    Is it something so offensive or a past partners name etc? I can't think why one would want a tattoo removed otherwise.

    A tattoo is part of you and your life, you obviously wanted it enough to get it when you did, so i think they should all stay.

    I had my childrens initials done, however like a clown it was on my neck one each side,just back of the ear and down a tad ( same location as Robbie Williams has his neck tattoo)

    It's causing me employment issues so they have to go. It sends out the wrong signal, even more so because now when I turn the tv on everyone on Jeremy Kyle has one in the very same place :(

    More painfull getting it removed than getting it done in my case

    Is it expensive?

    Not that i want any removed.I have a couple of small ones i dont like anymore,but i'm going to get them covered up.Surely that would be cheaper? and less painful ;)






    EDIT: Now i know where you have them i know the reason for removal.

    It's way cheaper than it used to be, a girl at work is getting some raggedy arsed tweety pie removed from her leg, about £90 I think she said.

    Covering up my neck tattoos with another tattoo won't help my issue of tattoos on my neck making work a bit harder to get ;)

    Most places seem to be charging around £50-60 per session per tattoo, this can increase with bigger tattoos.

    I managed to get it agreed at £15 a session per tattoo. Which is a bonus when we budgeted about £50 a session per tattoo, guessing about 5 sessions (£500 total to remove both)

    I can explain the pain as: you know when you snap a really big elastic band, pulled really far off your finger, it's like that with the cracking noise every second.

    Quite a cool machine however.
    The destructive child in me wants to blast ants and spiders etc with the machine and see often explode

    Why do people insist on having tattoos done on their NECKS, of all places? Especially names in handwritten form? I've never gotten the appeal of that.

    Well, I've never gotten the appeal of tattoos full-stop, but I think it's a relatively harmless form of body decoration.

    Piercings, on the other hand, especially through places OTHER than earlobes - YUUUUCK!!

    Out of curiosity, why is piercing worse than tattoo?

    Tattoos have to be removed, whereas with piercings you remove the jewellery and generally the hole isn't noticable (unless they have done stretching)

    What about people who insist on having tongue piercings? Risk of infection, or severing a major artery in the tongue, or even risk of swallowing the stud in the tongue once its in. And it looks disgusting, too.

    Surely you're not telling me you're going to defend peoples' right to body piercings? They should be banned!

    Tattooing, with just as much of a risk of infection, is the lesser of two evils, and it can look artistic and even beautiful as well.

    I have a mate who does body piercing.Are you telling me he should lose his job because you don't like piercings? :facepalm:

    Also think you're going overboard with the risks,sure there's some bodgers about,but a proper piercer knows what they're doing.

    Not really related to my question though. If someone with a tongue piercing took it out, whats left, a tongue with a hole that heals or minimises. The tattoo stays, can blur/fade etc with older inks, or just be badly drawn in the first place.

    Personally I say have as many tattoos or piercings as you want, its your body. People may judge you for your looks, and only you can judge if you can accept that or not or if you want to change that

    What about people who insist on eating and drinking too much? Risk of diabetes, hernias!!, or clogged arteries, not to mention the beer belly which looks disgusting, too.

    Surely you're not telling me you're going to defend peoples' right to eat and drink to excess? It should be banned!

    You are the first person I have ever heard want to ban tattoos / piercings due to risk! Lots of people don't like them (including you) which is fine, but really if you are going to stop someone doing it due to risk, then logically you have to stop them doing everying that is more risky than getting a piercing - care to have a guess at how many things that is? :)

    Yes there is a risk involved with any piercing. There is also a risk in getting up in the morning and crossing the road! These risks are minimised by taking care and doing things properly - for crossing the road we have the green cross code and crossings - with piercings we have trained piercers and health agency registered studios - both minimise the risk involved.

    I have had many piercings over the last 15 years and have loved them all, none more so than my tongue piercing which was with me for nearly ten years. A major advantage of piercings is their non-permanence, if you decide you don't want it anymore, just take it out. No mess, no fuss !!

    As for the swallowing the jewellery, if it's tightened properly then it isn't coming undone on its own, they take some effort if used correctly.

    Once again I've written before my mind has thought about the consequences. :facepalm: (there, self-inflicted facepalm, to save people the trouble) ;)

    I also guess I've come across as such a hypocrite, considering what I've posted in the past, and I didn't really mean to offend, just stating my opinion of the subject, even if it came across as more than just my opinion.

    But hygiene issues with a toothbrush? It does sort of ring a bell, but that was in the distant past and I can't remember what I specifically did. I don't recall ever sharing a toothbrush with someone else, if that's what it is - would the poster who mentioned this above remind me?

    No offence taken, just highlighting that the risk can be minimised to the point where it is relatively safe. :)

    Nothing wrong with tattoos in general, I have several and dont regret any of them but neck tattoos are the pits just makes you look like an ex con smack addict on a bad day hence the OP finding it affecting his job prospects.

    Well it doesn't hurt today. Just looks like a newly done tattoo at the moment.
    I've been told wont begin to see any of the tattoo breaking down until around the 3rd/4th week. Then once it seems to of healed on to the next session of being zapped

    Will it leave scars?

    Someone i know had a tattoo removed and the scar left behind,looked far worse than the tattoo.Although this was years ago so i suspect methods have moved on since then.

    I judge anyone who has any of these things done by their stupidity for having them.
    If they're stupid enough to have them they're too stupid to trust with anything.

    I agree- Always think of them on women as 'tramp stamps' and make men just look stupid.

    If I was looking to employ someone and two guys had similar experience/background and one had tatoos and one didn't I would employ the sensible guys who had no tatoo....

    A friend of mine is getting a small dolphin removed from her shoulder. 6 sessions in and I can't see any progress.
