A tattoo can only be removed permanently if the person wishing to have the tattoo removed can provide an acceptable photo of the tattoo being removed in a way that is acceptable and not embarrassing. The surgery will be carried out at a specialist hospital to ensure that there are no complications. Surgery is only done after careful discussion amongst doctors, a consultation with a professional, and a decision of the patient, and family in consultation with the local council and the council authority. In the worst case scenario, there is the possibility that tattoos will remain on the body.
