Branding is a tattoo or carving on a victim that indicates ownership by a trafficker, pimp, or gang. Tattoos on trafficked victims can vary, depending on the trafficker, the context of the trafficking, the regional location, and several other factors.
Bar codes. Some may be scannable. They often have numbers that may not necessarily mean anything. Initials or names to indicate the specific person they “belong” to. Crowns and roses or currency.
Trafficking victims often receive tattoos as a distinguishing mark to indicate a trafficker’s “property.”
People are not property. The innocent should and must be protected at all costs.
Traffickers track the victims by using these "marks" and in some instances indicate the asking price of their services.
This is often shown in a tattoo that looks like currency, such as money symbols, coins, and/or dollar bills.
Helping survivors of human trafficking overcome the painful reminders of their past by bringing self confidence while on their journey of healing is critical to helping them begin anew.
The scars are more than surface deep but we can help with healing.
