All brown girls have done something they regret in the throws of adolescence and young adulthood.  The first boy we kissed, may have been a loser.  The first car we brought, may have been a dud.  And that time you let your best friend convince you that Dark N’ Lovely Luminous Blonde Hair Color would look the same on you as it does on the box.  Yeah, that was one of my bigger mistakes.

Fortunately, all those things can be done over.  The first boy you kissed doesn’t have to be the one you marry, you can always save up some cash to buy another car and the pink hair that was supposed to be blonde eventually grew out.  But, there are some mistakes that seem to follow you to the ends of the Earth, like a tattoo.

Not all moms hate their tattoos.  Mamas who went the cute butterfly on the lower back, or rose on the upper thigh route may be okay with their pretty ink.  But, those two paw prints splattered across your cleavage (because Eve just looked soooo cute in the “Ruff Ryderz Anthem” video), well those babies are a mistake that most moms grow to regret.  The good news is, you’re not alone.  There are roughly 9 million Americans who regret there tattoos.

Fortunately, a new FDA-approved laser technology is now accessible to help moms who have outgrown their tattoos of younger years through Invisible Ink Tattoo Removers.  Courtesy of this new technique the tattoo removal process can be completed in half the time with the same amount of pain as getting the tattoo.  Check out this video that describes the method.

If you’re amazed by what you see, like I was, you’re in luck.  Invisible Ink is a Pittsburgh tattoo removal service located right in Robinson Township.  They offer a free consultation (just click here) and guarantee your results once you’ve began the tattoo removal process.

So if you’re thinking that it’s time for the two paw prints to run away, check out Invisible Ink.  Here is their website and Facebook page.
