ARI's mission is to transform painful reminders of the past into symbols of hope. We provide support services, tattoo removals, and cover-ups to survivors of sex trafficking, commercial sexual exploitation, self-harm, addiction, and former gang involvement, nationally. In addition, we train communities on Iconography and from a lived experience perspective as a survivor-led nonprofit organization.
Over 516 overcomers have received assistance from ARI since 2017.
Our heart behind this mission is helping survivors from all backgrounds add another piece to rebuilding their lives. With just a few hours spent with our trusted providers and the impact of our Beyond Ink Program, we hope to provide individuals renewed hope and helping them rewrite their stories from the inside, out. We want to champion and elevate survivors to shatter glass ceilings and use THEIR voices to speak out.
