Rina was in a abusive relationship for 18 years and has scars from both abuse and self-harm. For women who have been victims of domestic violence, these scars can be a permanent reminder of a time in their lives they would rather leave behind. Most tattooists shy away from tattooing over scar tissue, but Rina has found an all-female run local tattoo parlour who are happy to help.
Skinflicted in Keighley is able to offer a variety of services and being an all female studio has meant that Lucy is able to expand the business in such a way that she is able to help and support any victim of domestic abuse, any person who may need a tattoo for a discreet reason and also now branching out into seeking support from local and national businesses to raise awareness of the importance of raising the industry standards of nipple tattooing.
