Graphice pics: Student left with horrific scar after trying to remove tattoo using laser-free method
The 21-year-old used a laser-free technique which can be applied with a small tattoo gun. The treatment is believed to raise ink pigments to the surface of the skin and create a scab that can be peeled off. However, two months later, Pasuda began to suffer a tortuous pain and was left with a scar across her chest. She revealed that after returning home from the clinic on February 4 she could not sleep because of a stinging sensation. She cried for most of that night, and 10 days later the area 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, an art student from Udon Thani, northern Thailand, decided to share the photos of her scar to serve as a warning to others thinking of doing the same. Speaking of the experience, 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 is 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's tattoo has now been removed but she still has a large pink scar tissue on her chest.
