Pharrell Plans Remove Tattoos With New Procedure

Posted By on July 2, 2008

    One half of the producing duo The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. front man, Pharrell Williams, wants to start over, even when it comes to his body. Williams revealed this week to Brittish Vogue that the tattoos he currently has no longer fit what his lifestyle is and he is going to try a revolutionary new tattoo removal procedure. The procedure involves applying replicated skin over your old tattoos. "It's basically like getting a skin graft, but you're not taking skin from your ass or your legs. These guys actually grow the skin for you," he explained. "First you have to give them a sample of your skin, which they then replicate. Once that's been done, they sew it on – and it's seamless." N.E.R.D. recently talked about tattoos in a new video which we posted yesterday [watch here].

    Currently the most common way to remove tattoos is with laser treatments, but ends up being a long process and really painful. This new procedure is expected to be faster and involve less pain, but it costs a lot. Pharrell didn't give any specific numbers but he did say it doesn't matter how much it costs, he's doing it adding "It's going to be pricey, but worth it," he says. "I got fire on my arms! I'm a grown man!"
