On her 90th birthday, Heather Brooks stunned her family by getting her first tattoo. She chose a cancer research pink ribbon to signify her victory after a five year battle with cancer.

The tattooist at the Belly Bar applauded the idea, and said that if Heather reached 100, she could return for another tattoo on the house.

Brooks said, "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."

"It 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. The nurses and doctors have been amazing, and now I have been given the all clear."

Brooks added that the tattoo didn't hurt at all.
