In 2017 I approached my friends at Sickside Tattoo Studio in Horn Lake, MS, just 20 minutes away from downtown Memphis, with an idea that I had in my mind for quiet some time. Since Shop Manager Drew Darby owner Jack Flores both knew about my past, and how I felt about getting the ink removed that was connected to my own past, they both immediately agreed to join my campaign. Soon, other tattoo parlors have joined the campaign and now offer to cover up racist and gang related tattoos for free.
The service is available in:
Horn Lake, MS / Memphis, TN
Los Angeles, CA
We are currently working on two other major cities to join us.
