"Tattooing the pain of the past, into freedom for the future".
Scar Cover Up Freedom Fund (SCUFF) was started in 2018. One of the founders, Jess, had her own self-harm scars covered with tattoos as she felt trapped and held back by the constant reminder of a difficult time in her life. She soon realised that there would be others out there, like her, that needed this gift of freedom, who wouldn't be able to afford it, and may need support to do so.
Since then, SCUFF has grown to not only offer funding for tattoos to cover self-harm scars, but to also offer training for those caring for people who are self-harming and we hope to soon be offering more support for people struggling with self-harm.
