Fresh Start is is a NY State not-for-profit organization that provides free or significantly discounted tattoo removal services to reformed ex-gang members and victims of human trafficking. Visible gang tattoos have proven to interfere with rehabilitation. For ex-gang members, old tattoos can get in the way of legitimate employment opportunities and can even put their lives in danger if seen by other gang members. For victims of forced human trafficking, old “property tattoos” can be a painful daily reminder of an extremely traumatic time in their lives.
Clean Slate Laser donates free or significantly discounted tattoo removal services to people who qualify through the Fresh Start application process.
If you are an en ex-gang member or victim of human trafficking interested in this program, please contact Dr. Dave Ores, Founder & Director of the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Project:
