Getting a tattoo on your face has to be up there with one of the more controversial things you can do in your life. Once you’ve tattooed your face, that’s it, it’s there forever. If you’re going to tattoo your face, you really have to be sure that it’s something you want to do, otherwise you have to deal with a lifetime of regret.
However, this man who did get his face tattooed, obviously wasn’t too sure about the design, as he is now paying hundreds of dollars to get it removed.
In the footage below, the man who has remained nameless, has pretty much the entire of the left side of his face tattooed. He can be seen sitting in a chair as the procedure of getting the tattoo removed begins. Amazingly, he doesn’t flinch throughout the whole thing (which is meant to be extremely painful), making it a mesmerizing watch and for some reason, strangely satisfying.
The video was uploaded onto the YouTube channel of Go! Tattoo Removal, and has since gone on to get over 230,000 views with many people criticizing the man for getting the tattoo in the first place, but also being intrigued by the procedure itself.
In a blog post on their website, Go! Tattoo Removal say that this is the man’s first procedure, and that it will take around 10-12 treatments over a two year period in order for him to get the result the he is after:
“This is their first laser tattoo removal treatment on half of their face, we treated both sides during the same visit. Most full removals will require 10-12 treatments over a one and a half to 2 year period.”
The company then go on to explain the materials are that are being used in the video and how the procedure works:
“The white “frosting” that appears immediately during the treatment is water vapor, a byproduct of the treatment. Within 10 minutes, this fades and is not a burn or blister. Towards the end of the his laser tattoo removal video you’ll see it fading near the client’s forehead, as that was the first place we started.
“In the left hand of this video is a hose, it’s a cryo-chiller, a device that blows extremely cold air onto the skin before and during a treatment to help reduce any short-term swelling, a common side effect. It is not a vacuum.”
It sounds like a pretty mad procedure to go through, and should definitely make you think twice before you get your face tattooed. A lot of people were impressed with the results the man received after just one sitting, which you can see below.
So what do you think? I think it’s a pretty effective job considering that was shot in real time so was reflective of how quickly one procedure can be done. Although, I’m still trying to work out exactly what it is that he has got on his face?
