Let’s face it! Bad memories suck, but if it is engraved there on your body reminding your day and again, well, that’s just pure mental torture.

So let’s say you got a new fancy permanent tattoo of your girlfriend’s name and then she left you and now your current is pissed over every time she sees your ex’s name on you. Or maybe you outgrew your old tattoo and now it is just embarrassing. Or maybe you got yourself a new job and your tattoo is standing in the way between you and your career. Well, in such cases, your tattoo has to go, and for good.

Permanent tattoo removal is the go-to option if you are in such a condition. But the problem that arises here is that people don’t want to go to a professional to do that. They try stupid stuff like corrosive acids or burning the area etc. which ends up hurting themselves.

The best option available today is Laser Tattoo Removal. But people seem to have made up an air of myths around it. So today, let’s be myth busters clean up the foul odors of myths, and let the truth smell.

My Skin Type Isn’t Suitable 

Maybe this myth was true for the skin people earlier, but with advancements in technology, no matter what your skin type is, laser tattoo removal will work just fine.

Permanent tattoo is permanent 

The older the tattoo is, the easier it is to remove as the ink has faded over the years. So whether it’s your brand-new tattoo or a decades-old one, laser tattoo removal will work just fine.

It is excruciatingly painful 

Though it is true that the process is not painless, the discomfort can be reduced by using lidocaine cream or a local anesthetic if the tattoo is small and anesthetic cream if the tattoo is large. The pain is way less than the one while getting a tattoo.

The process just takes minutes 

While the process is faster than traditional methods, it generally takes multiple sessions for complete tattoo removal. The length and duration of sessions are decided by professionals depending on the size of your tattoo.

It may cause radiation and cancer 

Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive and completely safe procedure when performed by certified professionals. There is some mild discomfort and pain but the use of FDA-approved lasers eliminates virtually any possible danger.

Tattoo removal creams are better 

They do work but when it comes to complete removal, they fail. They help in fading out the ink but the amount of money spent on creams will sum up to a large bill.

It may scar my skin 

Laser tattoo removers only remove the top layers of your skin. With the use of FDA-approved lasers and strict quality control scarring is the last thing you should worry about.

Black ink is harder to remove 

Inks vary in terms of the composition used to prepare them. But improvements in laser technology have ensured that all ink is removed equally and it is a myth that black ink is difficult to remove. In fact, the opposite is true.

It’ll break the bank 

Laser tattoo removal is actually a very affordable method compared to others. Depending on the size and sessions required per tattoo, it’s generally the best option to not burn a hole in your pockets.
