Sorry, but your ex-wife’s name probably isn’t considered racist.

A tattoo shop in St. Petersburg wants to help recovering racists with their bad tattoos.

Fredo Ink & Co, located at 1435 4th Street S., is offering to cover up anyone's racist tattoos, no questions asked. In a weekend Instagram post, the local shop stated “Let’s get this shit off your body.” Just know that there is a catch, the shop picks the tattoo. 

“Message me if you want your racist mistake covered for free,” said Fredo in the post. “I choose the design. (Obviously, it’s important to be wary and selective with someone. And this is not meant to be self promotional, I just want to help support GENUINE personal/community GROWTH).” 

Sorry, but your ex-wife’s name probably isn’t considered racist.
