"I want a tattoo similar to this, one side do the purple with a zipper (for Chiari Malformation - zipperhead and Burnt Orange (for CRPS/RSD) the butterfly is the symbol of change (where I hope one day I will change back into a pain free person).
Almost five years later, the tattoo still looks great and I'm still cancer free!! I got this tattoo in honor of my battle with thyroid cancer. The thyroid cancer ribbon is blue, pink, and teal. The thyroid is butterfly shaped, hence the butterfly. The flowers are forget-me-nots so I remember everything I've been through and remember to take the best steps to prevent recurrence.
