If there was a chance of scarring there was no way I was having it done.”But he had the procedure carried out on a test patch and then booked a full course of treatment but kept it a secret how much it cost to remove his blushes.The man, who doesn want to be named, had six treatments to make the tattoo no longer visible to the naked eye.”All I can say is that the whole process was amazing,” he added.”There is no scarring, and when friends who haven seen me for months come over, they always notice something is different. When they realise the tattoo is gone, they are shocked about how well the treatment has worked.”Donnalee, based in Swansea, said: “Tattoos have become more and more popular in recent years but research shows one in six people hate their tattoos and more than half regret having them done in the first place.”.
