Directory of U.S. free or low-cost tattoo removal programs
Are tattoos keeping you from getting a job? Are they not who you are anymore?
Then it’s time to take action. Removing visible tattoos, especially those that are antisocial or related to gangs, will improve your chances of finding employment, help restore hope and offer healing. If you are a victim of human trafficking, getting rid of any unwanted tattoos you received can be a major step in your recovery process and can help restore dignity and self-esteem.
But how do you do it, and, even more importantly, how do you pay for it?
You can begin by using our directory, which includes tattoo removal programs across the U.S. Some of them charge. Others are free but may have requirements.
Note: For best results, enter your zip code or city to search the surrounding area. If no results are found, increase the radius and search again.
