  Medical professionals and firefighters are understood to be on the front-line of Human Trafficking, but a new group of professionals is stepping up: tattoo artists. The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health is teaming up with the tattoo community to create a training model for artists; how to recognize and respond to human trafficking. Reporting from one of Omaha’s popular late-night tattoo shops, Omaha Public Radio’s Emily Chen-Newton explores the industry’s relationship to human trafficking and their efforts to subvert it.
