Many of us have that one tattoo we seriously regret, whether it was due to teenage independence, a drunken night or mistaken soul mate, or misguided wisdom the tattoo we now feel is truly awful. In my case, it is a lower back tribal which at some point I believed to have had some profound significance, and now I sincerely regret it. Being as it is on my lower back unless the subject of bad tattoos only those closest to me know of it.
In my case, I am considering expanding it to create something beautiful from something not so aesthetically pleasing. However, many times there is nothing that can be created with a distasteful old tattoo and the only thing left to do, if you no longer want that tattoo is to have it removed. One of the first questions that arise with the subject of tattoo removal is if it is a painful procedure.
There is a certain amount of pain and irritation associated with tattoo removal. This will be felt in the area being worked on. The sensation of pain and irritation will vary from person to person, as well as the size and the colors of the ink being removed.
Many people who have undergone tattoo removal have described the pain as being similar to having a rubber band snapped straight on your skin. Others have said it is more like having a lot of rapid pricks in succession. There have been others who associate it with scratching a bad sunburn.
Of course, the area of the body with the tattoo that you are looking to remove will play a significant factor with the amount of pain you feel. Areas that are more “fatty”, such as the buttocks, arms, thighs, etc. are not associated with as much pain as areas that have less “fat” coverage or are closer to bone such as the ankle, toes, finger, or neck.
It is possible to permanently remove some tattoos whereas others can only be permanently lightened. Clients with fair skin tones as well as tattoos on areas of the body with more “fat” such as the above-mentioned buttocks, arms, thighs, etc. have a higher success rate for permanent tattoo removal. Removing tattoos from individuals with darker skin tones, dark tans or when the tattoo is located in an area with less “fat” may not be one hundred percent effective, and can possibly leave behind small scars.
If you have a tattoo, you are not happy with and want to have it permanently removed look for a reputable skin clinic with qualified personnel who offer tattoo removal services. Go in for a check up with a professional and find out what your chances of permanently removing the tattoo are and how much pain you should feel due to the area your tattoo is located.
