#SilenceHidesViolence: Woman ‘beaten by boyfriend’ shows powerful pictures of her injuries/ Metro.co.uk

with one comment

A creative project by a professional photographer that is raising awareness about Domestic Violence in a very powerful way;

Earlier this week Brooke Beaton called the police to report she’d been assaulted by her boyfriend.

Before her bruises had time to fade, she used them to make her alleged abuser live up to his actions.

Ms Beaton, from South Dakota, enlisted the help of her photographer friend Tiffany Thoelke to create powerful pictures, which put her injuries on full display.

Some of the images show the 27-year-old crying, but she remains defiant and unbroken.

Ms Thoelke, owner of T.S.T Photography, told Metro.co.uk: ‘I hope we can continue to help the thousands if not millions affected by this [domestic violence] every day.

‘We never expected this, it’s a bit overwhelming,’ she added about the reaction to the photographs.

‘It opened a conversation that could go on forever.

‘Where it goes from here, I’m not sure. It’s only been a couple days, but it’s hitting powerful, powerful people that I’m hoping will use this as their platform.’

TATTOO ARTIST OFFERS FREE WORK FOR SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE/ davidwolfe.com

Scars can cut both ways: they can give us a sense of pride or they can retraumatize by reminding us of the past. With that in mind, tattoo artist Flavia Carvalho decided to start a project called ‘A Pele da FLor’ (translation: ‘The Skin of the Flower’). Through this project she offers free services to women who have scars from domestic abuse.

Flavia Carvalho runs a studio in Curitiba, Brasil. She’s helped women who have been stabbed by knives, shot with bullets and covers up mastectomies as well.
As she explains:

“I started the project quite recently, and I had no idea it would receive this much media attention. It began very spontaneously. As I said, my services are a hundred percent voluntary, and the only “cost” women need to invest is to choose a design for their tattoos!”

She tells her story of how it began:

“It all started about two years ago, when I worked with a client who wanted to cover a large scar on her abdomen”

“She told me that she was at a nightclub, and when she turned down a man who approached her, he stabbed her with an switchblade”

“When she saw the finished tattoo, she was extremely moved, and that deeply touched me”

“The one that shocked me the most was the story of a 17 year-old girl who dated an older man and, for months, suffered from the physically abusive relationship”

“When he wanted to break up with her, he scheduled a meeting, and after they began to fight, he stabbed her several times in her abdomen, and violently raped her”
