Tattooed lady Heather Brooks marked her 90th birthday with an unusual celebration: getting her first tattoo. The grandmother from Canterbury, in the UK, told Kent Online, “It is something that had never crossed my mind because I’m not actually a fan of them and it’s more of a young person’s thing. But my grandchildren Aston and Kendal both have them and sort of talked me into it." She said that she had been diagnosed with bowel cancer five years ago, and that after many rounds of chemotherapy, she has been given the all-clear. “[The tattoo] just seemed to me to be a fitting tribute to Cancer Research, who do such good work. I owe my life to them. I am also lucky to have an amazing family around me,” she said.
