A 42-year-old woman has shared her disastrous experience with cosmetic tattooing after she was left unimpressed with her permanent eyebrows.
Kym Lee, from Sydney, decided to have her eyebrows filled in with tattoos to make them look thicker about two years ago.
But her new ink on her face led to a laser removal surgery after she didn’t like the shape of her tattooed eyebrows.

But she decided to get the ink removed completely after she was left unimpressed with the shape (pictured after her successful laser removal treatment in Sydney)
‘She [beautician] was tattooing me sort of free hand,’ Ms Lee told News Corp.
She explained the consequences of getting tattoos are ‘you can’t just rub it out and fix it again’.
‘The more you fix it, the more it becomes a big blob. So I just thought I need to erase all [of] this and start again,’ she said.
But after enduring one round of painful laser surgery, she was left with blisters after her skin burned severely from the heat.
And so she went to another clinic where she managed to get the ink off her face successfully after eight sessions.

She underwent a ‘PicoWay Laser’ at Sydney’s Detail Tattoo Removal – a safe and effective procedure that uses sound waves to shatter ink particles so the immune system can get rid of it without any discomfort.
Now Ms Lee said she’s able to get the shape just right by spending up to 10 minutes every morning drawing on her eyebrows with a pen.
Despite no longer having natural eyebrows on her face, she insisted she’s just relieved her tattoos are no longer visible.
By telling her story, Ms Lee urged women to do their research thoroughly before considering cosmetic tattooing.
