Trauma-Aware Tattooing and Informed Consent
Informed Consent and Trauma-Aware Tattooing
This resource, written by Tamara Santibañez of Saved Tattoo in collaboration with the Women’s Prison Association, was developed in response to the needs of clients who are trauma-impacted or survivors of violence. The guide describes ways to integrate informed consent into the tattooing process, practical ways to be mindful of boundaries and communication, and tips for active listening.
The pamphlet is available for free pickup at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY, for mail-order via our webstore, and as a free downloadable PDF for home reproduction.
