Times have changed and you’d like to have your old, dated tattoo removed. Generally, the common method would be to use a Ruby Laser – but, there are cases where dermabrasion is still used, as well. Using topical anesthetic, a freezing agent and a dermabrasion brush or wheel; the skin is sloughed off gradually…and the ink with it. The procedure is accomplished in a series of sessions and a tattoo removal expert can determine the best method for your removing your particular tattoo.
Image is important. With the economy being so volatile and good jobs becoming more scarce – many people are considering tattoo removal to compete in the job market. Body art has become more accepted – but, there are still those who do not consider it to be professional. Though they will not likely tell you that is the reason you will not be receiving a callback; it might, very well, be tipping the scales in the favor of another applicant…who does not have a visible tattoo. Celebrating our ‘uniqueness’ is wonderful – but, when it starts effecting the financial and aspirational scope of the future…it might be time to think about tattoo removal options.
A tattoo is a ‘forever decision’. If you find that you want to ‘forever’ to be a shorter period of time, there are methods of removing the tattoo. It requires a series of laser treatments – where the ink will react with the heat and wavelength, dissolve and flush from the body. The time, amount of visits and cost will depend upon where the tattoo is located. Consult with a tattoo removal specialist in your area, if you find yourself having doubts about keeping a tattoo.
