Brazilian woman does free tattoos for survivors of domestic violence

Every day thousands of women around the world are victims of domestic violence. Those women have to deal with the emotional scars and some also have to live with physical scars that never go away.  But if you’re a tattoo artist you can make a difference.

Meet: Flavia Carvalho, she decided to do something for domestic violence victims by helping them cover those wounds by giving them free tattoos.

Carvalho lives in Brazil; she runs a studio where she helps women cover scars from knives and bullets, helping them transform the horrific into something beautiful.

Carvalho told the Huffington Post, “It began very spontaneously…my services are a hundred percent voluntary, and the only “cost” women need to invest is to choose a design for their tattoos!”
