Five celebrities that have undergone laser tattoo removal
19th September 2012
Many people that have tattoos have art work that represents someone or something special in their life. Others have body art that is chosen completely off the cuff, for no real reason other than they liked the design.
Unfortunately, some individuals grow to dislike their tattoos, and want them to be removed. This is not as easy as it sounds - removal creams, for example, often fail to take off the whole tattoo, particularly ones that are large in size or colourful. Similarly, treatments that involve incisions or burning the skin can cause a lot of pain and - in the worst cases - even scarring.
There is a common misconception that treatments like laser tattoo removal are extremely painful - and expensive too. But here at sk:n, we can produce fantastic results, with only minor irritation to the skin!
What's more, laser treatments are safe and cheaper than you might expect. Whilst several sessions may be required for full removal, we can ensure that your unwanted body art is removed with the minimum of fuss.
For further proof, let's have a look at some famous faces that have undergone laser tattoo removal:
Angelina had the name of her then husband Billy Bob Thornton tattooed on her left upper arm. Unfortunately, that marriage didn't work out, so she had that tattoo removed and replaced it with some new body art that states the birthplace of her children.
Hollywood heartthrob Johnny was a bit of a wild child as a younger man, and had Winona Forever tattooed on his arm to symbolise his relationship with actress Winona Ryder. Alas, things weren't meant to be, so he had it changed to Wino Forever, thanks to some cunning laser work.
A few years ago there was a cool new religion called Kabbalah that swept through celebrity circles, thanks mostly to Madonna's very public pronouncements. Britney Spears was sold, and had a message in Hebrew tattooed onto the back of her neck.
But Ms Spears soon decided that Kabbalah was not for her, and the tattoo was removed.
Many people seek laser treatments to remove tattoos that may affect their chances of getting a new job or progressing their current career. Former gangster rapper 50 Cent is no different.
50, or Curtis Jackson as he is commonly known these days, wants to pursue a career in acting, so has had most of his tattoos removed so that he can play a wider variety of parts.
No stranger to the tattooists needle, Megan Fox has decided that some of the body art she had when she was younger is no longer relevant to her personality now.
As a result, she has three tattoos removed in total, including a caricature of Marilyn Monroe on her lower arm.
