Removing Barriers Tattoo Removal Program

We are now booking on a first-come, first-serve basis. If we run out of space for the month, we have a 20-person waitlist and we'll prioritize you for the following month once we are cleared to return. We’ll be reaching out via phone and email to let everyone know and get you rescheduled.

The new address for Removing Barriers Clinic is 2801 Moran Ave, Richmond, CA 94804 at the West Contra Costa Salesian Boys and Girls Club.

Updated Clinic ProtocolPlease know that due to COVID-19, we're observing strict protocols and scaling down the clinic to ensure social distancing, below please find the protocols outlined.

  • No children or companions, unless you require a caretaker for ADA purposes, may accompany you inside the building.
  • If needed, be sure to shave the area to be treated before your appointment.
  • Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment and text us from your car to check-in. The # is ‪(510) 854-6644. If you check in later than that we cannot guarantee you will be seen. Bear with us - it's a new process and we need to follow all steps.
  • Masks are mandatory at all times unless or until the treatment nurse directs otherwise. Any non-compliance is grounds for dismissal without reimbursement.
  • Your temperature will be taken via a touchless infrared forehead thermometer and you will complete a COVID-19 disclaimer form on which we'll need your physical address and a number where you may be reached or we may leave a message; none of this information is optional due to tracing requirements.
  • We are not able to offer ice packs, cobane, or refreshments at this time; you may bring your own.
  • Signs are posted throughout the building with mandated social distancing and masks, as well as directions for sanitizing. All directives need to be complied with.
  • In the waiting room, you will need to remove any numbing cream. Ask the person at registration for a wipe and dispose of it in the garbage bin provided.

Thank you for all your patience, we hope you are all well and safe. Please remember to wash your hands!
