Man Removes Tattoo Using Cheese Grater


In 2017, a 19-year-old man from Argentina, who preferred to remain anonymous, decided to get a tattoo. However, after a week, he became interested in joining the airport police. He believed that he wouldn't be able to join because of his tattoo, though the police website didn’t specify that applicants couldn’t have any tattoos.

He turned to what could be considered the most dangerous place to get advice – the internet. At first, he attempted to scrub it off using a pumice stone but he didn’t succeed. According to Oddity Central, an online site that features bizarre events, unique travel destinations, weird inventions, freaky characters, odd art, and many more, he then turned to a cheese grater which, unsurprisingly, hurt and made him bleed a lot. The man ended up having to go to the hospital.

“Firstly I tried with a pumice stone, but it did not work. Then I continued with the grater. It hurt and bled a lot. I had to bandage it a lot and apply disinfectant. A week later I went to the hospital and I had a tetanus vaccination,” he said in an interview.

Recently, a video and pictures of his arm, before and after removing the tattoo, went rival. It was posted by one of his friends online. Unilad, a British Internet media company and website owned by LADbible Group that provides social news and entertainment, reported that his family wasn’t happy with his decision. But, by that point, it was too late for them to do anything about it.

The man, now 21, admitted that felt better about his actions after realizing cheese-grating his arm had actually somewhat removed the tattoo. “In that moment, I regretted it, of course I did. But when I saw it had gone a lot, I did not worry more. But I would not recommend it to anybody,” he said.
