Millions of individuals have tattoos. Unfortunately, over time, many of those people come to regret their decision to get a tattoo and want to have the tattoo removed. In fact, our Enlighten laser tattoo removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed. There are many reasons that people ultimately come to regret their tattoos and want to have them removed. Here are some of those most common reasons.


A Relationship Breakup

Relationship breakups are one of the most common reasons that people seek tattoo removal. It has been popular over the year for people to have the name of a spouse or significant other tattooed somewhere on their bodies. Tattoos on the ring finger that symbolize a relationship are also quire common. Unfortunately, many relationships do not last forever, while the tattoos to symbolize those relationships are designed to be permanent.

A Bad Decision When Young

Young adults are the most common group of individuals to get tattoos. Many of those tattoos were obtained while in school, perhaps on vacation such as spring break, or during other times when a lot of thought may not have gone into the decision to get the tattoo. As time goes on many of these individuals reach a different point in their lives and they no longer want the tattoo. They begin to look for options, like Enlighten laser tattoo removal to have them removed.

 A Career Aspiration Does Now Allow Visible Tattoos

Certain jobs, such as law enforcement and military service, have restrictions regarding visible tattoos. There are many individuals who got tattoos earlier in life but later learned that the tattoo(s) are restricting them from pursuing certain careers. These individuals often seek our Enlighten laser tattoo removal.

A Different Time in One’s Life

We all go through phases. At one point, a tattoo might seem like a very good idea. Some of the artwork is beautiful and many individuals want to display this work for a variety of reasons unique to that person. However, for many people circumstances change through life. These changes may be a variety of things ranging from parenthood, to careers, to a completely different view of one’s self. These situations are very unique to each individual, but often cause that person to desire removal of a tattoo obtained at a different time in his or her life.

Sometimes People Want to Change a Tattoo – Partial Tattoo Removal

There are some people who do not want to completely remove a tattoo. They only want to remove a part of the tattoo, or have certain aspects of it changed. Laser is very useful for removing a portion of a tattoo. A new tattoo can be placed over the treated area after treatment is complete.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center / Aesthetic Laser Center, we use the Enlighten 3 picosecond laser for tattoo removal. All procedures are performed by Dr. Jeffrey Gosin, a double Board Certified Surgeon with extensive experience with laser procedures.  If you have a tattoo that you now regret, treatment is available for you.
