Burning away hate: Hamilton tattoo shop offering free laser removal of racist tattoos

n the last 24 hours, Memphis Cadeau has been bludgeoned with hundreds of stories of some of the world's most appalling horrors.

Strangers have told her about their experiences with human trafficking and abusive relationships. She's heard about racism, gang life and forced branding.

Cadeau is no therapist — she's the co-owner of Hamilton's Grim City Tattoo Club. The shop just announced that starting this month, it will offer free laser tattoo removal of all racist imagery or symbols, human trafficking tattoos, marks from radiation treatments, and other tattoos or skin discolourations linked to traumatic events.
