Community Involvement with Tattoo Removal for a New Life
Laser tattoo removal is an aesthetic procedure with wide appeal. Most tattoo removal patients seek removal because of a change in style, attitude, or preference. However, for some people, laser tattoo removal can be a life-changing event.
Nationwide, coalitions, non-profits, and community groups work hard to provide free or low-cost tattoo removal to ex-gang members and previously incarcerated individuals. Removing these tattoos (many of which are on the face, neck, and hands) is both practical and symbolic for leaving the gang lifestyle. Tattoo removal gives freedom to those seeking a better life.
Astanza laser has worked with several non-profits, including CAPSLO, Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County, to help give affordable laser tattoo removal in gang-dominated neighborhoods. CAPSLO’s Liberty Tattoo Removal program continues to change countless lives. Tattoo Removal Ink and the Jail Ministry of Elkhart County also provide free to low-cost laser tattoo removal to those in need.
Astanza has also partnered with Homeboy Industries – the nation’s largest non-profit provider of laser tattoo removal for over six years. They have been providing tattoo removal and second chances for years and trust the Astanza Duality laser to handle the demand of their large volume of at-risk patients.
