A major reason formerly incarcerated individuals reoffend is unemployment.
By eliminating as many barriers to employment as possible, you can help to reduce recidivism. Many facilities are doing this by providing vocational training, job readiness programs, and other evidence-based practices. But what about tattoo removal?
Studies show that visible, antisocial or gang-related tattoos adversely impact a qualified candidate’s chances of finding gainful employment. These tattoos are often accompanied by a level of regret and a strong desire to remove them.
For many reasons, facilities are acquiring tattoo removal equipment. From increasing the success of reentry, to saving money, to giving individuals a fresh start, the benefits of offering tattoo removal within your facility are astounding.
Human trafficking primarily involves exploitation which comes in many forms,including forcing victims into prostitution, subjecting victims to slavery or involuntary servitude and compelling victims to commit sex acts for the purpose of creating pornography. While difficult to obtain accurate statistics due to the nature of human trafficking, it is estimated that between 20 and 30 million individuals are currently being exploited.
Many of these victims have been involuntarily tattooed or branded. This functions as a way to designate or imply ownership. These tattoos serve as a constant reminder of the horrific things experienced for those who are fortunate enough to break free from this vile practice.
These tattoos are typically placed on a prominent area of the body for easier identification, which makes truly moving on with one’s life all but impossible, by removing them, it is our hope that these individuals can begin to heal.
“Every time that you had to get dressed and undressed, you would have to look at that tattoo and know where it came from…I knew the loneliness, the embarrassment, and I was so angry that life had done to you what it had done to me,” says a recipient of an involuntary tattoo.
