Next, get the backstory about one of the tattoos RealSelf doctors say they remove most often: the so-called “tramp stamp.” In this short video, RealSelf explores the iconic tattoo, what gave it such a “bad” reputation, and why nobody’s opinion matters but your own.

    Wow….that was so informative thanks. And ouch! I have one on my neck that I love and wont remove but the first one I got was a design around my belly button…HATE IT!
