I picked up this book at the Library Sale yesterday and it’s very cool…each page has a very short, handwritten, note from the person in the photo. It’s why they got the tattoo and what it means…it’s a really nice book.

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.
