Recently, Southeastern Dermatology learned about a Tennessee dad trying to win One Direction tickets for his two daughters from a radio station dressed up as the biggest One Direction fan. His outfit was complete with a permanent tattoo he got for the contest that says “I <3 1D”. Unfortunately, he was disqualified when they discovered he did not qualify due to being a nonresident of the state that ran the contest. While he seems happy about that decision at the moment, once the limelight calms down he may change his mind.
So how long does this devoted dad have to wait before he can have laser tattoo removal?
