According to Yahoo, on Friday, Von D began the lengthy process of removing a childhood photo tattoo of James. Sadly, Von D got the tattoo on her left side only weeks before she and James would end their relationship. At the time of their breakup, Von D stated she had no regrets about inking her body with James’ portrait and would never erase or remove the tattoo, but things change and Von D has decided to have the tattoo removed.
Von D is in for months of laser sessions to have the tat removed. It could take anywhere from 5 to 15 sessions and in between sessions, it will take Von D eight weeks to heal in preparation for the next session.
Von D wrote on Instagram, “AND SO IT BEGINS! First round of tattoo removal well underway…#freshstart!”
Von D and James were engaged to be married but after allegations and later admissions of cheating, Von D broke off the relationship in July 2011. She later started dating electro-house artist DeadMau5.
Von D and DeadMau5 split in November but it proved to be nothing more than a short timeout because they are already back together again. Do you think the relationship will last this time?
What do you think of Von D having the tattoo of Jesse James removed? Is it worth it to go through the months of laser sessions and recovery to have the tattoo removed? Or should she have just left it on and covered it with another tattoo? Post a comment and tell us what you think.
