People have been inking designs on their skin for thousands of years, and the practise has become even more widespread over the last few years. Tattoos have become fashion accessories, made more popular by the increasing numbers of celebrities choosing to have large, prominent and numerous designs.
As tattoos become more common, the decision to have a tattoo is perhaps taken more lightly than it should. Many people are now faced with regret for a tattoo that no longer represents who they are, or for a rash decision that was not properly thought through.
While tattoos have become more accepted socially, they can still cause problems in other areas. There is still evidence that prominent tattoos that are not easily concealed by clothing can create an unfavourable impression when looking for work.
What was a spur-of-the-moment decision can create barriers both socially and professionally? In this case, tattoo removal is the best option to remove this barrier. While there are some creams on the market that claim to remove tattoos, results can be patchy, meaning that laser tattoo removal is often the most effective course of treatment.
