There are many reasons you may not want a tattoo. You may be tired of a tattoo you once thought was a great idea? Or perhaps you’re looking to make space for a new design? Circumstances may have changed, perhaps fashions or beliefs. Even your body shape can impact how you feel about a tattoo, if you have gained or lost weight, a tattoo may have changed shape.

Over time the ink that was implanted within the skin will change colour and crisp lines will blur.

Fortunately, modern technology offers a variety of tattoo removal methods to help you bid farewell to unwanted ink. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the most popular tattoo removal techniques, their pros and cons, and what you can expect from each method.
