A cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters!

Part of the wonderful work SCUFF does is helping those who have recovered from #Selfharming to fund a tattoo to cover up their scars. A tattoo which they may not otherwise have been able to get.

A wonderful way to celebrate their achievements!

Here is a cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters! This tattoo was done by Eloise at Gilded Dagger Tattoo / @gildeddaggertattoo . Here's what our applicant had to say about the experience:

"Getting this scar cover up has given me so much more confidence with wearing short sleeves in public, I used to hide away in jumpers and jackets even when it was boiling hot which isn't nice. SCUFF have given me freedom and courage and I will forever be grateful. When I first looked at my tattoo I got quite emotional because it felt like all the years of hiding away and being ashamed of my scars had gone and I could try and put the past behind me, not to mention how beautiful the tattoo is - the tattooist is so talented! Thank you so much SCUFF for this funding, you really do make a change in people's lives."

I HATE this day every year!

This is the birthday of the person who sexually assaulted me. Because we were friends before hand I rememeber it. I hate it because all the people I know from church praise him all over social media and say how proud they are of him. Especially the people who covered up the assaultes https://i.e Family and friends including church. I just don't know what to do to keep myself and my mental health safe. It angers me that he was born each year!

I just don't understand people!

So they guy who sexually assaulted me and others seems to be trying still to do youth work within churchs and holidays. Like what the hell. The police cant tell the organisations because he wasnt charged as insufficent evidence from just me. The other girls where to scared to come forward because of his dad. Like how can people from church lie to the police and put other young girls at risk?! It kills me inside everyday since my attack and this adds more fire to it! I just don't know what to do anymore. If I tell the organisations I will get in trouble. I hate life right now!

why is it, my family have a go at me if I try and spread awearness of sexual assault? Literally yes it happened to me but I am trying to make people awear of the affects it has on people if you don't help them. I am also trying to show the signs so you can maybe spot them. Like they comment saying "why don't you broadcast it in the news paper!" Like what the hell. Are they the person who was sexually assaulted by a so called friend from church? No. Where they the person who was let down by the church when coming forward? No. Are they the one who has to live with the church covering it up?No. Do they feel guilty because someone else was attacked worse because they didn't go to the police as they took advice from the church? No! Are they the ones suffering from PTSD, Depression, Anxiety and Panic? No!Are they the ones who is in counsilling? No!
So what gives them the right to tell me what I can and cannot do to heal MYSELF! What gives them the right to make me feel bad and say my counsillor would be dissapointed in me? This is why people don't tell their family or anyone for that matter! That is why there is a stigma!

Why is so hard for churches to listen when it comes to sexual assault?

I was sexually assaulted at my church 3 years ago. They covered it up then. Now he has attack more and they lied to the police and covered it up again. It has broken me mentally. Why can't the church learn not to put friendship first!? This guy is still out and about attacking people and wants to work with youth. How is this allowed!? #Depression #Anxiety #SexualAssault #Church #Religion #MentalHealth #Coverup
