Facebook continues to take cancer survivor’s tattoo photo down

A woman who had a double mastectomy commissioned an elaborate tattoo to hide the scars.

When the tattoo parlor posted a photo of the work on Facebook, the social networking giant repeatedly took it down, saying it violated the no-nudity policy.

    I've seen a lot worse on FB, TV, the news, etc. I think this is a very different idea and might not be for everyone. But there could be many tatoos to choose from~~lots of variety and an alternative to reconstructive surgery that is not for everyone.

    Beautiful tattoo. Beating cancer is something to be proud of and she showed that she is the boss of her own body.

    What a beautiful way to show your strength over what can be a very devastating disease. Like Griffons said we have all see much worse things on general websites (facebook included!), TV etc. Heck I would much rather my daughters see more photos like this (of a strong woman) than those tromping around half naked just cause they think they look cute.

    WHERE is the nudity ???? It's better than some articles of clothing that skimpy halter tops and bikini tops wearers wear.

    What do you expect from a liberal owned website. Zuckerberg is up Obamas you know what and has no idea of what the other liberals working for him do. Facebook is nothing more than a joke for the sheeple of this country to keep their attention off of where this country is heading. Congrats to this lady for beating cancer, which I have also done !

    Wow Facebook….a no nudity policy? if that's the case then all of those "porn" and "exposing hoes" pages should be shut down immediately. This is a beautiful work of art, with a beautiful survivor behind it. Facebook is getting ridiculously out of hand.
