Ways To Get Rid Of A Permanent Tattoo:- It is very tempting in your late teens or early twenties to get a tattoo, especially if there is peer pressure from your friends. So many female celebrities appear in public now sporting one or more tattoos and many girls want to be like them. Sometimes, you do not really make a good choice when it comes to getting yourself inked. A botched relationship, bad tattoo art and wrong choices can leave you up in arms with your tattoo.
But what happens when they reach maturity and regret their rash actions when they were younger. Permanent tattoos are done with a needle and long-lasting inks designed not to fade and to withstand all weathers.
Removing tattoos can be a costly process as it may involve several visits to completely take out them. It can also be a very painful process and they do not always entirely disappear. Tattoos done in black ink or darker colors like deep purple and navy blue tend to become invisible more quickly, but bright colors and large tattoos often leave a trace of the original design. There is also the risk of scarring and removing tattoos does change the pigment of the skin which is not permanent but can last for up to a year.
If you have a special occasion and want to hide your tattoo you can temporarily cover it up with liquid latex or heavy make-up.
If you really need to get it done, read on to know more on how to remove a tattoo by various techniques and DIY methods.
Various Techniques To Remove A Permanent Tattoo
A) Laser Technique
The laser technique is the most common and popular way to remove a permanent tattoo. It is also painful and heavy on your pockets, though it is one of the most effective.
Over a period of a couple of sittings (depending on the size of your tattoo, the sittings may be more or less), the laser is pinpointed on your tattoo and it breaks down the pigments in your tattoo. These tiny bits of the pigments are disposed by the body.
B) Make-Up Cover Up
You can also use makeup to cover up a botched tattoo, if you cannot make up your mind for an expensive laser removal method. You can camouflage it with a concealer, till you make up your mind for a laser removal. If you have been thinking on how to remove permanent tattoo, this is one way you can adopt. These are made especially for tattoo cover ups, as these are not like normal concealers.
The one formulated by the famous tattoo artist Kat Von D, is the best one available in the market. It is called ‘Lock-it Tattoo concealer’ and is available in most Sephora stores. This is an easy way to remove tattoo at home.
C) Wrecking Balm
This one sounds too good to be true! It is a balm which you can use to fade away that regretful tattoo. It is a revolutionary product for those looking for a tattoo fix. Unfortunately, this takes a humongous long time. It works, but it is slow and expensive. It will not be painful to your body, but certainly painful to your pocket!
D) Plastic Surgery
