User Profile
Hi, my problem is I have a boyfriend and he doesn't trust me at all even though i stay home everyday and answer his calls and would never cheat on him, he just doesn't mostly trust me on my past.. he made me get a tattoo of his name and our date with i love you on it and i did it because i love him for 5 years now.. but all he keeps doing is hurting me by breaking up with me and calling me names sometimes but half the time he loves me back but sometimes he just gets into that evil person and does what i just explained .. he leaves me in deep depression because i love someone who is making me feel un appreciated for all the things i do for him.. so i just want to take off this tattoo and get it removed and leave him .. but i cant do it with my mom because she doesnt noe.. and i dont have the money.. is there anyway i can get this removed with my problem of no money or parent involved.. the only thing stopping me from getting more hurt is this tattoo .. is there anyway you can help and help my depression come to a end.. or even give me advice on to help my problem with him?

It seems that you made a good decision to end a horrible relationship with a pathologically jealous man. Te tattoo could be a problem to start another relationship, so you can consider removing it. Tattoos can be removed only with a pecial dermatological procedure that requires a laser. I don’t know the price but I believe that your parents could have a full understanding of your situation and they may support you financially to remove that tattoo if you tell them.
