With one out of every four tattooed Americans regretting their tattoos, many people wonder if tattoo removal is possible for them. Thankfully laser tattoo removal technology has advanced over the years, making tattoo removal a reality for anyone who desires it. Even the most stubborn tattoos can be removed safely and effectively. Because each tattoo is unique and each person is unique, removal techniques need to be suited to fit the individual. Some tattoos can be more difficult to remove than others. What are the hardest tattoos to remove? It depends on a number of factors.
Black, single color tattoos are the easiest to remove because the lasers can target black pigment easier. As a general rule, the greater the contrast between the skin and the ink color, the easier the tattoo is to remove. Other colors can be removed safely and effectively with the right laser. This is why we use the Astanza Trinity Laser System at Remove a Tattoo – laser tattoo removal clinic. It’s the ultimate laser system for removing full color tattoos and can be customized to the unique colors in each tattoo.
Whether or not you smoke can make a difference in how hard your tattoo is to remove. Smoking will cause the tattoo to fade more slowly because it affects circulation. If the blood flow is hindered, it is harder for your body to do it’s job and carry away the ink particles. This is another reason to consider quitting smoking!
Smaller tattoos are easier to remove than larger tattoos for one simple reason: there is less ink to remove. As a general rule, the larger your tattoo is and the more ink density it has, the more time it may take to remove it.
Age of Tattoo
Older tattoos are easier to remove than newer tattoos; so the newer your tattoo is, the more difficult it will be to remove. That being said, we can and do effectively remove new tattoos. It just may take a few more treatments than an older tattoo. One reason for this is because of sun damage over time that has faded the tattoo. The sun works in the same way as a laser – breaking down the tattoo ink over a period of time.
Professional or Amateur
Tattoos by professional artists tend to be more difficult to remove because they go deep enough in the skin to be permanent. Tattoo artists know what they are doing and they know how to apply the ink with the right equipment and the right method. Amateur tattoos may be done with homemade devices or someone who isn’t experienced, so they aren’t as deep in the skin and may fade with fewer treatments.
