A southern Kentucky tattoo shop is helping people cover old mistakes for free in light of the civil unrest across the country.

"I just wanted to help out in some way," said Jeremiah Swift, a tattoo artist at Gallery X Art Collective in Murray, Kentucky. "It's the only platform I have."

The free services apply if a hate or gang symbol is being covered.

Jennifer Tucker told KFVS that she took the tattoo shop up on its offer to get a tattoo of a Confederate flag covered on her ankle that she got when she was 18.

"It's a symbol of hatred and I want it off me," she told the TV station.
