I needed some work to be done in my house for which I interviewed a handyman. What struck me unusual about his appearance was a tattoo in the shape of a tear drop placed at the top of his left cheek. Just out of curiosity I searched online for the significance of such a design and the result left me open mouthed. A tattoo in the shape of a tear drop means that the person has murdered somebody! I didn’t want to take a chance and hired another person for the job. The man could have been completely innocent and have absolutely no clue about the significance of his tattoo.

Nowadays, plastic surgeons and dermatologists have quite a few cases where the people want tattoos removed. The reasons vary and problems with employment is one of them. Surveys have pointed out that tattoo removal has become quite common now.

Styles change very often and many tattoos that were the rage a few years ago are no longer in vogue. For instance, large and elaborate designs on the lower back were very fashionable some time back but today they are referred to a ‘tramp stamps’ making people run to have them removed. Other cases of tattoo regret reported are Chinese letters which mean something quite different from what the wearer thinks or the very common barbed wire on the arms of men. Tattoo fads change with changing times and this is true for celebrities as well as common people.

A recent case that springs to the mind is the faux pas made by famous actor Johnny Depp. He had inscribed his girl friend Winona Ryder’s name as a tattoo on his shoulder, a very visible part of his body. After they broke up he promptly changed it to ‘Wino Forever’ from ‘Winona Forever’.

If the ink used to inscribe the tattoos is infected, it can cause nontuberculous Mycobacteria. This was reported in an article which appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine recently. Treatment of such kind of infections is not easy and requires antibiotics or removal of the tattoos leaving the skin looking swollen and red for a long time, besides being painful.

The therapy is quite expensive and may cost several thousand dollars. The cost varies according to the location and size of the tattoo. A large amount of heat is used to remove tattoos and as a result discoloration or scarring of the skin cannot be ruled out.

So I asked her, “Just how bad is it?”

Very bad.
