INK-nitiative Program

We provide thousands of free tattoo removal treatments annually to those in need. By changing their external appearance, it helps reflect internal change and moving forward in life.
The program


Our 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.


Free tattoo removal for approved applicants


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 brighter futures and a better version of themselves. We want to empower people who have had the courage to change and help them feel confident in their new path.
