Our Tattoo Philosophy

If you were to walk into the offices at Ink Release, you would immediately sense the pro-tattoo atmosphere, both in staffers and in workspace. That's because unlike some clinics that don't know (and don't want to know) anything about tattoo art, except how to get rid of it, our staff embraces and appreciates the art form and it's power to communicate and inspire. What we don't love, however, are those tattoos that have become a problem for their owners, and are preventing them from advancing forward with their lives. In that case, it's time for those tattoos to face the bright light.

We would be lying if our staffers claimed to not feel just a little bit of guilt over being a party to the destruction of some pretty nice art, but sometimes even a beautiful, well-crafted tattoo can become a liability as a person advances through life, and when that happens, it's time for it to go. If it is a valued or sentimental tattoo, we'll make sure it gets the sendoff it deserves, with some good photos and maybe a raised glass or two. If it's quite the opposite situation, we'll send it off to it's oblivion, never to be thought of again. Either way, it's removal is a life milestone signaling both an end and a new beginning. It is this new beginning that we seek to provide for our clients, because once a person has let go of the past, freeing themselves of failures and disappointments, they can embrace a new perspective - a fresh look at the future and all the wonderful possibilities it holds.
