James Andrew Arthur a British singer and songwriter says he has decided to have his most visible tattoos removed because he wants to start an acting career.
The 28-year-old singer, who has countless inking’s all over his body, now wants to remove them from his face, his neck and hands, reported Femalefirst.
"I'm having the owl removed from my neck, the tear from my face and a crown removed from my hand.
I've already had nine sessions. They take a while and cost a lot of money but it will be worth it," he said.
The decision to remove his tattoos came as the "Say You Won't Let Go" hit maker is planning on making a career shift from singing to acting, and does not "want to be typecast" in roles that require his inked body parts.
"I really want to do acting and I don't want to be typecast because of my tattoos," he said.
