We believe in bettering the community in every way possible.
As part of this belief system, we have implemented a community initiative program that removes visible offensive tattoos. This is not limited to: former gang tattoos, prison tattoos, and those with offensive content.
“Visible” tattoos are defined as tattoos on the hands, face and neck only. We also service survivors of the sex industry to help facilitate their recovery. Tattoo removal allows certain people to overcome a very large barrier to employment and as a result, change their lives for the better.
“If you are trying to help yourself, we will try to help you” is our core belief. To date, we have served over one hundred people and improved their chances of obtaining employment with just a few seconds of laser care.
Why does this project matter? A client who obtains employment is 80% less likely to re-offend, return to crime/prison and/or need social and public services. Even if we divert one out of 100 from the poverty-prison-crime-drug-gang-trauma-gun violence vortex…. we are doing a world of good. We receive all those community benefits in exchange for a few minutes of professional laser treatment.
To become an applicant please register on our website and send us images of your tattoos.
