This is the story of how Samira Omar, who suffered a horrific bullying attack that scarred her permanently.
She received the incredible opportunity to return to normal with a new medical tattooing technology and the kindness of Basma Hameed, a paramedical tattooing specialist.
The 17-year-old Omar was attacked by a group of girls whom she thought were her friends. They beat her and threw boiling water on her, leaving her badly burned and covered in scars and discoloration.
Omar's life was severely affected by the incident, as her scars were a constant reminder of the terrible attack. She thought they would be with her forever, but then she met Hameed.
Hameed is the owner of a tattoo shop that specializes in paramedical tattooing. Hameed doesn't tattoo vibrant, colorful designs. Instead, she uses specific pigments that match skin color in order to cover scars.
With the help of paramedical tattoo artists, like Hameed, people can significantly decrease their scar visibility and discoloration after only a few treatments. With Hameed's help, patients like Omar can see a dramatic decrease in their scar visibility and discoloration after a few treatments. She even offers free procedures for patients who are unable to afford treatment. This is because Hameed herself was a patient of paramedical tattooing. She had her own facial scars and, after fixing them with this treatment, she was inspired to help others with her work. She knows first-hand how life-changing these treatments can be and has even helped certain patients for free, like Omar, who could not afford the treatment.
