During the Black Lives Matter movement we all have had an eye opening experience from the way we understand certain matters pertaining to different races down to the tattoos we have on our body. Ryun King's Tattoo Parlor at Gallery X Art Collective in Murray, Kentucky is here for the BLM movement and is offering free tattoo removal.
Ryun King's tattoo removal services is offered to those who want to correct racial tattoos or erase gang symbols.
As we learn more about what environment and circumstances that were forced upon our people of color we can't look away anymore. Gangs were a method to protect one another from oppression and to provide security that our communities were neglecting.
Removing tattoos that embraces oppression is a serious movement all on its own. We are saying we are not settling for less anymore by advocating the lack of basic human rights on our very own skin. We are here to let the color of our skin be our story.
There is only one race and we do not need to adhere to racial standards as means to survival.
Minorities will no longer self sabotage their own heritage. We are all here for change and it's an incredible opportunity that Ryun King's tattoo removal services are granting us. It's never too late for change and no mistake is permanent. Be kind to yourself we are all learning to be true to who we are.
"We have been flooded with hundreds and hundreds of messages, emails. It's immeasurable... We have people that just call our phones 24/7 for either something that they want covered, or just for a thank you." - Ryun King
Ryun King started his own movement as he inspired tattoo artist Jenni Rivera from Maryville, Tennessee.
"I'm booked out for the rest of the year doing one a week," she said. "And I've got 150 people on the list for next year, and I still have 300 texts to go through. It's insane." - Jenni Rivera
