The Scar Project (Australia)
This project is very close my heart and my intentions is to help victims of self harm cover their scars and replace them with designs they love. This gesture is sometimes considered as symbolic as they recover and move forward, not wanting to be reminded of their vulnerable times and struggles due to memories and stigma their scars might bring. Using tattoos can help bring new meaning and also relief from judgement. It can also help aid healing and turn trauma into something magical whilst serving as a little reminder to prevent future self harm.
Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are "toughing it out", keeping feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Movember is aiming to reduce the rate of suicide by 25% by 2030 and I want to help them get there. Every year in the month of November, I have a Flash Tattoo Day and donate 100% of my proceeds to them. If you'd like to support me, support them, donate to this link:
