The 6th episode of this programme, shown 11th February, features a patient called Sarah, who had lived to regret having black eyebrows permanently tattooed in the hope of a quick-fix to avoid daily touch-ups. Her journey to restoring a more normal face included laser hair removal.

In this programme, Katie Piper meets people planning major body modifications as well as people who’ve already had them and regret it.

Apart from the pain of the original procedure, Sarah was so disappointed with the result that she hid her eyebrows beneath a long fringe on a daily basis. The eyebrows were done in an unnatural and very high solid shape and Sarah was embarrassed about the appearance. The tattoo ink was turning blue and the brows take more maintenance than ever.

Sarah had painful laser removal of the tattoos in a series of sessions to break down the permanent black ink in her eyebrows.
