Tattoo Removal is a painful procedure. The process includes several zaps from a laser in order to diminish the pigment of the tattoo. In fact, most people say that tattoo removal is far more painful than actually getting a tattoo. Sometimes, the laser can leave scars too. Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Taryn Manning, Pharrell Williams and 50 Cent are just some of the celebs that have chosen to rid their bodies of such things. Angelina chose lasers while Pharrell and 50 chose a new technique. It includes taking a piece of your skin and having it grown in a lab. Almost like skin grafting. Once the skin is grown they sew it over the tattoo. Since this a long procedure Pharrell and 50 also chose to have laser removal done as well.
Taryn Manning said "It feels like when you're cooking bacon and the grease comes out of the pan and stings you" (http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/story/taryns-tattoo-removal). Angelina removed her ex-husband's name and Beyonce removed a medium sized tattoo on her thigh. If you look closely you will see that that area of Beyonce's leg is a little lighter than the rest which she covers with body makeup. When getting a tattoo one should be sure of what they want, why they're getting it and the meaning behind it. Britney Spears got a Kanji word tattooed on her bikini line, and she later found it meant something offensive.
