I suffer from this autoimmune disease alopceia areata. No where as serious as mine comes and goes. This is a beautiful captivating story. Great work . I hope you don't mind but her last tattoo saying if I use it as apart of my next tattoo it sums up the struggle it is perfectly.

I use mine to tell my story, give me confidence, and keep me company, and gives me voice when I'm normally quiet. I don't have a physical illness but I do have things wrong that make life harder and will be my constant enemy and companion til I die. I loved your little tale it was poigent and well expressed, thank you for sharing it.

I'm not much of a reviewer but I just watched to say how much I loved this one shot. I can totally relate to getting tattoos to get through rough patches in life. Thank you for writing this.

This was a pretty story. So young, so young.
It's awful when our bodies struggle w/these diseases.

Forgive me if I get a little deep here. My SIL was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 35.
I realize we're talking about 2 very different diseases, but THIS- "Bella cries at the change. At the sudden and sharp pain that her body has revolted against her. It is an emotional wound that sits heavy on her head, an overwhelming burden that she now carries with her."- is very similar to what she went through when she lost her hair and eventually her breast.
As women, we're conditioned from the moment we receive our first god-awful Barbie to believe that we should look a certain way. It's all over TV, magazines, in the hallways of our schools...
When she started losing her hair, her partner & my hubs shaved their heads with her. We made a party of it. She was able to smile that night. When she had her mastectomy, we all wept together and tried like hell to comfort her, but losing something like that is permanent, much like your Bella. It took her a while to work through
the grief and anger to find acceptance. You did a
BEAUTIFUL job of hitting the stages...bargaining,
depression, anger, etc.
And lots of people do use ink for healing. She died 5 years
ago today. Of course that could be why I related this to her
(because she's already weighing heavily on my mind), but I
don't think so. Anyway, this past fall, hubs got a huge back
tat of a gargoyle to remind him that she is always watching over us. It took him 4.5 years to be able to finally take that step.
This was beautiful. I cried...in a good/sad way. :)

Why didn't I read it sooner? It's beautiful. I find it fascinating how much this piece hurts, yet gives hope. I appreciate that you didn't preach about inner beauty. Yes, sure, we all know all about it. But there's nothing wrong with wanting to be pretty, to be accepted. It's not shallow; it's in our nature.
Thank you for writing this. It's one of the best I read in a long time.

Beautifully written, sweetheart. I have gotten chills every time I read this. You have a way of reaching in deep and making me feel all of Bella's emotions. You have a gift. Beautiful story. Thank you

That was so amazing. I really cried all the way though it, just feeling a little of her pain. And I am very grateful that last line said "latest tattoo" and not "last tattoo," because it was a little touch and go for a bit.
