About the organizer
Healing Ink is the only organization in the world pledged to utilize the power of tattoos to ease the physical and emotional pain caused by war and terrorism.
Started in 2016, Healing Ink brought 8 artists to Israel where they tattooed 25 conflict survivors both inside the Israel Museum and at the scene of a deadly shooting in Tel Aviv, we changed lives, opened perceptions, and saw the need and ability to expand this idea across the globe. For more information visit the organizations’ webpage.
We have traveled the world and seen the unifying force of tattooing and see its power to heal. Since we cannot prevent the causes of conflict, all we can do is offer survivors a new way to look at themselves and present themselves to others. We can give them the knowledge that they are cared for and that the permanent, powerful mark of a tattoo has helped them reclaim their body and, once again, feel comfortable in their own skin.
