Woman regrets getting squirting penis tattoo on her shoulder
“It was so easy to buy a tattoo gun off the internet for about £50,” says Holly Aston, of Birmingham. That’s her with the squirting penis tattoo on her right shoulder.
“You get the full kit of needles and ink and it’s easy to operate, though they give you no instructions about keeping it sterile. We were very lucky not to get an infection or blood poisoning. I had tattoo parties with my mates. We’d have some drinks and tattoo each other – it was stupid.
“I let my mates draw whatever they wanted. I have the word ‘Dyke’ on my ankle, and then one drew the penis on my shoulder. I knew what they were doing and didn’t mind at the time. It was just a joke and I thought it was funny. But then I woke up the next day, looked at it and thought ‘Oh God, what have I done?’. I had to keep it covered up in the summer; if I went swimming I tried to cover it with plasters because I didn’t want children seeing it. I turned down family holidays because I was hiding it from my mum and dad. I thought they’d kill me.
“I want to go to university this year and to be taken seriously without this silly tattoo, but I can’t afford the thousands of pounds it would cost to remove it.”
