Recently, Elizabeth and Dave decided they want to use their tattoo skills to give back to the community. So they made made this post on Facebook, offering to cover up any racist or gang-related tattoo, no questions asked, free of charge.
Instead of getting paid, the Cutlips just ask that anyone who gets a free cover-up pays it forward. “If we can donate our time to better our community, then hopefully other people will say, you know what I can donate my time,” Elizabeth said.
Random Acts of Tattoo's mission is to help cover up hateful tattoos not just in the Brooklyn Park area, but across the country. They'll also use the donations to pay for full tattoo removals, in cases where the original tattoo cannot be covered.
“Our goal was to help ex gang members in Baltimore cover their gang and racist tattoos so that they could get rid of the constant reminder of a past life,” Elizabeth said. “We believe that there is enough hate in this world and we want to make a difference.”
