Who Has the Worst Tattoo in the Tri-Counties?

There are only two days left to enter Evolutions Medical & Day Spa’s “Worst Tattoo in the Tri-Counties” contest, the winner of which will receive free laser removal of their awful ink. Candidates should email a color picture and the story behind their bad tattoo to, or they can bring their picture and story to the spa at 350 Chapala Street in Santa Barbara. The entry deadline is Thursday, June 19, at 11:59 p.m.

“Having a bad tattoo doesn’t have to be permanent,” managing partner Brian Perkins said in a prepared statement. “This contest is our way of giving someone in the Tri-Counties the opportunity to remove a bad tattoo at no cost. There are a lot of technologies that claim to remove tattoos, but our powerful Q-switched laser is one of the best options on the market that can breakdown the ink while protecting surrounding tissue.”

The spa’s management team will select three finalists whose pictures and stories will be posted on the Evolutions Facebook page by June 23. Public voting will close on June 30 and a winner will be announced July 1. Fore more information and additional contest rules, visit
