Kelly Osbourne has undergone a great transformation since her time spent on DWTS. She's not done transforming herself, though, in fact she's planning to remove some of her tattoos soon.
The 25 year old DWTS alum had a revelation that she no longer needed the tattoos while shooting the movie Should've Been Romeo. Due to her role, the make up artists covered up her tattoos. It was then that she noticed she never even missed them. "I can't say I missed them!" she wrote.
Kelly announced the decision to undergo laser tattoo removal in her weekly column for British magazine Closer. Some of the star's tattoos will be spared from the laser removal, as they still have meaning to her. Among those tattoos is the matching one that she has with brother Jack. "Some still have a special meaning, like the matching ones my brother Jack and I have of each other's names, but now I feel like some were a mistake."
She's already met with her dermatologist and plans to start the removal treatment as soon as possible. She's aware of the time-consuming effort's pain, but is ready to take on the removal process. "It will take several months, and while I'm not looking forward to the pain, I've heard it hurts less than getting the tattoo. I hope so!"
Kelly also opened up as to why she got the tattoos in the first place. Some seem so out of place on her - like one of a keyboard, when Kelly isn't able to play the piano. She says that getting the tattoos was "my way of self harming, because I really knew it would upset my mum and dad."
In the end, Kelly has grow up in more ways than one, and she no longer feels the need to be defined by tattoos that symbolized her need to harm herself. It might seem odd that Kelly seems so well adjusted after all of the antics and dysfunction that we all witnessed on their former reality tv show, but she is. Kudos to you, Kelly for growing up and seeing the error of your younger years and striving to move past them.
In a world where tattoos are considered the cool thing to do when bored and out on the town it's no wonder there's many others in her position. Those that are looking to get rid of tattoos have little options available to them including makeup to cover them, laser removal and cover up tattoos. Perhaps Kelly will serve as a role model to he younger kids considering getting a tattoo on an impulse. Ink is forever, think before you decide to get inked!
Do you like tattoos? Do you have any that you regret, like Kelly does?
