Can You Really Remove That Tattoo?

It's not as easy as you think

They're all the rage now. From professional basketball players to college students, tattoos -- or body art to the hip -- are everywhere.

But sometimes what seemed cool at the time becomes an eyesore. In fact, it's been reported that up to half of all tattoos cause regret. That's where lasers can help, according to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

The treatment isn't always perfect, because sometimes the body art lingers even after it's been zapped by the laser.

So, make sure you really love Lisa before you head to the tattoo parlor.
