Mission Statement:

Soul Survivor Ink helps survivors of human trafficking begin new lives by providing access to necessary resources along their difficult journey to healing, removing tattoos and other physical reminders of a painful past. We also advocate on their behalf as they become the extraordinary individuals they were created to be.


STEP is a web-based solution created in collaboration with sex trafficking survivors to provide quick and easy access to a wealth of resources across the United States for victims and survivors of sex trafficking. Victims of sex trafficking need a wide range of resources to aid them in leaving a painful life and creating a new, better one. Unfortunately, finding the right support can be difficult, confusing, and time consuming. STEP gives users a one-stop location to find shelter, food, counseling, STD screenings, family planning, legal assistance, tattoo removal, and other resources they need in their area to support them on their journey to a better life.

An organization can be listed as a resource on the STEP app for a free sign up fee and a small annual fee starting in the second year. STEP is a non-profit so all proceeds go to the administration of the website and resource provider engagement. STEP is part of Soul Survivor Ink, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.

Who we are

Soul Survivor Ink, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on helping survivors of human trafficking and prior gang affiliation heal from the pain of their past through “branding” tattoo and scar removal. We pride ourselves on the use of only non-invasive removal technologies. We have exceptional partnerships with organizations who care for survivors that have been forced to endure such horrific experiences.

We come alongside the survivor and are with them throughout the entire process. We partner with organizations nationwide to refer survivors to our certified and trained affiliate technicians. We ensure the safety and privacy of the procedures, so the survivor won’t have to endure additional traumas. Ultimately, the goal of Soul Survivor Ink is to eliminate all “branding” tattoos providing hope for an emotional, spiritual, and physical release from the survivor’s painful past.
