Holly Madison's Playboy Tattoo Getting Removed (Bikini PHOTO)

Holly Madison has been a vocal critic of ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner's engagement to Crystal Harris, and now she reveals she is trying to get rid of her Playboy tattoo.

Holly Madison appears in unretouched bikini pics in the new Life & Style, and she tells the magazine all about her tattoo removal.

Life & Style's press release follows; scroll down for photo:

Holly Madison may have gained a little weight since leaving the Playboy mansion, but she's happy with her figure - flaws and all! "I'm not perfect, but I love my curves," Holly tells Life & Style. However, one thing she's in the process of shedding - her Playboy tattoo! During her Life & Style cover shoot on Feb. 21, Holly reveals she's erased her signature rabbit-head tattoo.

"I started getting laser treatments in 2009 to remove it," Holly exclusively tells Life & Style. "It's a walking ad for Playboy - and I joke that they've stopped paying for the ad space! I still need six more treatments, but I don't know if I'll ever get around to them because it's so easily covered with makeup."
