Tattoo artist Flavia Carvalho gives free tattoos to women who have suffered domestic abuse and helps them cover any physical scars they have have. In her project called ” A Pele da Flor ” The Skin of the Flower – Flavia has helped many women in the past two years cover their scars of knives or bullets wounds with beautiful flower tattoos free of charge. Some might say she transformes these unpleasant mementos into a tool of emporwerement.
Her studio is in Curitiba, Brazil ” I started the project quite recently , and I had no idea it would receive this much media attention, it began very spontaneously. As I said, my services are a hundred precent voluntary, and the only ” cost ” women need to invest is to choose a design for their tattoos! ” More info: Facebook
