It’s pretty common to see people with tattoos these days, but some of those are especially meaningful for the people who wear them.
Fernando Hideki is a tattoo artist, and he noticed some clients coming in to get tattoos because they had very specific types of scars, caused by self harm. He wants to raise awareness and funds for mental health, so has joined forces with Beyond Blue.
