There is nothing quite like going to a stag party and perhaps there are many men out there who have appreciated one of these reckless evenings. The unfortunate part about going to a stag party, however, is the fact that eventually we are going to wake up in the morning and we often have to deal with the after-effects. In some cases, those effects may last for a few hours but at other times, they could last for a lifetime.
When this man from South Wales woke up after a night of carousing at a stag party, he had more than what he bargained for. More than likely, he had a hangover but that soon disappeared very quickly when he realized that he had a pair of sunglasses tattooed on his face. That’s right, the tattoo was a surprise and it was something that likely shocked him when he looked in the mirror.
I don’t know about you, but I would have a difficult time dealing with this type of trauma. It is bad enough when you wake up from a night out on the town and have to wonder exactly what you did the night before. This man didn’t have any doubt in his mind, although he likely had a few questions about how the tattoo got there.
Since the time that he had this tattoo, he has spent two years going through laser treatment to have it removed.
“I had no memory of getting the tattoo because I had gone out celebrating and it happened when I was drunk,” said this unnamed man.
“Waking up the morning after, I thought someone had used a permanent marker on my face. When I first came home, obviously I was subject to a lot of stares, but I kind of got used to the tattoo and decided not to get rid of it.”
The tattoo apparently was the result of a dare that occurred when he was inebriated. The brand name of the glasses are Ray-Ban. At first, he thought that he would keep the tattoo but when he got mocked at a pub, he decided to get rid of them.
“The next morning I really started to think about what my family and friends thought,” he said. “I didn’t want them to be embarrassed when they were out with me, so I decided there and then I was going to get it removed.”
Since that night, he has been regularly visiting a beauty clinic in his local area to undergo tattoo removal. Although the owner may have seen other tattoo mistakes, she said this one was the worst.
With six treatments, much of the tattoo was removed but there are still some turquoise markings in the area of the eyes. Eventually, they may clear up.
“All I can say is that the whole process was amazing,” the man said. “There is no scarring, and when friends who haven’t seen me for months come over, they always notice something is different.
“When they realise the tattoo is gone, they are shocked about how well the treatment has worked.”
Going out for a night on the town is one thing but perhaps this guy should buy a pair of sunglasses.
