Skin cancer accounts for over 50% of cancer diagnoses in Brazil, but young people often don’t look out for the signs. Ogilvy & Mather Brazil helped youth sunscreen brand Sol de Janeiro find a new way to reach young people on this issue – by training tattoo artists to spot the early signs of skin cancer.
