Whether you want to forget that drunken Vegas mistake or your ex’s name, there is a way to erase the past. At least from your skin.

Turns out, there are a lot of gifted artists who are able to transform unfortunate designs into beautiful works of art. Yes, there are limitations, and yes, sometimes the end result might not be what you had in mind initially, but as we at Bored Panda have already shown, a tattoo cover-up is a great alternative to laser removal and can help you regain confidence in your looks.

But in case we haven’t completely sold you on it (or we have but you just want to see more stunning examples), here’s a reminder. Or rather, a whole bunch of them!
