In other words, if rules are not clear, they can be open to interpretation and indicate that certain people can perform laser tattoo removal. In this article, we help navigate the top 5 laser tattoo removal regulation-friendly states.

Why Now is the Time to Start a Nonprofit Laser Tattoo Removal Business

Since the time it was first introduced, laser tattoo removal has skyrocketed in popularity. People worldwide jumped at the chance of parting ways with their tattoo regret and unwanted ink. Physicians, estheticians, medical spas, and tattoo artists began investing in laser tattoo removal, not just because of the high demand but because they saw how eager people were to remove a permanent mark that no longer identifies them.

Over time, non-profit organizations, correctional institutions, and other laser removal providers caught onto the transformative power that laser tattoo removal provides. It became apparent that if laser tattoo removal can have such a positive effect on a newlywed who removed an ex’s name, then how much more powerful would it be for an ex-convict who could erase a permanent reminder of their past.

If you’ve been considering starting your own non-profit or want a way to give back to your community, then laser tattoo removal might be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Non-Profit Laser Tattoo Removal - Erasing Memories of the Past


Contrary to popular opinion, some people receive tattoos against their own volition. Individuals in prison, those involved with gangs, people under the influence of peer pressure, or victims of sex trafficking are often forced to get one or several tattoos to be a part of a group. Countless people rely on laser tattoo removal to eliminate painful memories resulting from unwanted, forced, or inappropriate tattoos. In particular, people with inappropriate tattoos or candidates seeking employment with tattoos on their hands or face tend to regret their ink as some employers look negatively at visible tattoos.

For example, most of those who spend time in jail find it challenging to segue to civilian life. Thankfully, charitable groups and individuals such as the Jail Ministry of Elkhart County in Elkhart, Indiana, exist. This group is working hard to make a positive difference for those transitioning from jail to regular civilian life. The Jail Ministry of Elkhart County's laser tattoo removal program focuses on removing gang tattoos, particularly those from the wrist area on down and those on the neck and up. Tattoos in such locations are problematic as they are visible to hiring managers, business owners, and colleagues. Though a hiring manager might not admit he or she refuses to hire someone with visible tattoos, the truth is such tattoos often stand in the way of an offer for gainful employment.
