Tattoos have become increasingly popular in recent years, with A-list celebrities and professionals from nearly all fields sporting artwork. However, this increase in popularity has come at a cost. Many people in Baton Rouge and elsewhere regret their tattoos and wish they had never gotten them. There are plenty of reasons to consider tattoo removal, some of which you may not have previously considered.
Poor Artwork Placement
Many people make the mistake of taking up huge chunks of skin with tiny tattoos, only to greatly regret the decision later. For example, a small piece on the shoulder blade can destroy your hopes of having a back piece and a tattoo on the bicep may not fit in well with a sleeve. Poor placement can also affect your career options, as some industries do not approve of tattoos on the arms below the elbow or on the neck. If your artwork is in a bad place, having it removed with laser tattoo removal treatments in Baton Rouge may be your best option.
Terrible Artwork Execution
Tattooing is not like drawing on paper. The depth of the ink placement is important, as a tattoo done too shallow will fade badly and one done too deep can “blow out” and appear smudged or blurry. No matter how beautiful the source artwork was, poor execution can leave you with an unattractive, permanent blob on your skin. For those with such poorly done tattoos, laser tattoo removal is often the best option.
The Effects of Age and Time
Our skin can stretch and sag in ways we may not have considered when getting a tattoo. Women who get tattoos above their breasts or on their torsos may come to greatly regret this decision after weight changes or childbirth. Men can also experience stretching and sagging with age and weight changes. If your tattoo has stretched or is now on loose, saggy skin, even having the skin surgically tightened may not restore the artwork. Laser tattoo removal, however, could erase it entirely.
