Boobies, Surfing And Tattoos: Calavera Swimwear Teams Up With Tattoo Artist Kim Saigh For Breast Cancer Education
Renowned artist Kim Saigh of television series LA Ink has launched a collection of limited edition tattoo print suits with surf-inspired swimwear brand Calavera. If the beautiful floral print didn’t make them inspiring enough, Calavera is donating 50% of the proceeds to benefit the Keep A Breast Foundation and the tidal wave of breast cancer prevention education to today and tomorrow’s youth.
“Regardless of size, shape or scars, every woman’s body is a work of art. My hope is that women will wear these swimsuits with a sense of empowerment, beauty and strength,” says Calavera Founder Anna Jerstrom.
Anna is so commited to the prevention education of young women everywhere that she even had Kim Saigh’s floral print tattooed on her torso to mark the occasion.
This collaboration represents the support and empowerment of young women to stay active and educated on what they can do to lower their risk of breast cancer. Swimming or surfing is a great option for aerobic exercise and just 30 minutes of aerobic activity 3-5 times a week can lower your risk of breast cancer by 30 to 50 percent.
The pink, black and grey tulip motif will be available in two styles; Calavera’s best selling “Siren” bikini top (USD $65) and the one-piece “Leotard” suit (USD $126). Both styles are available for sale online via the Urban Outfitter’s fitness and outdoor apparel division, Without Walls and the Calavera website.
