119 Programs For Tattoo Removal In Juveniles

In a news conference held in April '94, San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer
announced a new program that would help young people to remove unwanted
tattoos. $15,000 from the San Jose BEST anti-gang grant program will pay
for the tattoo removal from about 100 people. Hammer said she will seek
additional funding.

"I want to send a message to every young person troubled by the presence
of a tattoo," Hammer said. "This program is about you and about your
dream." The service is being provided by plastic surgeon Josh Korman,
who is donating his time.

Another program to remove juveniles' tattoos is funded by the
California Youth Authority. People under 25 can have tattoos removed
in exchange for performing 30 hours of community service. In Southern
California, this program is administered by the Hollywood Sunset Free
Clinic. Information about this can be found at:
