The National Skin Centre (NSC) will be partnering Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (SANA) to raise $50,000 for a tattoo removal programme for ex-offenders. 

The funds will be raised through a charity walk. 

Up to 80 ex-offenders will stand to benefit over the next two years. 

They will have their tattoos removed at a huge discount - under $200 for 10 sessions. 

SANA's executive director Abdul Karim said some ex-offenders struggle to find jobs and re-integrate into society because of visible tattoos and the programme would help them.
