Entry: ablated (adj.)
In context: "Current female live-in Staff Johnette Foltz has undergone two of the six painful procedures required to have the snarling orange-and-blue tiger removed from her left forearm and so now has a snarling tiger minus a head and one front leg, with the ablated parts looking like someone determined has been at her forearm with steel wool."
Definition: From ablate (v.): 1. trans. To take away, remove. Also intr. Now rare., and/or 2. trans. Surg. To cut away, remove, or destroy (tissue); to perform ablation.
Other: I was curious as to the cost of tattoo ablation, so did a bit of poking around. What I came across, instead, were several at-home removal products. Which, all in all, sounds like substituting one poor decision for another.
