A dog may be for life, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology, a tattoo no longer has to be. And this is great news, for whilst many tattoos are illustrations of sheer beauty that could be considered works of art, others may not create quite the same picture.
You only have to watch the programme tattoo fixers to know that this can often be the case. There are the mistake tattoos that you get when drunk in Magaluf, it seemed a good thing at the time, but you certainly had a rethink in the cold light of day. Then there is the name of the person you once swore undying love to…only to split up with them soon after. Their name emblazoned on your chest is a permanent reminder. And then there are those homemade tattoos that you attempted during your teen years with a pot of Indian ink. It also needs to be said that for every tattoo artist who could rival Renoir, there are many strictly in the Picasso school of abstract or decidedly surrealist art.
If you have a dodgy tattoo, the good news is that you no longer need to suffer it forever. Reputable laser tattoo removal is now an option.
Having a tattoo removed once used to be a long drawn out process, but this is also something that is no longer the case. New services like Pico and Q-switch lasers are super effand often work with between 4-8 sessions. They can be used on pretty much all skin types are suitable even if your tattoos are deep in greens and blue inks with very heavy pigmentation.
So if you do have an unsightly tattoo that causes you upset, embarrassment or irritation, you no longer have to live with it. This Christmas you should treat yourself to something you really want and get it safely removed with laser tattoo surgery.
