A tattoo parlor in London decided to remove West-related tattoos for free after he made antisemitic statements.
The tattoo parlor said its offer to remove tattoos of the controversial rapper was a "natural extension" of its "second chances" project, which offers free tattoo laser removal to people seeking to rid themselves of certain types of ink. Several customers have contacted Naama about having their tattoos lasered off because of the procedure.
The Washington Post is reporting.
"We understand that tattoos can be triggering for some people and not everyone can afford to remove their tattoos," the company told The Washington Post in an email Thursday. It noted that one of the people who took them up on the offer said she was being trolled for her Ye-inspired tattoo.
The store said several people have contacted it in recent weeks to have their Ye tattoos lasered off — a procedure that can cost up to 2,000 pounds (about $2,400).
Ye's social media accounts were locked out over his past comments and posts. He appeared on Alex Jones's show wearing a balaclava. He told Jones that he liked Hitler and that every human has value.
Three clients are already in the middle of the tattoo removal process, and ten more are ready for consultations, according to Naama. Ye's comments onInfowars seem likely to increase that number.
