A local tattoo shop is joining the fight to stop hate speech in the U.S.
Jamy Magee of the Parlour Hair & Ink studio in Sand Springs said he was fed up with hate and political battles on social media, so he decided to do something positive for his community.
He is offering free tattoo cover-ups for any hate or gang-related tattoos until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
He told FOX23 the offer is available on a first come, first served basis, but he is taking walk-ins.
He said his goal is to stop the hate in the 918.
To help decipher the gang tattoos, he has a member of law enforcement on-hand to determine if the tattoo is a gang tattoo.
Those who are unable to get their tattoos covered up Tuesday will be able to receive a coupon for a $60 credit to get gang-related tattoos covered up at a later date.
