How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tattoo

When are all taught that tattoos are forever so you should be darn sure that the tattoo design your are getting inked on your skin that you will be able to live with it for the rest of your life. With that being said the above statement isn’t necessarily true. Tattoos in a sense are forever but if you have the money and can endure the pain of getting a tattoo removed by a laser you can always go down the route. However, getting a tattoo removed by a laser doesn’t always mean your tattoo will be gone forever. You can develop some scarring where the tattoo was and more than likely you will be able to still faintly see the tattoo, not unless you get it covered up with another tattoo. But if that is the case make sure you don’t make the same mistake again and be 200% sure that the new tattoo design you are getting is something you can live with for the rest of your life.

The tattoo removal business is ironically booming right now. So  you should not have a hard time finding a facility to remove your unwanted tattoo. Now for the facts about laser tattoo removal. Insurance will not pay for these procedures and one session will not make your tattoo mistake go away. Often it takes up to 8 to 12 very painful sessions to complete the tattoo removal process. Now for the cost, it typically cost anywhere from $50 to $100 per square inch of course some places charge more. If you want numbing cream to help with the pain that is an extra $75 per session. Also if you tattoo is colored you will be charge more as well as colored tattoos are harder to get rid of.  Lastly, you have to wait 8 to 12 weeks between sessions. So the moral of this story is, don’t make the tattoo mistake in the first place. Think long and hard about your tattoo design and the location you want your tattoo and stay away from lover’s names. It’s best to keep the it’s forever in your mind.

    There are several ways of removing tattoos now besides laser, there are a few creams available, such as rejuvi, or you could have IPL, which I believe is a bit less painful than laser treatment. I’ve even heard of going over the tattoo again (with a needle) using a saline solution. Can’t really see that being hugely effective, but got to be worth a try in the first instance, as saline is pretty harmless.
