Pharrell Williams, the lead singer of N.E.R.D., is no longer enamored with his tattoos and the artist has started to have his body art removed.
The rapper recently underwent laser surgery to have the tattoos burned out if his skin.
Pharrell recently posted a picture of his bandaged arms after the surgery took place.
"Laser treatment b**ches! Extra crispy. See, no skin graft here, just pure laser pain,” Pharrell said. “This is our own version of Mythbusters! Laser is the new primer."
Initially, Williams stated that he was going to attempt to cultivate new skin cells and graft the new tissue over his tattoos.
In early 2008, he said,
“"It's going to be pricey, but f**k it, it's worth it. I got fire on my arms! I'm a grown man! There's an institute called the Wake Forest Institute in North Carolina for Regenerative Skin Treatment. It's basically like getting a skin graft, but you're not taking skin from your ass or your legs. These guys actually grow the skin for you.”
