Help! How Can I Get Rid of My Tattoo?

     We all make mistakes, and most of the time the mistakes that we make are minor and go away. Sometimes, though, we make mistakes that aren't so minor and that don't go away quickly. Tattoos can be considered a mistake by some that get them when they are young, for various reasons. Some people might get a tattoo to show how much they love someone, while others get a tattoo because they think they're cool. Sometimes people really want to get a tattoo but they simply aren't happy with the results that they got from the tattoo artist. When you want to get rid of a tattoo, there is really only one option: tattoo removal. But the process is a long and sometimes painful one, so make sure you know what it's all about before you sign up for it.

Options For Tattoo-Free Skin

There are a few options available for people who are looking to get rid of a tattoo. One popular option is to have one tattoo covered over by another one. There are many talented tattoo artists who are well-trained and who can get rid of a bad tattoo by placing a brand new tattoo on top of it. Be warned, though, many times the tattoo artist needs to go very deep with the needles in order to cover up the old markings, and they need to use bright colors, so you may wind up with a much larger and brighter tattoo. And when trying to cover up a tattoo, tattoo artists don't have very many options, so you may have to settle for some creature on your arm that you really don't want to have.

Getting the tattoo surgically removed is a good idea if the pigment is too deep for laser treatment or if the tattoo is too small to respond well to laser treatment. In this type of treatment, the skin is removed and sewn together, which definitely leaves a mark. It's not a good idea for someone who has a large tattoo, which is why people look to laser treatment to get rid of their tattoo. Laser tattoo removal involves using wavelengths of light in order to absorb the ink. The technician who wields the laser goes over the entire tattoo piece by piece, blasting lasers at different wavelengths into the skin in order to break down the pigment. Once the pigment is broken down, the body will absorb it and the tattoo will be almost completely gone.

Laser tattoo removal involves no scarring, but it does take anywhere from six to twelve different treatments in order to fully remove the tattoo. The treatment can be a bit painful, especially if you're someone who doesn't deal with pain very well, and it is definitely not a process that people should decide to go through on a whim. Put some careful thought into it before your schedule your first appointment. If you have a tattoo that you don't want on your body anymore, look at the options available for removing that tattoo and you will find the one that works best for you.
