Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program
Since 2014 we have been proud to be part of the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program, Inc. The Fresh Start Tattoo Program is a nonprofit community program (501(c) 3) that removes visible gang tattoos, prison tattoos and forced tattoos from people. Removal of these tattoos can have a life changing effect on their lives and those of their families for the better. The idea is to remove one of many barriers to gainful, improved employment or lessen the psychological impact of tattoos placed against their will. This program is at no charge to the client.
Fresh Start began about five years ago, when Dr. Dave Ores started removing tattoos at no charge to this population in need. “If you are trying to help yourself, we will try to help you” is the central concept of the program. Pigment Tattoo and Laser Removal is one of four locations in Texas participating in this program. We are committed to Dr. Dave and the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program. If you have a need for these services or want to know if you qualify for the program go to www.freshstarttattooremoval.org and fill out the application. When the referral comes our way, we will be more than happy to help. Pigment Tattoo and Laser Removal believes everyone should have an opportunity for an even playing field. We are proud to offer laser tattoo removal in the Austin area to those in this program. Remember, we want to help, but applications must be submitted to Dr. Dave and the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal first. At the recommendation of Dr. Dave, we will also treat nonvisible tattoos as well. These will be treated at a reduced cost.
The Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program, Inc., has 501(c) 3 status with the IRS, and will also accept charitable donations.
