Acid attack victims to be a tattoo artist? Thanks to this tattoo parlour!

On Monday, the national capital of the country experienced something awe-inspiring. The acid attack survivors gave a new turn to their life by learning tattoo art and finding employment opportunities in the same. 

On 24th April, Stop Acid Attacks campaign led by Laxmi collaborated with Body Canvas Tattoos & Piercings to conduct this philanthropic workshop for the acid attack survivors. Vikas Malani, founder of the renowned parlour helped these ‘heroes’ with tattoo art so they can spend the rest of their life with dignity. To teach them the tattooing techniques, they were made familiar with all the tattoo equipment and even got a chance to try their hands at tattooing.

In this most wonderful move, the survivors were also given a chance to get themselves inked. Many acid attack survivors along with Laxmi got themselves inked in pretty patterns, enthusiastically. Not only this, the survivors who are willing to opt for tattooing as their career will also be given a scholarship by Body Canvas Tattoos.

A 22-year old acid attack survivor says, “I am finding the profession of a tattoo artist very dynamic, challenging and interesting; I am considering applying for a scholarship at Body Canvas Tattoos”

Laxmi, Director of Chhanv Foundation, who is an inspiration to many, says, “I am getting a meaningful tattoo which is connects to my soul; it is symbolic to freedom because I want to put across the message to the society what free will is and the liberty to choose, or have an opinion means to us.
