A tattooed bombshell said she’s on a mission to get rid of all her ink.
Though she’s not looking forward to the painful process, she said the time has come when she no longer has anything to do with either of them.
TikToker Abby Baffoe (@abbybaffoe) supports women to do what they want with their bodies and does the same with their own.
“I have all my tattoos removed because I literally hate them,” she began clip.
Although she said that this conversation often sparks people, she doesn’t understand why.
“I think it’s because people get defensive and think I shit on all tattoos and that I hate tattoos, which I most certainly don’t.”
Abby said they just didn’t fit her personality anymore.
“I got my first tattoo when I was 17. I sneaked into Indiana to get it illegally.
“Now I’m 27, so it’s been a decade and they just don’t resonate with me.”
She said her priorities shifted today.
“I literally got them before my frontal lobe was even developed.
“My style is so different and I always try to cover them up or reposition myself in photos so they don’t show.
“S*** is exhausting and I hate her.”
Additionally, she said her body has changed, causing the ink to look different over the years.
“To be honest, they all look like shit now.
“The thing on the side of my body that I contracted when I was 17 has grown a lot since then and it doesn’t look the same as it used to. You can’t even read it anymore.”
Although she appreciates and admires tattoos on others, she no longer wants to see them on her own body.
“Forget the thought of seeing those tattoos on my wedding day,” she said, looking horrified.
Preparing for her second tattoo removal appointment, she said it wasn’t an easy process.
“It’s the second of ten, and it cost me over $4,000 to remove three, even though I didn’t even pay $400 for all of them combined.
“So this is fun.”
Aside from the cost, it’s also the pain she doesn’t handle well.
“It hurts like hell.
“But of course I’m super excited.
“So it’s about doing whatever we want with our body, what makes us most comfortable and minding our business.”
Viewers agreed with her opinion and some thanked her for the inspiration.
“That’s why I won’t get one. All I know is that I’ll change my mind,” one person wrote, with Abby urging them to “learn from.” [her].”
“Honestly, the frontal lobe thing is so true. I turned 24 and I’m just NOT the same person as I was when I was 18,” agreed another.
