Flavia Carvalho is a tattoo artist based in Curitiba, Brasil, who runs a studio to spread happiness among people. She is using her art to cover the scars of women who had been the victims of domestic violence. What she charges in return is just a smile and no money value.

The lady named her project of body art as "A Pele da Flor" -- The skin of the flower. The artist has helped women to cover their scars because they may never disappear and will keep on haunting for the rest of their lives. Flavia seeks to transform those scars into beautiful and empowering tattoos since tattoos somehow have the power to fix the imperfections on the skin.
