Deepa Khatri receives her vouchers from Dr Kiran Patel

A competition winner at this year’s Manchester International Tattoo Show has generously donated her prize to a friend, to help her have an unwanted tattoo removed.

Angela Wilson from Bolton donated the £100 Laserase vouchers she won to her friend Deepa Khatri who was saving up to have a tattoo removed. Deepa, who is also from Bolton, said she was really happy with the vouchers.

“I am really pleased as it means I can finally get rid of the tattoo I had done as a teenager,” said Deepa. “It was very kind of Angela to let me use the vouchers and I am really grateful to her.”

Deepa had some music symbols tattooed on her wrist about eight years ago, when she was a student.

“Last year I finished university and I decided that, now I am in employment, I didn’t want the tattoo any more,” explains Deepa.

Deepa had a few tattoo removal sessions previously and was just saving up for some more, which is why the vouchers were so welcome.

Deepa has now used some of her vouchers and says she is delighted with the service she received. “Everyone at Laserase Bolton has been really nice.”

The competition that Laserase Bolton ran at the Tattoo Show was to guess how many removal treatments were needed to remove a tattoo which they had pictured. Angela correctly guessed that 10 treatments were needed.

As well as tattoo removal, Laserase Bolton offers a range of skin treatments including thread vein and unwanted hair removal, skin rejuvenation, acne and birth mark treatments. For more information call Laserase Bolton on 01204 570900 or visit their website www.laserase-bolton.co.uk.
