Great news for people whose decision making skills are as bad as their tolerance for lasers. A Canadian PhD student called Alec Falkenham has invented a cream that he claims can effectively - and painlessly - remove someone's name from your arse. Or any other sort of tattoo for that matter.
Alec told CBC that the cream uses a method called bisphosphonate liposomal tattoo removal. Please doctor, speak English, we ain't scientists. It means the topical cream will create newer, stronger skin cells that will consume the cells filled with ink. After repeated use, the tattoo 'should' fade away.
That's Alec's 'should', not mine. Until we see the results, you should expect the koi fish you got after the full moon party to be with you for a while yet.
On that note, here are some terrible tatts.
