The pandemic has made people re-evaluate so many things in their lives.  One of those things?  Whether they still want to have "Zeppelin Rules!" tattooed on their lower back.

 

According to Removery, which is a laser tattoo removal business in 31 cities, they've seen a 30% jump in tattoo removal requests compared to this time last year.

 

They say, "We're hearing from so many people who are reflecting on their lives during the quarantine . .  Wanting to remove tattoos after making big changes in career or relationships, or just generally having more time to consider the image they want to project to the world."
