Atlanta Redemption Ink, Inc. (ARI) is a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to bringing hope, recovery, and transformation. Our mission is to transform painful marks of the past into symbols of triumph.

Atlanta Redemption Ink offers free tattoo removals to individuals who have marks from sex trafficking, gang insignia, self-harm scars, and addiction markings. What cannot be removed is replaced by a cover-up that symbolizes freedom, beauty, and redemption in a safe environment with artists who are trauma-informed, trusted, and certified removal specialists. We welcome people from all walks of life and all backgrounds. We do not discriminate or judge the people we help.

Atlanta Redemption Ink also provides program referrals, trauma-informed therapy, job readiness, GED prep, and life coaching resources to individuals in the Restoration Program.


Laws regarding minors vary from each state regarding tattoo cover-ups.

Tattoo removals are available for minors with parental/guardian consent in any state.

*We are not looking to compete with other organizations across the country in the effort to help survivors obtain freedom from physicals marks left from trauma and abuse. We believe that not just one organization or person can do it all, that it takes partnerships / joint efforts and the heart for change to impact survivors and we hope to do our part to fill that wherever needed.
