This story you might say has become a real eye opener. A man in South Wales woke up to a horrific shock this past week. After an all night jolly with his chums, he woke up to some mysterious etchings across his face. Now we all know what some people do in a drunken stupor from climbing lampposts to yes getting inked.

It turned out that this Welshman had a permanent tattoo of a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses marked around his eyes. It even featured the unique Rayban logo which was plastered on the side of his temple. Unfortunately for the unnamed gentleman, he believed that his chums were only fooling around with a simple black marker.

The South Wales individual was literally starry eyed as he stared innocently into the mirror the day after the night before. However, when he attempted to wash the evidence off, you know what’s going to happen next.

Hailing from Swansea in South Wales, the masked avenger was on a normal stag do in Blackpool when the culprits struck. After a drunken dare, he was unfortunately inked right across his face. What a mug.

After returning from the stag do, he was seen in a pub with friends and was soon rib tickled  for the bizarre design. Yet after careful consideration, the man has now sought medical assistance in order to remove the Ray Ban tattoo.

According to several sources, the man decided to visit a beauty clinic in his hometown of Swansea. Although he has already had a number of different treatments, there still remains some turquoise type marking. These are located around the temple on his face but are expect to heal nicely leaving no marks in the long term.

When it comes to tattoo blunders, this surely takes the biscuit. A horror story and a half, he first underwent an initial procedure on a test area before committing. All in all, this particular chap booked half a dozen treatments to ensure it could not be seen.

But with hardly anything left on his noggin, it seems to have worked according to some reports;  “There is no scarring, and when friends who haven’t seen me for months come over, they always notice something is different. When they realise the tattoo is gone, they are shocked about how well the treatment has worked.”


The masked avenger who is in his fifties has now spent at least two years having the distinct markings lasered off. But it does seem that the number of removal of tattoos in the UK is most definitely on the rise.

This must be carried out with great care though after another tattoo tale. This happened to  a woman who for some reason used acid to remove a design on her skin. Do it yourself tattoo kits may be a cost effective idea but it has left her with horrendous burns. As a result, she received major television coverage including on the BBC. Well, tats your lot for now!
