    "This is a tattoo that I have had for about six years. In December I noticed some changes in it and decided to have it looked at. Biopsy came back as a type of skin cancer. The red pigment in the tattoo called cinnabar attacked my immune system so I have to have it removed either in a series of three surgeries or one time removal with a skin graft. My point for this is make sure if you get a tattoo that you think of all of the things that can go wrong and how your body could be potentially disfigured from it."

    My initial reaction is "oh, yikes!"

    But I'm pretty sure this will just give rise to 3-D tats.
