New Channel 4 Series

Please see below details e-mailed to

I am contacting you regarding an exciting new Channel 4 show I am working on at Remarkable Television (makers of Supersize v Superskinny and The Sex Education Show). This prime-time series will feature members of the public who wish to reverse beauty decisions they now regret or feel that they have outgrown, from cosmetic surgery and tattoos to permanent make-up or piercings, we will look at all cases.

We are hoping that you may be willing to assist us with spreading the word about the series? We are looking for men and women that have changed their lives, possibly ex-offenders or gang- members, who wish to remove the cosmetic links to their past whether it be tattoos, piercings, tooth modifications etc.

We are also looking for people from all walks of life with a tattoo that they got on the spur of the moment, due to peer pressure, perhaps it’s a tattoo of an ex- partner’s name, an idol, football club, an oriental tattoo that doesn’t perhaps mean what they thought – it can be anything at all! We’re keen to hear from people who want the tattoo removed and about the reasons behind having the tattoo back then, the motivation behind removing it now and observing the reversal procedure. Our aim is to demonstrate that past cosmetic decisions can be reversed to differing extents and the safest and most effective ways to research and having this procedures ‘undone’. We are working with leading practitioners who will be using the latest techniques to reverse these tattoos.

I would be very grateful if you could pass on this information and I have also attached a flyer. I would be delighted to hear from anybody interested in potentially taking part – they can contact me on 020 8222 4034 or email me at and leave their phone number or reach the team by calling/emailing the contact details on the flyer. There would be no obligation to take part by having an initial phone call.

If you have any further enquiries please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
