Thank you very much...

I went to a doctor in my country and he gave me some medicines and it didn't work... another doctor in UAE told me just to forget about it and that it will soon disappear( that was 5 years ago)

I'm now considering tattooing.. what do you think?

By the way... it is possible for me to travel to india
