Brazilian Artist Does Free Tattoos For Victims Of Domestic Violence
Scars are forever, unless you cover them up with tattoos. That’s what Flavia Carvalho does for women who suffered domestic violence – and she does it for free. From bullet wounds to abdomen stabbings, the Brazilian tattoo artist has been covering them up for almost two years.
Operating from her tattoo studio in Curitiba, Flavia Carvalhlo was a Biological Sciences student until her friends advised her to try her hand at tattooing. “I started the project quite recently, and I had no idea it would receive this much media attention,” Carvalho said in an online interview. “It began very spontaneously. As I said, my services are a hundred percent voluntary, and the only “cost” women need to invest is to choose a design for their tattoos!”

“It all started about two years ago, when I worked with a client who wanted to cover a large scar on her abdomen”
“She told me that she was at a nightclub, and when she turned down a man who approached her, he stabbed her with an switchblade”
“When she saw the finished tattoo, she was extremely moved, and that deeply touched me”
“The one that shocked me the most was the story of a 17 year-old girl who dated an older man and, for months, suffered from the physically abusive relationship”
“When he wanted to break up with her, he scheduled a meeting, and after they began to fight, he stabbed her several times in her abdomen, and violently raped her”
She also does free tattoos for women who have mastectomy scars
This woman was grazed by a bullet
The 2 women who said that they were stabbed in their abdomen were obviously just lying to get free tattoos. I have the exact same scar as the 1st woman with the long scar, from removing ovarian cancer. Anyone left with a wound that big would’ve died in mins. Look closely the 2nd woman with a similar scar had the same operation and some bad stretch marks.

There was no need to censor that nipple (whoever did that), the scars were even more explicit, especially considering the causes.
But anyway, that’s beautiful.
