Having a particular tattoo may be regrettable later in life but this weekend in Phoenix that marking can become nothing but a memory.

The Delete Tattoo Removal and Laser Salon is having its second annual Deleteathon Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The first session is free.

Customers can have appetizers and cocktails while they get a facial, B-12 shot or tattoo removal treatment.

The American Society of Dermatological Surgery said over 50 percent of people with a tattoo eventually get them removed.

Dr. Jen Mundt will be removing the tattoos. The machine that helps her do the job is the Candela Alex Elite Laser.

"I use this for all of my tattoo removals," she said. "It basically just hits the patient's ink, and blows it into little pieces so their body can absorb it."

Mundt said her job keeps her busy.

One customer sticks out in her mind. "I did have a wife who had a husband who had a different woman's name on his left ring finger," Mundt said.

"She was actually OK with it, but he felt bad. He was just like ‘That's it -- it's going.' "

Tattoo removals usually take several treatments. Mundt said it can cost anywhere from $75 to $200 per treatment.

Appointments are recommended for Saturday.
