Tabitha Renea West has already collected more than $340 from 28 people since her campaign launched Wednesday. The page had more than 11,000 shares just before noon Thursday.
West said she wants to remove the tattoo from her head to “have a better start out in life and have a second chance.” She apparently got the tattoo when she was “young n (sic) dumb.”
Now that she’s older and looking for a job, she said she “can’t stand to look” at her face anymore and was almost driven to suicide over it.
“Save a life, save me,” she wrote. “Invest in me and I will show you I can be better with my life.”
