Your scars and stretchmarks are not a sign of weakness, they are a sign of bravery, you battled against cancer and you won. For a tattoo there, take something very meaningful to you. I would probably do something that I truly love beyond anything else, that I know if I had died to cancer that I wouldn't be able to stand loosing. Your family? A certain animal that represents strength? Something you have a passion for? Any of these are excellent options, as long as it's important and meaningful to you. =]

Perhaps you could just write
scar

Or for other words..

fighter
Strength
Remember (so each time you feel you can't do something you'll be able to look down and touch it)
courage

maybe some of those words in.. latin or something.

I dint know if ovarian cancer has one of those ribbon things.. but perhaps that?

perhaps a phrase?
"here lie dead a monster"
"A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner."
"Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records. (william a ward)"

Maybe something as simple as a heart?

How aboutt flowers such as lilly of the valley or white oleander..

both poisonous but beautiful.

I'm so pleased you got through this my friend.
Have a word - Survivor.
Now there's a word with as much depth and meaning as you can get! Maybe get flowers around it too, if you want to pretty it up a little.

Take care you, Lulu x

ur wording is weird
but im not too sure if you mean actual surgical scars
or metaphorical

if real surgical, you cant tattoo over them it wont take as well and might look funny

boxing gloves would look cute
like u kicked the cancers ***

and im glad ur ok now =]

I think a Phoenix would be really symbolic, Rising from the ashes, emerging stronger than you were before.
