Is Tattoo Removal A Better Option Than A Cover Up?

Although we thought that getting that tattoo was a really good idea, we hugely regret it now. Maybe it’s an ex’s name or date you became a couple or a reflection of a very drunken night out abroad. Whatever it is, you now want it gone, and deciding whether to undergo a tattoo removal or endure a cover-up that may inflict some unpleasant pain is a decision that you need to take into serious consideration. Here, we are going to take a closer look at the two options and help you to decide which one you should go for so that you don’t have to look at the horrible mistake on your body ever again.

In order to help you make your decision, we recommend that you take the following points into consideration:

#1 Price

Even though you may not remember it due to it being a drunken idea on your night out, the chances are your tattoo wasn’t cheap and removing it or covering it up are not going to come at a cheap cost either. Although we all love saving money and choosing the cheapest option may seem like the best idea, choosing a cheap tattoo removal or a cheap cover-up is a really bad idea and should be avoided. If you go for the cheap option, the laser technology which will be used won’t be powerful enough due to it being out-dated. In order to ensure your tattoo removal is successful, it is worth spending that little bit extra, so that you have an experienced professional who will do a good job. Therefore you won’t require as many treatments, as each session will be worth more value.

#2 Time

You must take time into consideration, because laser tattoo removal can take a long period of time and can be a longer process than a cover-up. Laser tattoo removal can take up to a year to finish over a number of sessions, so if that is too long for you to wait for it to be complete, then we suggest that you have a cover-up instead.

#3 Location

The location of your tattoo on your body can have an impact on making your decision. If the location of your tattoo is in a discrete area of your body, but you still hate and regret it and want it gone, then a cover-up would be the option, as if you don’t like the cover-up, then it is still hidden, but it doesn’t remind you of the original hated tattoo that sits below it. However, if your tattoo is on an arm or a very visible location on your body, then laser tattoo removal is probably the best option for you, just in case you are not a fan of the cover-up in years to come.

#4 Career

Tattoos are not always seen in a professional light in the workplace, and in some cases, you could miss out on getting your ideal job if you have visible tattoos. Therefore, laser tattoo removal would be the best option.

 #5 Pigment Colour

Black and red ink are the easiest colours to be removed, however, some people can be allergic to the mercury in the red ink, making it more difficult to remove. Furthermore, some colours are actually really difficult to remove from your body, and some can turn a darker shade, therefore laser tattoo removal would not be a suitable option for a colourful tattoo. In this case, a cover-up would be a better choice.

Hopefully, this brief guide will give you some points to consider, which will help you to make your decision as to whether you are going to have your tattoo covered up or removed. Good luck!
