When you ask people in Lafayette to write down the reasons why they got a tattoo and then ask them if they feel that those reasons are valid today, most people will say no. Fortunately for these people, laser tattoo removal exists.
There are very few people who meditated, pondered, and reasoned on whether or not to get a tattoo. The vast majority of people get tattoos as an emotional response to a situation, peer pressure, or an emotional event.
For this reason, a good portion of people who get tattoos later regret it and want them removed. The reasons why they want their tattoo removed are as varied as the reasons why they opted to get a tattoo in the first place.
One of the most popular reasons for wanting to get a tattoo removed doesn’t necessarily have to do with the reason why the person got the tattoo, but instead on the quality of the tattoo itself. They might have gotten a tattoo that was performed by an amateur tattoo artist. Or the tattoo artist might’ve misspelled the words in the tattoo. That’s frustrating and is a common reason to get a tattoo removed.
Another reason why people turn to laser tattoo removal at our office in Lafayette is because the tattoo itself has not held up over time. When you get a tattoo, your body sees the pigment as a foreign invader. So it immediately sends white blood cells to attack the tattoo. Depending on the ink and the metals that were used to create the tattoo, your body may or may not be able to break the tattoo down. If your white blood cells are successful at attacking the tattoo, it is going to fade quickly. So the bright and vibrant colors that you had might now look faded and blurry.
Another reason why people opt for tattoo removal is because they’ve changed. Ideas, ideals, or people they thought were cool when they were younger no longer have the same significance. Many people in their youth get tattoos identifying them with fringe groups. Now that they are older and now that they are more mature, they desperately regret identifying themselves with those groups in the past.
