Fuck. You. Tumblr.
Post-mastectomy images are explicitly allowed on Tumblr. A woman posted a series of photos about post-surgery breast tattoos. It was flagged, banned, appealed, "reviewed' and banned again. Even though Tumblr's policy allows these photos

After some trial and error, we have identified the censored image (at the bottom of these long damn post that I refuse to cut tag).

Scars from breast cancer can be both hard to hide and embarrassing for some women. I wish they weren’t, because scars mean you’re a fighter and a bad ass.

Women have told me after their mastectomy they felt self conscious about someone seeing their chest. My grandmother wore her false breast (she had only one boob removed) around even the house for a long time. (Of course, now when we were taking about the procedure she asked “want to see my boob?” And had to go fetch it from the other room. It was an interesting conversation to say the least.)

Anyway, breast reconstruction can be expensive, and some women either don’t want it or can’t have it done for various reasons.

But you know what, chest tattoos are easily accessible. There are even tattoo shops that give discounts to women covering up breast cancer scars. And women who no longer have a nipple? You can get a bad ass tattoo

You can donate to the organization, or if you know a tattoo artist you can let them know they accept volunteers to be a part of their community of artists. 

Here is another bad ass lady and her bad ass tattoo (found on Pinterest)

Tumblr:  Only double mastectomy pictures allowed. If you still have a breast better make certain that nipple is slanted in the other direction or is modestly veiled.
