It’s not a secret that art can heal. Music keeps you young, paintings boost your immune system, and tattoos let you look at things differently. Body art may take on a new meaning when a person’s gone through hard times. These people were brave enough to show their scars to the whole world and even turned them into works of art.
Inspired by all the strong people you’re going to see, Bright Side would like to share these wonderful pieces of art with you.
