In 2017, I decided to start a chapter of my own in Portland. With the help of Michelle Borgese, we began to build a team to help local breast cancer survivors heal through the beauty of art: with tattoos.
Meet the team from left to right: Jacqueline Davis (Survivor Relations Specialist); Shy Allot (Producer); Michelle Borgese (Co-Leader); Me (Co-Leader); Gabriela Narvaez (Creative Director); Lucia Estrada (Community Manager); Matt McVeigh (Lead Designer) Not featured: Carli Davidson (Photographer)
Together, the team created a Portland Chapter. First we found a local tattoo parter: Carrie Smith of New Rose Tattoo.
Then we found 4 wonderful survivors and helped change their lives. All photos by Carli Davidson
Special thanks to all our donators and artists.
We also made items to help support funding. Special thanks to illustrators Holly Stout and Laura Trimmell.
The social media we created so that our fans could stay in touch.
