When you think tattoo parlor, little pink ribbons aren't the first things that come to mind.
But at Meno's ink, that's exactly what their serving up this month.
"It's something everybody notices, everybody will ask about it, so it's a conversation piece," says Amber Tapia, co-owner of Meno's Ink.
They're charging 50 dollars for a ribbon and half the money goes to breast cancer research.
Today, a grandma, granddaughter duo made a very permanent statement.
"I'm a five year breast cancer survivor. Gone through chemo radiation and my granddaughter's here with me. She's getting a tattoo too," says Pat Freiburger, a breast cancer survivor.
When pat was first diagnosed she says she and her family were shocked and worried.
But instead of being defeated, pat made a personal promise.
She told her family, she will beat this.
"You know what I'm not dead; I'm not going to die. We're going to figure out what to do and that's what we did, we went from there," says Freiburger.
Her granddaughter Breanna says her grandma is the strongest person she knows.
"I think that's one of the reasons I have such a perma–smile and happy attitude. I think of her and if she can do all of that and still be happy then I can do anything," says Breanna Johnson, granddaughter of survivor.
And workers at Meno's Ink know the struggles that come with breast cancer.
That's why they say it's rewarding to help the fight.
"That's always going to be a memory for everybody. I'm just happy it could be a positive one for us," says Tapia.
Meno's ink will offer the breast cancer ribbon special until the end of the month.
