You’re never too old to change! Here’s an interesting story; the oldest patient I have ever treated was also the youngest when she got her tattoo. It’s true; she was 82 years old when I removed the tattoo she got when she was only 12 years old. The tattoo was done in India ink and located on her right shoulder. It was the initials of someone’s name and she couldn’t remember whose initials they were! Let’s face it, we can forget a lot in 70 years. One thing she hadn’t forgotten was the beating she got when her father saw that tattoo the next morning. She told me she remembered that quite clearly. The artist was her brother; he also got a beating.
I noticed the skin around her tattoo was hypopigmented and I asked her why this was. She told me that she had been putting a piece of tape on that tattoo every day since the day after she’d gotten it! Now that’s some seriously old tattoo regret. This lady has one other distinction; she’s only one of three patients in my care who required just a single treatment to remove her tattoo. I saw her the other day and looked for it, but it was all gone. We’re never too old to change.
