Should I Erase History

I have had my tattoo for several years now. I got it when I was 18yrs old. I got this tattoo before they became as popluar as they are today. Every now and then I think about having it removed because it doesnt represent the lifestyle I live today it only represents the past. I used to be  involved with bad people and bad activities and i had a life changing event happen. should i get rid of it or keep as reminder of what not to do.

What was your life-changing event?? Do what you think is best for you to do. It could be a good reminder of the road you don't want to travel down anymore or it could just be a bad reminder of something you want to leave in the past. Do what your heart tells you to do.

If you keep it, use it as a reminder that you learned something. Your bad experiences make you the person you are as much as the good. Do you and yours like to look at it, or are the memories too painful?
