Has anyone had a tattoo since radiotherapy, lumpectomy and lymph node biopsy (no chemo)? I had the treatment on my left side which I’ve started my sleeve on. At the time my nurse told me I had extremely high risk of lymphedema should I continue my tattoo. It’s been a year and a half since treatment finished. I was thinking I could do an hour or two needle work to start with and see how it goes but any experience or advice from you guys would be much appreciated:)

Hi ,would be better posting your question in the moving forward after breast cancer section - you could also ask about this in the Ask the Nurses section .I will post you the links .Hope you manage to get it sorted .Jill x

Oh wow, Tattoos!!! I love tattoo! All the best for it. I hope it goes well

I am always scared of its pain. I am only relying on temporary ones.
