California Tattoo Removal Business Surges Amid Deportation Fears

A California tattoo removal clinic is seeing a record number of clients since the 2016 election who worry that their tattoos will prompt immigration officials to single them out as targets for deportation.
The number of customers for the tattoo removal business has doubled as some in the Latino community in San Pablo worry that immigration agents will use their tattoos as an excuse to ask about immigration status, KPIX reported.

People normally come to the business to get tattoos removed for job interviews, or to get rid of an ex-lover’s name, but the clinic says deportation is a new reason.

“A lot of people don’t want to be a moving target or even seen as a target,” says Nora Ruiz of the San Pablo Economic Development Corporation. “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.”

There is no evidence that those with tattoos are being singled out by immigration officials, but people with criminal backgrounds or gang ties could be at risk.

Immigrants are also canceling their food stamps and foregoing doctor visits over fears immigration agents will use the records kept with agencies or doctor’s offices to track them down and deport them.

Trumps spurring more economic growth and slashing medical/entitlement costs already! How can someone hate this guy?

A boon to the tattoo removal industry. Cutting down on food stamp costs, and driving down costs of Medicaid.

Heck next thing we know they'll be self deporting themselves and saving us the bus/plane tickets.

MAGA!

Amid heightened paranoia in the country's immigrant communities, South Philadelphia can bid this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration, "Hasta luego."

El Carnaval de Puebla, which for a decade has drawn thousands of revelers to South Philly, won't move ahead as planned this year for fear that attendees -- many of whom travel from other American cities and Mexico -- could be targeted by federal immigration agents, event organizer Edgar Ramirez said.
"We don't want any incidents. There's a little bit of fear in the community," he said. "It's sad to cancel the event, but we don't want difficulties for anyone."

Wasn't there an episode on "Sons Of Anarchy" where the ex-gang member was offered his choice of knife or blowtorch for his tattoo removal?

I like it when illegals are scared, I want them to wet their pants every day. I want them to be seriously uncomfortable and then maybe they'll self-deport.

I know a multi-millionaire who owns three laser hair and tattoo removal studios.

Her best location is in a strip mall between a Gold's Gym and an armed forces recruiting station.

Hairies from one end, tatters from the 'tother.

For a while it was open 1000-2100 7 days a week.
