So many of my clients have undergone treatment for cancer.
After they have completed their treatment. Or in some cases where they will never finish treatment, (but with their oncologists approval). They make the decision to come to me to get their eyebrows back with Microblading.
They say, ‘I’m in remission but every time I look in the mirror I’m reminded that I have had cancer because I have no eyebrows. Getting eyebrows puts a line under that journey.
But what does this have to do with boobs?
I have lost count of the amount of times when I am mid treatment and my client is talking about her cancer journey.
She has had a mastectomy and a reconstruction and she grabs my hand and puts it on her boob. She says “don’t they feel real” or “look they don’t move” whilst doing a jiggle and very often “my husband loves them”
The first time it happened I didn’t know what to do.
Now it is part of my working day. I am proud that they are so comfortable me.
One day I felt 3 sets of boobs. Another lady lifted her shirt to show off her brand new boobs soon after she walked into the treatment room.
I often wonder what people will think if they walk in and see me with a hand on my clients boobs.
Why do I keep grabbing boobs?
These wonderful, brave women are so excited, joyful. To be past all the treatments, the surgeries, chemo the radiation the fear.
They are proud of themselves, they are celebrating and they want to share the joy and the boobs.
