Kelly Osbourne: Why I'm Removing Most of My 15 Tattoos

USMagazine, Wednesday, October 6, 2010, 2:21pm (PDT)

Kelly Osbourne isn't done reinventing herself!

The slimmed-down star, who recently told Us Weekly about how she's managed to keep off almost 50 pounds after a year, plans to get most of her 15 tattoos removed.

As reported in The Daily Mail, Osbourne, 25, announced her decision to undergo laser tattoo removal in her weekly column for British magazine Closer.

She had her revelation recently while shooting the flick "Should've Been Romeo," when makeup artists covered up the ink. "I can't say I missed them!" she wrote.

"I met with my dermatologist, and I'll start the laser treatment as soon as I have time," the "Dancing With the Stars" alumna said.

The erasure process won't be short and painless, either. "It will take several months, and while I'm not looking forward to the pain, I've heard it hurts less than getting the tattoo," Osbourne wrote. "I hope so!"

She doesn't hate all of her tattoos, Osbourne explained. "Some still have a special meaning, like the matching ones my brother Jack and I have of each other's names, but now I feel like some were a mistake."

Last year, Osbourne told British talk show "This Morning" that getting inked was "my way of self-harming, because I really knew it would upset my mum and dad," she admitted of parents Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne.

"I was miserable, and I just went and got all these tattoos and I don't know why. One of them is a keyboard, and I don't even know how to play a piano!"

She added, "As you get older, you realize that you don't want to be defined by your tattoos, because that's not the type of person that I am."
