New Tattoo Removal Technique

We’re excited to announce that in June 2018, Homeboy Industries received a donation of laser equipment from Eraser Clinic Laser Tattoo Removal. The Sinon q-switched ruby laser by Alma Lasers adds the 694 nanometer wavelength to our tattoo removal toolkit and allows us to treat exotic ink colors such as blue, green, purple, and stubborn black. This is a particularly valuable piece of equipment that will allow us to treat hundreds of men and women looking to remove visible tattoos that may prevent them from working certain jobs and moving beyond their gang affiliation . We look forward to putting this gift to good use supporting our mission!
