Tattoo removal helping a ‘branding’ victim break from her past

Former prostitutes have struggled with this for decades — how to build a new life with a glaring, constant reminder of a low, shameful time — but tattoo removal is not always an easy option. It can be time-consuming and expensive — and typically survivors are more focused on emotional and mental healing.
