    Hi Meg. I was browsing the net looking for a tattoo artist who would finish my breast reconstruction and your name popped up as someone searching ,too. I've waited almost a year to see how much the grafts would fade and fade they did. Did you have any luck finding someone to do this for you? I live in Orlando but would go within the state for help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Hope you are doing well after your journey. And a long one it's been but worth it.     Annabelle C.

    Meg, I have been following you every step of the way and have learned a great deal from your experience. I started my journey in June '07 and due to many complications have had to endure until Jan. 23rd when I will finally have the surgery to place the implants. I am ready and so is the bottle of pain pills! It is a long story of what the last year and a half has been and I hope no one ever has to go through my experience. I hope you are doing well now and be in touch to chat. Blessings and thanks.
