Drew Barrymore having tattoos removed

Drew Barrymore is reportedly having her tattoos removed.

The 38-year-old actress - who has four-month-old daughter Olive with husband Will Kopelman - is said to be undergoing painful laser surgery to erase the six inkings on her body.

She wants to convert to her spouse's Jewish faith but would be unable to be buried in a traditional cemetery if she still had the artwork when she died.

A source told America's star magazine: "Drew also wants to be a Santa Barbara mom, and tattoos clash with that wardrobe.

"She's growing up and turning conservative."

Barrymore isn't the only new mother having her tattoos removed.

Megan Fox - who has five-month-old son Noah with husband Brian Austin Green - has been having her inking of Marilyn Monroe removed from her right forearm and is astonished at how painful the procedure is.

She said recently: "It hurts really bad. It's really painful. Getting them is not that bad, obviously, because I have so many.

"I can't explain the exact science to you, but when the laser hits the ink on your skin it kind of explodes and looks like little kernels of popcorn popping up.

"It's traumatic and it's incredibly painful. They can't numb it enough to make the pain go away."
