I didn’t want to laser away my sticky ring tattoo – so I had it cut out

If she didn’t like it, maybe she shouldn’t have put a ring on it.

A woman wanted to get rid of an annoying tattoo on her finger because she later regretted it.

However, because she didn’t want to laser it off, she instead had it cut out in a procedure called “tattoo excision.”

A British plastic surgery group called UK Skin I posted a video of the procedure on her tiktok 3 days ago.

“A faster way to remove your tattoos ๐Ÿ‘€” reads the caption of the video, which has more than 1.4 million views.

In the clip, the surgeon injects an anesthetic into the unidentified woman’s finger before cleaning and preparing the area for surgery.

Then they put a green leaf with a hole on their hand, then cut off the tattoo, sewed up the finger and put a bandage over it.

People rushed to the video’s comments section to poke fun at the procedure.

“What ๐Ÿ˜ƒ is you’d rather cut your skin than have two laser sessions?? Hell no, and it was so tiny,” said one.

“Uhhhh seems overkill,” added another.

One woman said she didn't want to wait for laser hair removal because of an unwanted finger tattoo.

“Now what the heck would you do with a full arm cuff?” a third questioned.

UK Skin jokingly replied, “I’d buy a new arm.”

While some pointed fingers in shame, others indicated they were interested in the operation.

The surgeon then placed a green cloth over the woman's finger and removed the tattoo.

“I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT, AND IT EXISTS!?” wrote one amazed commenter.

“I would do the same,” said another.

To avoid getting an unwanted tattoo, one could choose not to get a tattoo at all, or think a little more carefully about the decision.

A millennial-year-old recently began warning “Get Zers” to wait until they’re older to get tattooed after voicing her tattoo regrets online.
