New tattoos might be fun to get. You've discovered the perfect look and feel that perfectly captures your ideas and personality, and you're prepared to make it your daily friend. For most people, getting something permanent on their body speaks a level of commitment and devotion; in most cases, it turns out to be great for them. For others, though, there frequently comes a moment when they regret getting that particular tattoo
and may even desire to remove it for various reasons. Depending on your desired outcome, there are a few techniques to conceal, remodel, or remove the tattoo in this scenario. Each method has pros and cons.
Here are some things to consider while having a tattoo that you don't like fixed.
Hold off on healing.
The most crucial thing to remember is to wait for your new tattoo to heal before thinking about correcting it. Even if you don't like it right away, you should wait, adhere to the recommended tattoo aftercare regimen, and allow your skin to heal before making any alterations. As Edmonton's foremost tattoo experts, we frequently encounter clients who wish to cover up brand-new ink they recently acquired elsewhere. It is preferable to wait for at least four to six weeks for the tattoo to cure, contrary to what we generally encourage our clients to do. Additionally, as the ink settles into your skin over time, it is usually simpler to hide an old tattoo. You risk scabbing, skin infections, and other problems during the healing process if you don't adhere to the recommended tattoo aftercare regimen.
One solution for a terrible tattoo that can't be removed is to have a cover-up tattoo. But if you go this way, pick a convincing design to hide the clutter. For instance, the tattooist won't be able to cover up a tattoo in the traditional style with one in the watercolour style.
To better understand your possibilities, speak with an experienced tattoo artist.
Additionally, you should ensure that your cover-up tattoo is something you like, rather than a chance design that just so happens to look great over your present unflattering tattoo. Put it another way, give your new cover-up tattoo the same amount of attention you gave to getting rid of the old one.
Lettering and coloured tattoos are more straightforward than tattoos with a lot of black ink. But when it comes to tribal tattoos that primarily cover the flesh and have strong black lines, things get tricky. Another issue could be the tattoo's enormous size. The artist might suggest laser tattoo removal in these circumstances.
Process of Removing Tattoos
Tattoo removal using lasers is a time-consuming, expensive process that is not always effective. But it is a method of repairing a flawed tattoo.
If you shop around for prices, laser tattoo removal
, which removes tattoos by dissolving the ink so your body can remove it, can be affordable. The size, skin tone, and placement of the tattoo affect the removal process, which in turn involves how many treatments and visits are necessary to remove it altogether. It might not even be able to altogether remove a tattoo, depending on its depth, type of ink, and placement.
