Dear Rachael: HOW CAN I WIPE OUT A TATTOO BLUNDER?

Byline: Rachael

Q I HAD a tattoo done last month to impress my mates - but now I really hate it. Most of my friends had tattoos and bellybutton piercings done in the summer and I felt like the odd one out. But the other day I was in town with my friend and as we passed the tattoo parlour she dared me to go in.

I had a dolphin on my shoulder but the next day I knew it was a mistake. I've hidden it from my Mum so far but I really hate it and want to get rid of it.

I've heard there's a new treatment available that can remove tattoos without scarring? How do I get it? I'm desperate.

A TRY to calm down first, Gemma. It's not the end of the world. You rushed into having your tattoo and now regret it so please DON'T rush into getting rid of it without proper medical advice.

Talk to your Mum and tell her what a prat you feel - it will help get things into proportion. Ask your GP to refer you to a dermatologist or clinic that can help remove the tattoo.

In the meantime, ask the make-up girls in your local department store for advice on the best way to cover it up.
