Situated in the Santa Clara valley and nearby canyons, Santa Clarita includes the former towns of Canyon Country, , they have a solution.

The city is offering a tattoo removal service to residents willing to trade community service hours and classroom instruction for the free laser treatment.

We don’t do it if it’s not prohibiting someone from employment,” said Dianna Boone, community services supervisor for the city.

In the three years since the program began, 12 to 15 people have received the free service, said Boone.

We had one participant who had a tattoo removed who said he felt stripped of his identification,” said Boone. The education is to put in positives for taking away the identity. Plus, people always feel better when they give something to get something in return.”

The classes also help the city get a return on its investment, said Boone. Though Dr. Bernard Raskin volunteers his time in removing tattoos, the city still must pay a laser leasing fee of $100 per session, said Boone. And complete removal usually requires two or three treatments.

Adding a reformed, employed resident to Santa Clarita makes the investment worth it, said Boone.

Boone gave the example of one recipient who decided to have a gang tattoo removed because he had a child and wanted to support his family. But his tattoo was keeping him from getting hired.

When he got the tattoo removed, he got a job almost immediately,” said Boone. It intimidated people. It put up a wall between (him and) the people who would have employed him.”
