The Finery Gives Back


The Finery’s INK (I Now Know) program is a community outreach initiative designed to provide safe, effective, and free tattoo removal on the hands, neck, and/or face of people who were formerly incarcerated, gang members, or survivors of human trafficking. For every new customer that walks through our doors, we donate a free tattoo removal treatment through our program.

While we appreciate people that have gone through a hard time and are working through and rising above challenges, unfortunately, we are only able to offer this service if you meet one or more of the below criteria:

  • – You were previously incarcerated
  • – You are a former gang member
  • – You are a survivor of human trafficking

The Finery does the easy part… we just run the laser. The clients in our program do the real work.

Old tattoos can be a painful reminder of a life left behind. By removing them we help our clients erase daily reminders of darker past days, leaving room for a brighter future and a better version of themselves. We want to empower people who’ve had the courage to change and help them feel confident when finding a new job.

Please note: The Finery Ink Program is not state or federally funded and we do this to give back to the community. We reserve the right to approve individuals that meet our specific criteria and give all individuals appropriate consideration.

The Finery Philly Team with Terrance Lewis

The finery celebrates national tattoo removal day

On Wednesday, August 14 we celebrated National Tattoo Removal Day at The Finery by recognizing the INK Program.
We were so pleased to welcome Fox29’s Good Day Philadelphia team and NBC10 news to our Philadelphia office spotlight our special guest of the day, Terrance Lewis.

After spending 21 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, Terrance Lewis was ready for a new start. On Wednesday, Terrance took a step toward a new life by walking into our Philadelphia office to remove painful reminders of his past.
Terrance was one of 23 people to receive free tattoo removal treatments at The Finery during National Tattoo Removal Day.
