The effect of domestic violence on women is sometimes indescribable: how fear, pain, and even scars can leave a permanent damage to a woman’s physical, emotional, and psychological being. They are haunted by bitter memories of disrespect and abuse, and a scar left by these memories are constant reminders of what they have gone through. Abused women need help. And a little can go a long way.
Tattoo artist Flavia Carvalho from Brasil decided to do something about these ‘reminders’. Through her project, “A Pele da Flor” (The Skin of the Flower), she does FREE tattoo to cover up the painful marks of the abuse. She also gives the same free tattoos to women who underwent masectomy. A simple but powerful way to empower women, and make them feel beautiful again.
