You can erase past mistakes — for a cost and a whole lot of pain.

When Tammy Lennox was 22, she decided it was time to to get a memorial tattoo to honour her grandmother.

She paid $120 and spent an hour in pain as a tattoo artist created a garden on the outside of her foot.

But the tattoo turned out to be a disaster. And the London, Ont., woman took steps to have it removed.

“I wanted it to look like a garden with fancy lettering, ivy and lots of colour,” said Lennox who is now 28 and works as a kindergarten teacher. “But no one can tell what it says — the letters are all squished together and it looks like a child drew it.”
