Woman whose tattoo was moved from stomach to her boob begs for help to fix it
When Angela was in her early 20s she absolutely loved her Spice Girls tattoo.
Like many young women in the 1990s, she had had the Eastern symbol inked onto her stomach.
It's meaning – girl power, a mantra Angela would need in the coming years.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and needed all her strength to fight the disease so she could stay alive for her young daughter, Ruby.
Angela explained: "I lost a lot of weight and I said to my husband' I should be getting fatter', so I went to the doctors and he told me I had breast cancer."
The mum needed a mastectomy and surgeons reconstructed her breast during the operation.
But they needed to use skin from her stomach to create her new boob – and the area her tattoo covered had to be moved to her breast.
Angela said: "The surgeon did tell me that some of the tattoo could move and asked me if I was bothered.
"I told him it could end up on my face if it meant I was cancer free."
Gruelling chemotherapy followed where Angela lost her hair.
She said: "The worst thing is having to ring your family and tell them you have breast cancer.
"It really wasn't nice for Ruby, she was really freaked out because I was sick and bald."
But six years on, Angela is unhappy with the unusual place her tattoo has ended up.
So she calls on the help of Channel 4's Tattoo Fixers to complete her cancer journey.
Angela has chosen Pash as the man she wants to cover up her symbol and replace it with "something flowery and pretty".
He admits it's the "most unique cover up I've ever had to do".
Pash doesn't disappoint and an emotional Angela is delighted with the results.
She says: "It's fabulous – thank you. No more ugly boob.
"It's the end of a journey – the ugliness of cancer and the beautiful flower."
Tattoo Fixers is on E4 every Wednesday at 9pm.
