Do you have a tattoo that could be considered culturally insensitive? If you answered yes, you're not alone. That's why St. Pete tattoo parlor Fredo Ink&Co is offering to cover up hateful and racist tattoos for free.\nNarcity spoke with Franklin “Fredo” Alfaro, the owner of Fredo Ink&Co., to learn more about what inspired him to offer the cover-ups.\nAs an immigrant from Colombia with a wife whose family are also Haitian immigrants, the St. Pete tattoo shop owner has two minority children.\n“We knew we had to give back,” Fredo told Narcity. “Now more than ever we need to contribute to positivity and progression. We saw that other cities were doing it and just knew that was the best way for us to contribute; by using our art for good.”\n"People change and they learn that what they once thought was wrong. And that tattoo that they got during that time doesn't reflect who they are today."\nView this post on Instagram First one down! Many more to go!

Message me if you want your racist mistake covered for free. I choose the design. (Obviously, it’s important to be wary and selective with someone. And this is not meant to be self promotional, I just want to help support GENUINE personal/community GROWTH).

The final design is at the artist’s discretion, but they’ll work with the client for input and make it a full collaboration.\nThere are no limitations to what Fredo and his artists will tackle. “Everything can be covered up with something,” Fredo explained. “And it can be done beautifully, as well.”\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Fredo Ink (@fredo_ink) on Jun 13, 2020 at 8:15pm PDT\nFredo Ink&Co. have been getting so many requests, he says, that they’re actually struggling to keep up.
