When I was a lot younger, I did something very stupid. I was out with my boyfriend at the time, and we decided to show the world just how much we loved each other by getting each other’s names tattooed on ourselves. He had my name tattooed on his arm, and I had his name on my chest. Well, that would have been great if we had stayed together. Instead, we broke up about a year later. It was a daily reminder of my heartache, and I decided to look into medical aesthetics in Singapore to see if there was a procedure that I could have that would remove the tattoo.
When I read that red tattoos can require more treatments, I was really dismayed. My tattoo was mostly red, so I was concerned that I would be stuck with it for the rest of my life. I knew that there was no chance of ever getting back with him, and I just wanted that reminder completely erased. I made an appointment, and they told me the same thing that I had read about. The one good thing too was they said that even if it did not come completely off, that it would still be mostly gone.
I figured if I had any remnants of it, then I would simply have another tattoo placed there to cover it up. I honestly did not want that though because I just wanted to look in the mirror and not see anything there. I ended up having 18 laser treatments, and there is not a mark at all on my chest now. If anyone were to look, there is no evidence that a tattoo was ever there. I am a lot smarter now, and I will never have another person’s name tattooed on my body for any reason!
