It's behind a paywall so no link, but I was reading the Sunday Boston Globe and there's a story from the "On the Job" feature about a tattoo removal nurse. She explains that tattoo removal is a growing business as adults seek to reverse their impulsive Spring Break decisions. Here's the funny part of the story: this nurse explained that a local anesthesia can be applied before the (painful) process. Most of the men who refuse the Lidocaine change their mind while most of the women do not. The nurse quips: that's "why the women have the kids." Heh.
