India’s story

IN PROGRESS

London-based TV producer, India Meres, talks about her laser tattoo removal journey with NAAMA. Here is her story.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is India Opie Meres and I’m a 28-year-old TV producer living in London. I have 10 tattoos.The tattoo I’m having removed is a pair of crying eyes on my inner upper arm. I got it when I was 22 and it was definitely a rushed decision! I didn’t like its placement and felt it was much too big.

“I wanted to have the removal somewhere I trusted and felt comfortable. Everyone at NAAMA is warm and friendly, and it feels more like a nice cosmetic treatment in terms of atmosphere than an intimidating one.”

Tell us about your tattoo you are having removed.

I really love tattoos and felt like it was preventing me from getting more. It made me feel very self-conscious about my arms, I was always covering them up! My best friend asked me to be Maid of Honour at her wedding and I immediately knew I didn’t want it in the pictures, so I took the leap to have it removed. I’d been thinking about it for a long time but always put it off.

Ink particles begin to break down even further and tattoo starts to fade.

Sesssion 6

Some areas are more stubborn due to the technique used by a tattoo artist. Ink in places is denser and therefore takes longer to break down.

What stage are you at in your removal journey?

I think I need a couple more sessions! I got the tattoo in 2017. I started the removal session in 2019, but then the pandemic hit so I had to take a few long pauses! I am much more relaxed and confident when it comes to getting dressed! The tattoo removal experience at NAAMA has been really positive. The treatments are fast, and although slightly painful, it is over quickly, and you’re made to feel very relaxed. I wanted to have the removal somewhere I trusted and felt comfortable. Everyone at NAAMA is warm and friendly, and it feels more like a nice cosmetic treatment in terms of atmosphere rather than an intimidating one.
