Behind every tattoo, there’s a different story – good, bad, or downright strange. But the stories that come with tattoo removal are usually very similar. If you’ve found yourself having second thoughts about your ink, your story may be more predictable than you think.
Common reasons for seeking tattoo removal
“My tattoo is holding me back in the workplace.”
Though tattoos are much more commonplace and accepted these days than they were in the past, many workplaces still frown on employees with tattoos. This is especially true in more traditional and formal settings, such as offices or banks. Since it’s so hard to find work these days, you don’t want someone’s first impression of you to be spoiled by a hasty judgment about your tattoo. While it may seem crazy to think that hiring and promotion decisions could be affected by your body art, it can happen.
“I’ve outgrown my tattoo.”
Remember that butterfly tattoo you got when you were 19, thinking it symbolized so much about your life? It may seem immature to you now as a more professional and experienced person. You’ve outgrown many things in your life. Tattoos, unfortunately, are harder to shake than that black lipstick you wore during your Goth phase.
“I got my tattoo during a wild night I can’t really remember.”
Tattoos are easy and cheap to get–especially when your inhibitions are low and your pain tolerance high. Unfortunately, they’re much more difficult to remove than they are to get, but luckily, there are better options for treatment available today than there were a few decades ago.
“We’re not together anymore”
When you’re in love, it can be easy to think you’ll never feel the same way about anyone else–ever. Time passes though, and so do relationships. Regret is especially ugly when you have to read your ex’s name on your bicep every day.
