(news.sawf.org) - Charlie Sheen has promised fiancee Brooke Mueller he will remove his tattoos as a token of his love.
The Hot Shots star, who has 13 etchings on his body, agreed to undergo laser surgery because Brooke hates them.
Charlie, once famous for wild partying and romancing a series of actresses, doesn't even remember getting some of his tattoos, including a dragon with glasses and a stingray on his left ankle.
The 42-year-old actor has one inked design of a wooden sign nailed to his chest above his heart that reads, "Back in 15 minutes".
Charlie said: "That one was meant to be an ashtray but went horribly wrong. I can't even remember the year I got it."
Tattoo removal can be painful and expensive. Lasers are used to react with the ink in the tattoo and break it down. It is not always possible to completely remove body art and the technique often has to be repeated several times, which can result in permanent scarring.
Charlie has already had one tattoo lasered off - the name "Denise" inscribed on his left wrist for ex-wife Denise Richards.
The pair are currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle for their daughters, Sam, three, and two-year-old Lola.
