Dear skulldriver

Of course you love your tattoo and don't want to have it destroyed but you need to think if a tattoo is really worth your health.
However, there are surgery methods that might work out for you. One could be a Telescopic surgery, where the surgeon enters only with two "robot arms" and works over a screen. That would only make two small scars. They use it usually for appendicitis operations.

Talk to your surgeon and try to find a solution with him. Some surgeons just love the challenge icon_wink.gif

if there is no other solution, try to accept it as it saves your live and health.

Good luck and all the best
