MAB TATTS Teams Up With Go Tattless to Help Sex Trafficking Victims Move On

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) -  MAB TATTS (http://www.mabtatts.com) -- an organization that helps remove tattoos from sex trafficking victims, former gang members and anyone who wishes to remove a permanent tattoo -- has partnered with Go Tattless to provide an even more efficient tattoo removal process.

According to recent statistics, every 30 seconds another person becomes a victim of human trafficking. Experts say that many of the victims either start out in erotic dancing and or by seeing clients outside of adult clubs at a young age. Currently, Arizona ranks sixth for most human trafficking in the U.S. This criminal industry is fed by greed, generating an estimated $32 billion per year.

Furthermore, an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, with about 80% of trafficking victims being women and children. Women working in the sex trade are often tattooed with the names of their pimps, scarring them for life.

MAB TATTS is a 501c3 charity on a mission to help those that have been "branded" (tattooed) in the sex trafficking industry by removing their tattoos. Victims of this hideous black market industry are generally tattooed with a barcode or a symbol. MAB TATTS has partnered with numerous non-profit organizations in the Phoenix metropolitan area with the hope of bringing more awareness about this exploitation to the public.

"We are so excited about our new partnership with Go Tattless because their process has enabled us to remove the tattoo quicker than has been done previously," explained the founder of MAB TATTS, Gina Jernukian. "For the victims who live with these unwanted tattoos, our goal is to help them restore themselves from the inside out."

MAB TATTS tattoo removal service is designed to help people from all walks of life. This can range from war veterans wanting to remove harsh tattoos they may have gotten in the midst of serving our country during emotional and unimaginable conditions, to ex-gang members and others. MAB TATTS primary focus, though, is to remove tattoos from young girls that have been "branded" by the heinous act of human trafficking, so they can move on without being reminded daily of their past.
