Kelly Osbourne Eliminates Ink

We’re losing one folks! Another member of the tattooed community has decided to forsake their ink and lead a life of plain skin; we can’t hate her for the decision, only wish her the best. The soon to be former tattooed person we’re talking about today is Kelly Osbourne. The daughter of Ozzy and Sharon (who most of us still only refer to as “SHARON!!” in honor of Ozzy’s epic annunciation of her name during their time as reality stars) has found success in recent years as a member of the “Fashion Police” and as an overall trend setter, becoming more famous to younger generations than even her rock legend father. In fact, for those of you who are too young to understand, Ozzy Osbourne was the lead singer of Black Sabbath, one of the greatest…aw screw it, he was the original singer of that song from the commercial where the little kids sing acapella in the jeep. Whatever, Kelly is really famous now, going from somewhat troubled, out-casted, and overweight teen to cultural icon, and as she completes her transition to the next phase of her life (one that will soon include marriage), she’s decided that she’s over her ink and has begun to process of getting most of her fifteen tattoos removed. She began the lengthy endeavor in early November of 2013 by starting laser treatments for the keyboard tattoo on her right forearm. She says that she got it while depressed and that it doesn’t mean the same thing to her anymore, so we assume that’s why it’s the first one on the block. We’ve heard varying accounts of the pain associated with laser tattoo removal, with some of our toughest friends saying it’s a nightmare and some of our softest buddies saying it was a walk in the park. We have to imagine that the pain has to do with the inks placement, the coloring, and one’s skin type. If you’re the type who sunburns easily, having a laser literally melt your flesh probably won’t feel too great. We’ve yet to figure out if Osbourne is now against ink in general, or if she just doesn’t think that it’s for her. Her Tweet about the removal was to the effect of “I did the crime, now I’m doing the time.”, which seems anti-ink to us, but she doesn’t seem like the type to just go against something like that, so maybe it’s just a poor choice of words. We guess time will tell, and if we see her bad mouthing body art on “Fashion Police”, we’ll know where she stands. Regardless, we wish Kelly the best of luck with her procedures!
