Rina Chauhan 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.
