A Kentucky Tattoo Shop Will Cover Up Gang And Hate Tattoos For Free

A tattoo shop in Kentucky is offering to cover up any racist or hate-related tattoo for free in a move to help people change “for the better.” Gallery X Art Collective in Murray announced the deal last week on Facebook, and said that anyone with a tattoo they’d like gone could have it covered up with a design of the artists’ choosing, no questions asked. “Let’s get that s— off your body,” the post read. “We have plenty of pred[r]awn designs and flash books, so if you feel it’s time to change your hate, or have been reformed but been too broke to cover your mistake of a tattoo, come see me [and] you’ll get a class tattoo for free that can start your path to being the person you were meant to be.” The idea was launched by tattoo artists Jeremiah Swift and Ryun King, who said it was inspired by their support of the Black Lives Matter movement. So far, more than 500 people have reached out for help getting rid of offensive images.
