If you have a tattoo that you can no longer resonate with, or it wasn’t quite what you had hoped for, you don’t have to live with it. One of the most advanced methods of removing a tattoo is laser tattoo removal, which means that tattoos are no longer permanent. There is a range of options available that might suit you. Here are some methods you can opt for to help with any unwanted tattoos:
Laser Tattoo Removal
Getting a tattoo is a big decision, but now there is the option to remove it permanently. With advancements in laser technology, tattoo removal is the safest and most effective way to get rid of a tattoo. The PicoSure and PicoWay tattoo removal machines are the gold standard lasers on the market that can target almost all ink colours and skin types. On average, depending on the depth and ink colours, 8-12 treatments are required, with an eight-week interval between treatments to help the tattoo heal and remove ink particles. The process may seem long, but if you don’t want to see the tattoo every day for the rest of your life, it could be worth it. Before starting a laser tattoo removal course, check the expertise and knowledge of your chosen clinic and ensure they carry out a consultation and patch test.
If you’re looking for a quick fix to hide your tattoo, it’s the perfect time to get creative with your outfits! You can finally wear that colourful scarf or gloves to help cover up areas on your neck, hands, or arms. Those designer shoes you’ve been waiting to wear can now be the better reason to draw attention to your feet rather than the tattoo underneath. If you have head tattoos or around your ears, you can find a funky hat to finish your outfit for the event; just don’t forget that you can’t take it off if you want the tattoo to go unnoticed. Before you leave, be sure to check all angles are covered in a mirror or with a friend.
Suppose you’re simply looking to cover up the tattoo for an occasion or event and aren’t ready to take a plunge with eradicating it yet. In that case, there are a vast amount of full coverage foundations tailored to cover up tattoos. A liquid foundation can be gradually built up with a blending sponge for larger tattoos to get the coverage you desire. As you build up the layer, this will deposit more pigment over the tattoo. Smaller tattoos can work well with concealers.
Leave it as it is
Sometimes, the best thing you can do is to leave it as it is, if the tattoo was something you’ve grown out of or you’re just not too keen on the tattoo any more. This is a particular good option for those who are on a tight budget. Besides, a cover-up might not be achievable as it could cause scarring and damage to the skin, leaving you with an unappealing tattoo. In most cases, tattoo artists may recommend a few laser tattoo removal treatments as previously mentioned, but it can be very expensive.
Until next time.
