Woman gives free tattoos to other women, to cover SCARS from stabbings, etc., from male abuse…from Bored Panda

I wasn’t gong to post this.  Sometimes it just gets to be too much…seeing women beaten, stabbed, dead, at the hands of men.  But then I thought…here’s a woman who’s doing something positive…something that matters, something that is making a difference.  We all need to do something that makes a difference.  Once I thought of it that way, I posted it because it’s a gift from one woman to other women.   A gift to help heal what is done to women every single day, all over the world.  This artist is giving her talent and heart to others and it’s a beautiful thing.

    Beautiful, thank you for sharing!

  2. OH Bling that is a lot but it’s deep in a healing way! Wow! I don’t know what to say! Wow Bling!

  3. I would imagine these tatoos are life changing.

    How wonderful!
    A way to show that they have survived & are not letting their negative past take over their lives!

    • I agree. I think it’s wonderful too and I’m so happy for them. I wish she we could get the men who did it to them tattooed on their faces so women would know to stay away from them.

  5. Staggeringly horrifying that there is such a need for this…and deeply moving and beautiful that she is offering this bit of beauty to survivors. It has to help them regain some sense of control over their own bodies and how they see themselves.
