How Tattoo Removal Can Make You Look and Feel Better

Tattoos are one of the oldest forms of body modification and have been practiced by many cultures around the world for millennia. From beautiful designs to lifelike portraits, skin art can be a powerful form of self-expression and beauty. However, not all tattoos are created equal. If you have artwork you no longer like, tattoo removal can help you to look and feel better in several ways.

Making Way for New, Better Art

Many people get a tattoo and are later dismayed when a reputable tattoo artist informs them that there is simply no way to cover it up because it’s too dark. Tattoo removal treatments fade the tattoo a step at a time, eventually blanching it out until it is light enough to be covered over successfully. If you want a cover-up tattoo and are worried the old work will ‘bleed through’ into the new art, removal is a great way to ensure this doesn’t happen. Even if the ink of your old work has ‘blown out’ and looks absolutely terrible, removal sessions can fade it enough to be covered. A reputable artist can work with you to ensure the fade is sufficient.

Remove Painful or Uncomfortable Memories

Tattoos can have deeply personal meaning. If you have a tattoo that reminds you of an ex-lover or a cringe-worthy band tattoo, erasing it entirely from your body can help you erase it from your memory, too. As some gangs also use tattooing to identify members and some human trafficking victims are tattooed against their will as ‘property,’ removal also provides the chance to leave a bad past in the past forever.

Reclaim Your Skin Entirely

Sometimes, it’s not the art that is bad, but the placement. Tattoos on the neck, face, and hands are still unwelcome in some conservative workplaces and social circles. If you have a tattoo in a bad place, tattoo removal can be done again and again until only clear, unblemished skin remains.
