18 Photos Which Prove That a Bad Tattoo Is Not the End of the World, It Can Always Be Fixed

People have been getting tattoos for hundreds of years, but in recent decades it’s become increasingly popular. However, as time goes on, not all owners of the coveted design are happy with the result. That’s why tattoo removal was invented. Historically, it has been done in the most unusual ways, including the use of garlic and pigeon poop. Later, thankfully, lasers were invented. But one of the popular methods is still a cover up — when the old tattoo is completely covered by a new one.
