Scars can go both ways: they can give one a sense of pride or they can traumatize you by jogging your memory of the past. With that said, tattoo artist Flavia Carvalho decided to start a mission called ‘A Pele da FLor’ (interpretation: ‘The Skin of the Flower’). Through this plan she offers free services to females who have scars from domestic cruelty.
Flavia Carvalho runs a workshop in Curitiba, Brazil. She’s helped womenfolk who have been wounded by knives, shot with bullets and shields mastectomies as well.
As she clarifies:
“I started the project lately, and I had no notion it would receive this much mass media attention. It began very impulsively. As I said, my services are a hundred percent charitable, and the only “cost” females need to devote is to choose a design for their tattoos!”
She tells her story of how it began:
1. “It all started out around two years ago, when I worked with a customer who wanted to cover a large scar on her stomach”
