Texas chaplain changes prisoners’ lives – by removing their tattoos

The successful progress of tattoo removal treatments for a former skinhead, Bryon Widner

A CHAPLAIN in Texas has found himself a new calling: removing tattoos for ex-prisoners.

Wayne Heintze, who works for the Harris County Sheriff’s Department in Houston, got the idea when he met a former gang member who was sure he would never get a job because of his tattoos.

Heintze learned how to remove ink from underneath skin.

And earlier this year, he and his wife Francine bought a laser and opened a small clinic.

They offer a big discount to gang members, prostitutes, burglars and other ex-cons in exchange for community service.

Heintze says it’s almost as if he is “able to erase a chapter of their life.”

Tattoo removal is part of a jail program that also offers offenders drug and job counseling.

    blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve
    read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
