still see the dark pink ribbon well on top of it. I mean, I don’t have to get the tattoo, so it turned out well. If I had to get this thing actually permanently on me, I’d scream. Or go blind.

All editing was done in Paint, per my usual.
