The Fierce Freedom Podcast

Jul 4, 2023

Tattoos have become a popular way to represent personal interests and passions. But for a victim of sex trafficking, "branding" tattoos from their pimp tell the gut-wrenching story of their abuse and exploitation.

Stephanie Andresen-Stevens is the Founder of Restorative Ink, a 501-c3 non-profit providing FREE tattoo removal services to those who are rebuilding their lives due to human trafficking or domestic violence.

Stephanie shares about how this service was borne out of her own personal and professional experiences. She gives warning signs for service providers and encourages them to respond to victims in a trauma informed way that validates both their reactions and experiences.
