As we approach the end of October we would like to remind everyone to do a self breast exam every month and an annual mammogram especially if you have a family history of breast cancer! As many of you know this cause holds a special place in our hearts here at Love N Hate. Every year we try and help anyone that may be looking to get their scars covered from post mastectomy or reconstruction surgery. In helping out and listening to their stories we had three wonderful ladies agree to do an interview with us and let us know about their journey with breast cancer. We would like to share their stories to possibly give anyone courage that might be going through this awful disease now. You can see that interview on our YouTube channel LnH Tattoo Studio (click here) to watch their stories.
We have reached out to different places to offer our services with not much luck. We would love to continue doing this every year and help out more people. If you know of someone that may be interested in having their scars covered or simply getting areola and nipples tattooed please have them reach out to us. If you work for a surgeon that specializes in mastectomies and or breast reconstruction surgery, we would be more than happy to send out our business cards to their office if they are interested in having them available to their patients. Submissions can be sent in directly to our email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks again to the wonderful ladies that agreed to be interviewed and shared their stories with us. Give your loved ones an extra tight hug today, in a blink of an eye our lives can instantly change.
As we come to the end of the month of October, we would like to thank everyone that helped out in this event. To the wonderful ladies that came in to have a beautiful piece done by one of our amazing artists and to friends and family that received one of our flash tattoos to show their support for the cause. Thank you to our artist that donated their time to give back to our clients.
The pressure was on for our artists to design art pieces for these ladies that have gone through so much. Coming up with the perfect design was not easy but these artists stepped up to the challenge. Each one of them were able to hear the clients experience throughout the whole process which made the piece that much more special. They all may have had different struggles but it was great to see they were all here, together with the same purpose and that was to get that final puzzle piece.
It takes a few minutes to do a self exam once a month, early detection is important for the best outcome. You do not have to have a family history of breast cancer but know that your odds nearly double if you do have a first-degree relative that was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although women are more likely to get breast cancer this doesn’t mean men cannot, so be sure to also do a self exam! Many insurance companies cover a yearly mammogram, but in the case they do not there are many programs out there that help you obtain a mammogram at low cost or free. We have decided to donate all proceeds we made from the event this year to the “Women’s Mobile Clinic” which offer programs that help you get a mammogram.
Thanks again to everyone that was involved with this event. We hope to be able to do this every year and help more women cover up their scars or simply get a realistic nipples done. If you know anyone that would love to have these services done send them our way for a spot next year. Those of you that didn’t get to come in this year for our flash tattoos or the cover-ups keep an eye out for our event next year. Follow us on our social media to keep up with all our events through Facebook and Instagram.
Next month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Love N Hate would love to give back! Gabe lost his mother 15 years ago due to this terrible disease therefore this cause means a lot to him. We are looking for ladies and gentlemen that have gone through a mastectomy and reconstruction and are looking to close that chapter in their lives. Whether you are looking to cover up the scars or have realistic nipples done, we would like to offer that service to you free of charge.

We will have a couple of artist that will be offering small flash tattoos that day as well. These tattoos will be first come first serve for $30 each and all proceeds will go to a local charity.
