According to new reports, the tattoo removal business is booming in the United States and the reason is quite interesting.
KPIX-TV in San Francisco reported that the industry has received a surprise bump because of President Trump.
Members of the Latino community are flocking to tattoo removal clinics in order to get rid of tattoos that they feel may make them targets for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
“A lot of people don’t want to be a moving target or even seen as a target,” Nora Ruiz of the San Pablo Economic Development Corporation said. “And for fear that they might be seen as a certain type of person or judged in any way, people want to get their tattoos removed.”
Of course, there is no evidence that authorities are using tattoos to target potential illegal aliens.
However, a family is suing Seattle after they claimed one of their family members, who is an illegal immigrant, was detained because of his tattoos.
In the end, this is an interesting phenomena, and at the very worst, it will lead to several hideous tattoos being removed.
