Long Beach, CA (PressExposure) July 22, 2009 -- Military and law enforcement personnel who need to cover up their tattoos finally have an alternative to messy makeup or unsightly bandaids, thanks to an innovative new product: Ink Armor tattoo cover up sleeves.
The sleeves, available at http://www.inkarmor.com, come in light and sun tan colors, and in full and half sleeve designs. They are designed to be comfortable and breathable, even in hot weather.
They offer a way for people to express themselves with tattoos and still comply with their employerâs tattoo policies.
They also benefit people with extensive scarring or disfiguring skin conditions, explains Mo Nelson, co-founder of Ink Armor.
The company was founded by Nelson and Jill Langner, who both have extensive backgrounds in law enforcement and the military.
Nelson is a four year US Marine Corps Veteran. After being honorably discharged from the military, Mo joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. She worked as a Deputy Sheriff for six years until she was injured on patrol and forced to medically retire. She worked for several years in the Information Technology field and is now a licensed Private Investigator with the State of California.
Jill Langner retired from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after being injured on duty. Her fifteen year law enforcement career included working as a Patrol Deputy, Auto-Theft Detective and Sergeant in the L.A area.
Shortly after retiring, she became an American Red Cross volunteer. She worked with the Red Cross for two years and was deployed numerous times to the California wildfires and Hurricane Katrina.
âJill and I have always been very passionate about helping people,â Nelson explained. âWe wanted to create a company that could make a difference in people's lives. Thatâs why Ink Armor is committed to donating part of all sales proceeds to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.â
