WARSAW, Poland — A group in Poland is helping inmates find brighter futures by removing prison ink.

Huffington Post reports that Poland’s Pedagogium The College of Social Sciences and creative agency Isobar Poland helps female inmates cover up what they consider regrettable marks with larger designs.

The tattoos are provided free of charge and tattoo artists and parlors offer their space and efforts for the project.
