I have never had a tattoo removed but I know people that have (laser surgery) and they liken it to having an elastic band snapped against your skin repeatedly.
Don't know, I've never regretted all mine. They make a much better job of it, these days. Maybe get it covered? Unless, you don't want a tattoo, at all.
I hear it's very painful. That's why I end up wearing long sleeves in the summer because of my work. LOL Still no regrets just wish i had kept them higher on the arms.
Not surprised at this...at all...
You'll require laser surgery to effectively remove it...
Maybe consider a cover up?
