Torz Reynolds, 26, from London recently found out that her boyfriend of two years had been cheating on her for six months. She thought he had broke up with her to move to Alaska, but it turns out he had been living with another woman. Reynolds decided to get her revenge by cutting off her own tattoo of his nickname, Chopper, and mailing it to him in a beautifully wrapped jar.
Daily Mail reports that Reynolds, who is a professional body piercer, took a scalpel and tweezers to her arm to remove the tattoo of his nickname. The tattoo read “Chopper’s B-tch” on her forearm. The tattoo was a surprise for him, and she loved when his friends would see the name on her arm and be amazed.
Apparently, it took her an hour and a half to slice the skin off and she then used a pair of tweezers to peel the skin off. She made a rectangular cut around the tattoo, using no anesthetic, only a bottle of Vasocaine numbing spray to stop the bleeding.
“I don’t like pain, but the skin coming off was actually quite relaxing. It was the after-pain that hurt the most. It felt like a nasty stinging sensation and putting clothes on was a difficult task,” she told the Daily Mail. “Removing the tattoo like that was definitely closure. I like to get over things quickly and I always delete someone completely out of my life.”
This sure deleted him off of her body.
Reynolds then took this sick act to an even worse level by placing the skin in a jar, wrapping it with a bow and sending it to her ex. She even tracked the package to make sure he received the jar.
“I packaged it up so it really did look like a present. I even used different handwriting so he’d have no idea that it was me,” she told Daily Mail. “I can’t imagine what his reaction was. I wish I could have been there to see it.”
Her friends and relatives believe she took this to an extreme level, but it's clear that Reynolds wanted to send a message.
“Posting the tattoo to Chopper sent a clear message. Now he knows never to mess with me again,” Reynolds said, and although Chopper never responded to receiving it, he definitely got the message.
This body piercer has never hesitated to alter her skin in the past. “At the end of the day, it’s only skin,” she said. “And it will grow back.”
