Ex's tattoo removal at a discount

EDGEWOOD, KY (FOX19) - A unique Valentine’s special being offered by a northern Kentucky business could help you forget about those past relationships that didn’t quite work out.

Invisible Ink Tattoo Removal in Edgewood, Ky. is offering up to $500 off the removal of an ex’s name or initials. The discount depends on the size of the tattoo but the company is offering the deal through the end of the month of February.

“(Name removal is) probably 50 percent of our clientele,” General Manager Blake Koors said. “It’s pretty close to that. It’s all about change, everybody wants a change and everyone has regret and obviously an ex’s name would be a regret.”

The work is done by using a laser tool to remove the old ink. Koors says the tool will “shatter” the old ink by using photo-acoustic pressure.

The deal is known as the “old flame promotion” for those who have had relationships end in cold-hard heartbreak but are still left with a permanent reminder. The procedure isn’t entirely painless but Koors says it’s no worse than the pain of getting the tattoo in the first place and the company does offer clients a numbing cream.

“It’s extremely, extremely quick,” Koors said. “If (the tattoo) was a business card size, I would say it would take up to, maybe, 10 seconds.”
