At first sight, Lydia looks like any average kueh-loving Peranakan girl. But beneath the sarong kebaya, lies a permanently etched, painful past. How did a sweet, innocent girl end up tattooing herself? Read Lydia’s story and full-colour photos of her tattoos in our book, Leaving The Pain Behind – available at Toy Outpost at Nex and Plaza Singapura. Author signed copies are available online.
