…a stunning tattoo by American tattoo artist Tina Bafaro on client Molly Ortwein who had undergone a double mastectomy as a result of breast cancer. The silver lining could be that in banning this image the book of face has brought it, and its associated themes, to a far wider audience than would otherwise have been possible (and done nothing to enhance its own reputation).

A stark reminder of the importance of freedom of expression, information and individualism.
