    This is how I got my tattoo removed.

    Well you see, I inquired about the laser thing but it's sooooo expensive and I'm a student so I can't really afford something that costs so much. So what I did was this crazy thing. For the tattoo to be removed, I need to burn it or melt my skin. So I took a spoon then I heated...

    So, I took the bandage off,

    and I immediately noticed a difference. I wasn't really even expecting much after the first session, so I was completely shocked. I still have a way to go,but this is a good sign:)

    I am having an emotional time

    though the removal process, and I think it is because I'm doing it for all the wrong reasons. My mom use to tell me I would never get a real job with it, my grandparents said I look like I belong in prison, and thus I hide it everyday because I am self conscious. I got the...

    I Hate My Ink.

    I got my first 2 tattoos very young. I'd love to have them removed more than covered. In the mean time, I just do nothing.

    I Feel So Stupid

    After years and years of wanting a tattoo, I finally went and got one with my boyfriend.  It's a design that I love and that has great meaning for me, but I got it on my upper back.  Now, I just want it gone.  I HATE that it's so large, that I can only wear certain...
