Who doesn’t want a do-over? Laser tattoo removal…








Written by guest blogger: Luke Stovak.  Who doesn’t want a do-over? I often see tattoos decoratively scripted with a loved one’s name or letters over the knuckles spelling “LOVE” or “HATE.”  Would I like that on my body when I’m 80? Will that beautiful sun around my navel look the same as I age? I don’t think so. Because of this, I believe that laser tattoo removal is fantastic. It helps those who want to start over.

If the hip tattoo names a previous loved one and a new lover is visually reminded of the past, how does that help their future?  If an ex-gang member would like to dissociate from the gang or apply for a job, shouldn’t they be able to shake the employer’s hand without seeing “HATE” in the handshake? Or without tear drops inked by their eye?  

Youthful dalliances in the tattoo parlor or vengeful thoughts put onto the skin could forever be displayed. There is a viable option for tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal has been available for 30 years and can be used to remove names, rings, designs, or even parts of designs. The process may take several sessions, depending on the color and depth of the ink. Consider laser tattoo removal instead of excision of skin as it is less invasive and may cause less scarring.  For more information, one great resource is www.newlookhouston.com
