A fashion magazine like no other, VAR Magazine celebrated the release its first printed edition of their publication at Wooster Street Social Club on Sunday, April 15th. Some of you may have heard of this venue from the popular TLC reality television show “NY Ink.” Now, some of you might be wondering why a fashion magazine would be partnering with a tattoo shop, but trust us it is only natural that VAR Magazine would do so. Unlike other fashion magazines, VAR wants to help introduce a new era of tattoo culture, art, music, lifestyle and a love of body art.
Every year thousands of women are physically abused by their partner. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about 1.5 million people end up experiencing physical abuse from a spouse or intimate partner every year. Reports of domestic violence have risen over the past few years leaving more and more women broken on the inside and out. These women end up feeling alone, unsafe and bruised in every way possible, and their transition back into a normal life is not an easy one. They must go through countless hours to help heal their psychological and mental wounds, but often time these sessions are of no use because of the physical scars that remind them of their horrible ordeal still exist. Many of these women do not have the money to pay for the cosmetic procedures to help remove these scars, which often consist of broken teeth and a shattered smile.
