An article on tattoo removal.

What they don’t tell you in the article, informative though it is, is that the stuff not only burns, it stinks. You smell like burnt flesh. And unlike the martyrs, you don’t smell like fresh bread. It’s horrendous. And the body parts sometimes swell. If it’s on your ankle, your whole leg can swell. So you have $2000 to get the thing off and it takes you a year because you have to wait between times.

Don’t get a tattoo.
