"$10,000 to remove a prisoner's facial tattoos?" 10 October, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000286

Three men are sitting in a pub with their beer discussing an item that one of them is reading about in the newspaper. In the first strip they discuss the cost of removing facial tattoos from prisoners and the man who seems to be a bit of a soft touch says the cost is worth it if it prevents the prisoner from returning to prison. When the others express puzzlement about why tattoo removal might keep someone out of prison, the man with the soft touch says that it would be because the police would find it harder to identify and catch the criminal.
