Removery’s INK-nitiative program is a community outreach initiative designed to provide safe, effective, and free tattoo removal on the hands, neck, and face to those in need who were formerly incarcerated, gang members, survivors of human trafficking and those who wish to remove hate symbols or racist tattoos.
Old tattoos can be a painful reminder of a life left behind. By removing them we help our clients erase daily reminders of darker past days, leaving room for a brighter future and a better version of themselves. We want to empower people who’ve had the courage to change and help them feel confident in their new path.
For every paying person who completes their tattoo removal journey we will provide a removal service to someone who meets the below criteria:
- Tattoo is on the hands, neck, face
- Previously or are currently incarcerated
- Survivor of human trafficking
- Have a hate symbol or racist tattoo
- Former gang member
