Former Sex Slaves Get New Tattoos
Jennifer Kempton was just another statistic in the $9.5 billion U.S. human-trafficking industry — and she had a tattoo marking her as a pimp’s property to prove it. Breaking free from her predicament meant getting new ink. Now she has started a campaign for other former sex slaves, whose tattoos serve as daily reminders of their previous hell. Survivor’s Ink in Columbus, Ohio, helps those who’ve escaped a world of bondage cover their tats in a bid to heal emotional, as well as physical, scars.
