Did you get one of those damn dragon tattoos that were all the rage a few years back?

Are you sure you deserve to have the tattoo removed?

Look, it's not going to a problem for you, for very long. Relax and get used to it.

You might want the mods to anonymize this question. Although, considering how some tattoo artists operate nowadays, that might not do anything.

It depends on how big the tattoo is - if it's small, you could probably go to any legit laser surgeon and be done with it in a few sessions. Anything big and ostentatious and, well, it depends how badly you need to hide it. At least a doctor's office would be bound by confidentiality so if you're hinting that you want to find out through the whisper stream, I think you wouldn't stay under cover long enough.

If I were you I'd flip the problem around and focus on giving other people tattoos. That way you won't be the only person in your circle with a tattoo that's hard to explain.

I'm just impressed you could get a tattoo on your stockholm. That can really sting.

DYI! Use sandpapers of decreasing grit, followed up by some 000 steel wool. Then rub in some mineral oil for sheen and you're good.

Burn mark. Get yourself a grand burnmark and you'll get skin transplant from your thigh. Very anonymously. I'd recommend sitting one one of those camp stoves, that's so popular in Sweden. Good luck!

If money is no object, I know a guy in Switzerland. You're going to want to be discreet, so if you have some way to blend in I'd suggest you bring it along.
