Student reveals painful scars left when tattoo removal went horribly wrong

Pasuda Reaw, 21, had a large red rose tattooed across the chest last year, but regretted it so wanted to have it removed so that she would look more professional at work.

She tried Rejuvi – a chemical method applied to the skin – in February but within days the area had become itchy and painful.

The laser-free alternative applied with a small tattoo gun claims to raise ink pigments to the surface of the skin and create a scab that can be peeled off.

But two months later, Pasuda said she has suffered ‘torturous pain’ and been left with an unsightly scar across her chest.

The art student from Udon Thani, northern Thailand, said she did not like the tattoo anymore and wanted it removed for when she was working.

She said: ‘At first Rejuvi seemed like a good way to remove the tattoo. I did not want to use lasers.


‘I began the treatment and immediately it was itchy and hurting a lot. The skin has taken a long time to come off. It was like torture and I could not sleep.

‘What is left if worse than before. I do not recommend this treatment because it hurts so bad and takes a long time.

‘Laser is a lot of money but I wish I had done that. At times the pain of the itching and the scar were unbearable.

‘I shared pictures as a warning to others to be so careful about what they do.’

Pasuda said that after returning home from the clinic on February 4 she ‘could not sleep’ because of a stinging sensation.

She cried all night and ten days later the area had started to fill with puss and the skin was peeling.

On March 2 she pulled off the tattoo, leaving wounds on the skin. By May 7, there was still a large pink raised scar.

Pasuda’s tattoo has now been removed but she has a large mass of pink scar tissue on her chest.

Rejuvi Labs was founded in 1988 by Dr. Wade Cheng, a biochemist in the San Francisco Bay area.

They state that a tattoo may be completely removed in just three or four sessions ‘using a high specification digital permanent make-up machine’.
