Two women offer free tattoo removals

Cranberry PA Tattoo Removal

As anyone in reentry will soon discover, having a visible anti-social or gang-related tattoo can be a job stopper. And if you do have one, you may want to consider getting it removed.

Although tattoo removal can be extremely expensive, there are many people out there who are willing to do those removals for free or at a low cost. More than 300 programs in 42 states are listed in the online directory on our website. Every once in a while, we like to highlight some of the wonderful people who are doing this work. And here are two of them and their stories.

Cassie Farkas-Squires, owner of Ink Eraser Laser Tattoo Removal in Wexford, a Pittsburgh, Penn. suburb, was inspired to do tattoo removal as a result of her own experience.

“I am a heavily tattooed individual. I got tattooed when I was very young and have a lot of tattoo regret myself,” she says. “I started looking into it for me and thought I have all these tattoos that need to go, there must be other people who want to do it as well.”
