LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A victim of sex trafficking who was physically damaged by her pimp with tattoos on one side of her face has a new future.
The tattoos will be removed with the help of a local doctor.
The victim fought her attacker until he agreed to free her. But even at home, each day was a fight.
“I had one guy not even know who I am, not know anything about me tell me it looked like Mike Tyson puked on my face,” she said.
Complete tattoo removal seemed financially impossible until her treatment facility got her in touch with Dr. Julio Garcia. He has helped former gang members remove their tattoos, erasing their past lives.
He would do the same for her.
She gathered enough to put into a letter -- encompassing her gratitude, her story and her future.
“If you could walk in my shoes for one day to see what I go through on a day to day, it's crazy,” she said. “I’m not going to have to deal with it anymore. I can laugh about it, joke about it.”
As for pressing charges, she says that's not a priority -- it is getting completely back on her feet and raising a new baby boy.
