The tattoo I’m having removed, is a cover up tattoo of a tattoo I wish I never had. So I knew as it was a double tattoo I would have to have more treatments than if it was just a single tattoo. This was fully explained to me in my initial consultation, which was both professional and thorough. It was a reassuring discussion and more in-depth than I had anticipated.
I had my tattoo done about nine or ten years ago, at a time when I wanted to rebel against my mother, who told me not to get any more. I decided to get it removed because, over time, I found it to be tacky and childish and it’s in a position that is difficult to cover. My sister is getting married and I didn’t want to have it on show as a maid of honour.
I have a tattoo on my wrist and on my ankle which I regretfully got at a very young age. I love tattoos and have since had 2 full sleeves and a chest piece done but wasn’t happy at all with these old ones and wanted them removing.
I’d wanted a tattoo of an owl for many years. They were my mum’s favourite animal and they’re mine, so I knew that no matter what, it would always be something that meant something to me. I spent months and months searching for the perfect owl and after trying and failing to find one I loved I sought out a tattoo artist I knew was excellent and asked her to design one for me.
