Okay...this is a real trivial one. Has anyone had the radiation tatoos removed? I have one that shows when I wear my shirt collars open or have a slightly lower neckline on. I don't much care about the rest. Jamie

Jamie,

My dots are small and green. The one that is the most prominent is exactly where you are describing. It is permanent for a reason - you can't have any more radiation in that area. Somehow it doesn't bother me and if it did, I'd put a dab of make-up on it.

Does this help? :-)

Jean Thanks I did not know I could not have radiation in that area anymore. My dots are black like lead ... I've tried the make-up but it gets on my cloths ... I guess I should wear it as a badge of courage. Thanks for that info. Jamie

Hey, how about turning it into an interesting real tattoo??? I saw one on the internet that was very close to the hummm lower hairline. It was a little stick man with a lawnmower, he had hummm clipped the grass about one inch, it was a riot, the only tattoo I have ever thought I wanted. Hugs, Shirlann
