According to, a recent survey found that men are turned off by tattoos on women. The British survey reported that 47 percent of men interviewed were not attracted to female tattoos.

Ink on men isn’t completely unnoticed, either. The Ask Jeeves survey found that 38 percent of women aren’t fond of men with tattoos.  In some cases, the attractiveness of a tattoo is contingent on who is sporting the ink. The poll found that 55 percent of adults think Amy Winehouse looks worse with ink, as opposed to the 17 percent who said the same thing about Megan Fox.

Of the Brits surveyed, 29 percent of people aged 16 to 44 reported to having at least one tattoo. The survey also reported that 23 percent of people with tattoos regretted getting their ink.

“We have noticed an increasing number of our users asking Jeeves about tattoo removal services and about the various ways to get rid of them,” spokesperson for the search engine, Nadia Kelly, told the Daily Mail.
If you are starting to regret that rose you had tattooed on your ankle when you were 18, never fear! Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to get rid of that unwanted ink.

During a laser tattoo treatment, the ink absorbs energy from the laser beam. The body gradually absorbs the ink molecules after they are destroyed.  Some tattoos may require numerous treatments based on their size, color, and age. Since the laser is attracted to pigments in the skin, darker tattoos usually respond better to the treatment. Minor redness and irritation is often experienced following a laser tattoo removal treatment, however, these side effects often fade within a week.
