Pharrell Gets Revolutionary Tattoo Surgery
The N.E.R.D frontman and fashion trend setter revealed this week to Brittish Vogue that his tattoos no longer fit his lifestyle and so he is trying a revolutionary new tattoo removal procedure, which involves applying replicated skin over old body art.
“It’s basically like getting a skin graft, but you’re not taking skin from your ass or your legs. These guys actually grow the skin for you,” he explained. “First you have to give them a sample of your skin, which they then replicate. Once that’s been done, they sew it on – and it’s seamless.”
The current–and most common– form of tattoo removal is laser treatment which is not only a lengthy process, but excruciatingly painful. The new grafting procedure should be a faster, less painful alternative.
Sound pricey? That’s because it is. While Pharrell wouldn’t give exact numbers, he did say that regardless of the price he plans to go ahead with the procedure:
“It’s going to be pricey, but worth it,” he says. “I got fire on my arms! I’m a grown man!”
(L note: When you get a tattoo for no reason other than to get it, you are naturally gonna regret it.That’s why all my tattoo’s mean something to me,they all have some great significance that i will never get rid of. you don’t wanna be 76 years old with Ren and Stimpy tattoo’d on your forearm.)
