Scary! Student Left with Horrific Scar After Trying to Remove Tattoo Using New Laser-free Chemical Method (Graphic Photos) - 4 years ago
A Thai student was left with agonising scars on her chest after a treatment that peels tattoos off using chemicals went horribly wrong, Sun UK reports. The woman identified as Pasuda Reaw, 21, had the large red rose tattooed across her chest last year but wanted to look more professional at work. She tried Rejuvi – a laser-free chemical method that uses a small tattoo gun to raise ink pigments to the surface of the skin and create a scab that can be peeled off – and is widely used in the UK. Within days of undergoing the process in February the area had become itchy and painful. But two months later, Pasuda said she has suffered “torturous pain” and been left with an unsightly scar across her chest. The art student from Udon Thani, in northern Thailand, said: “At first Rejuvi seemed like a good way to remove the tattoo. I did not want to use lasers. “I began the treatment and immediately it was itchy and hurting a lot. The skin has taken a long time to come off. It was like torture and I could not sleep. “What is left is worse than before. I do not recommend this treatment because it hurts so bad and takes a long time. “Laser is a lot of money but I wish I had done that. At times the pain of the itching and the scar were unbearable. “I shared the pictures as a warning to others to be so careful about what they do.” Pasuda said that after returning home from the clinic on February 4 she could not sleep because of a stinging sensation. She cried all night and ten days later the area had started to fill with puss and the skin began peeling off. On March 2 she pulled off the tattoo, leaving wounds on the skin. By May 7, there was still a large pink raised scar.
