We all have those moments where we regret doing something and we have no way of undoing the things we have done. Less than a few years ago, one of those moments was regretting getting a tattoo. Nowadays, thanks to laser tattoo removal procedures, our lives have been made much easier.
The Daily Mail conducted a survey where they found that four out of ten people regret getting tattoos and one in six hate them so much that they want them surgically removed. There are a number of reasons for this. It could be due to reckless behavior on one drunken night, or an amateur tattoo artist. Many young people tattoo the name of their lovers but end up breaking up with them after some time. It can get a little awkward when they fall in love again with someone else.
Many people consider covering up their ‘tattoos gone bad’. It requires them to use darker and thicker ink on the previous tattoo in order to hide it. However, it just makes matters worse.
Imagine designing a logo or a drawing a picture on a piece of paper with a pencil. It will take a few seconds before you change your mind. Instead of using a new piece of paper, if you draw your new design on top of the old one with thicker lines in order to cover it up, you will most likely be even more dissatisfied with it. It will be more difficult to erase the new design because of thicker lines and more ink. Instead, if you use an eraser to rub off and fade the previous design, it will get much easier to cover it up.
Same is the case with removing an existing tattoo with the laser removal procedure before a cover piece. Covering up the existing tattoo without fading it will only make it more difficult to remove due to more ink and thicker lines. Many renowned tattoo artists recommend that you get laser tattoo removal prior to getting a tattoo cover-up. Reputable and experienced tattoo artists understand that laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective procedure that will provide them with a smooth canvas that they can work with.
