Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

Obviously.  The price should factor in all direct costs, overheads, admin, taxes, depreciation, etc., etc., and a fair profit margin to actually generate some revenue to plough back in.

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

I caught part of a program in the early hours showing a man having laser surgery to remove teardrop tattoos from under his eyes (must have seemed a good idea at the time  ::))
Apparently it was extremely painful and several sessions were needed. I didn't catch whether he was having it done under the NHS or privately.

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

Tattooing and Body Piercing were a subject on a recent The Big Questions program.
One of the people on there was a man who had his entire body tattooed......including his eyeballs Shocked

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

I did a short job in Western Samoa where the local culture includes full body tattoos done with a needle on the end of a stick! Not modern electric equipment  Shocked
But it stopped at the edge of their clothes. When wearing short sleeved shirt, shorts and flip flops nothing to see. So it is possible. I never saw anyonethere with a bluebird tattooed on their neck or thumbs.  Cheesy

That seems to be more popular these days from what I have read. It looks sinister - then again, that's probably the reason for it  Shocked

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

I'm very bad at letting people near my eyes like when I have something in one and someone offers to remove it.
So the idea of someone tattooing my eye would be an extreme nightmare.

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

"Is this what our NHS money should be spent on...... "

Short and sweet answer to this most clickbait of subjects, absolutely not - and I have a tattoo. 

It's the national health service, not the national want service at the taxpayers expense although I'm sure there must be a charity around that would fund such stupidity. Crazy2

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

I think most would agree with that, it's when you get into grey areas such as hip replacements, one health authority at least insists people who are obese should lose weight before hip/knee replacements are done

Re: Tattoo Removal on NHS

Or the amount the NHS pays for basic drugs such as aspirin, paracetamol etc.....They pay double the price these things can be purchased for in the large supermarkets and some smaller stores, I have even seen aspirin for sale in a pound shop !
