When I was in my late teens, I decided to get a tattoo. I was dating a girl at the time, and I thought that we would be together forever, so I had her name tattooed on my chest. We were madly in love, and we even started to make plans for getting married, but that eventually fell through and we broke up. The tattoo was a painful memory that I wanted to have removed, so I contacted the aesthetic doctors in Singapore to see if they could do something about it.
The doctors told me that they had a laser treatment that could take the tattoo away. Since it was a simple name tattoo made of only one color, they told me that it could be erased with 5 treatments. This was good, because I had heard stories about people getting tattoos removed that took over 20 treatments. Then again, their tattoos were much more elaborate. They had ones that were made of a lot of different colors and were much larger than the one I had. I was glad that I didn’t go with something a little crazier when I was dating the girl, or I would have really regretted it.
After five treatments, my chest was free of the tattoo. It was a bittersweet moment to see it finally go. On one hand, I didn’t have to see the tattoo anymore. On the other hand, it was like a part of my past was being erased, and even though things didn’t work out between me and the girl, we still had our happy moments. If I ever get involved with someone again and have talks of marriage, I’ll avoid getting another tattoo of their name. Of course, if someone wants to get a tattoo of my name, then I won’t stop them.
