It comes as no suprise that there’s a great therapeutic value about tattoos. Here’s yet another (and quite moving) example of how tattoos can help us deal with a loss, a trauma or a tragedy. CA public libraries and StoryCorps are looking for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to share their stories in an exhibit focused on their war experiences and stories behind their tattoos. The project is called War Ink and is going to be exhibited on Veterans Day.

The stories must be told and dealt with and there are many ways to do so. This past weekend I came across an interesting article about using ancient myths to help veterans fight PTSD. You can read it here!
