Meet the Tattoo Artist Who Turns Domestic Abuse Survivors’ Scars Into Art

at 5:37 pm | By


As Forrest Gump so famously said, “Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” The phrase has become pretty cliche, but it gets the point across. There are some people who, by the luck of the draw, find themselves living a privileged life, while others have had to deal with more than you could ever imagine.

I have led an extremely fortunate life, so when I look at scars on someone else’s body, I’m inquisitive. The scars that my friends and I have earned come from playing too rough on the playground or a slip of the hand while dicing something in the kitchen. It wasn’t until  a friend admitted that her scars were from a “slip of her ex-boyfriend’s hand” when he got too drunk one night that I realized not all scars come from accidents.

This tattoo artist is covering the scars from domestic abuse victims and turning them into works of art!
