My Tattoo’s Story by Jeremy Hugoo

I enjoy this pain and burning feeling when the needle goes inside my skin. I want the feeling to stop, but at the same time I don’t. It’s like the pain makes me stronger.

I remember walking out of the shop feeling good. I’m like a new man. With this brand new tattoo on my flesh, I feel fresh.

My mom is going to kill me though…Oh well, she will deal with it.

I remember showing my tattoo to my friends and family and everyone saying: “It looks nice,” but their facial expressions were saying something very different.

The next day, I remember looking in the mirror and it felt like a dream, like I couldn’t really believe this tattoo was on me. At that moment, I think I forced myself to feel good about it, but deep inside, I knew it was a mistake.

For over two years I thought to myself I could work on it to make it look better, but I was always hesitant about adding more ink into the design. I thought it would just add more problems instead of fixing it.

I have spent over $1,200 on tattoo laser removal. I can’t even start describing the pain of the laser; it’s just intolerable. The tattoo is almost gone, but it’s still there. So before having a tattoo, make sure it’s what you want for the rest of your life, because it’s going to be there for a long time.
