Hate your new tattoo? Here’s how long you have to wait to remove it

Hate your new tattoo? Here’s how long you have to wait to remove it

How soon is too soon to remove a tattoo? For some people, the regret for getting inked sets in pretty quickly.  If it’s a bad tattoo you’re regretting, you’re not alone.

Although many people seek laser tattoo removal to get rid of tattoos that were the product of old relationships, trends, or youthful thoughts, sometimes, people hate their tattoos when they’re only days old.

Older tattoos are easier to remove because the body has already broken down some of the ink pigments and caused some fading, giving you a headstart on the laser tattoo removal process. But that doesn’t mean that new tattoos can’t also be removed.

It’s actually common to have instant tattoo regret, whether it’s because you didn’t like the appearance of the tattoo once it was applied or that the tattoo simply was a quick decision.

New Look Houston can begin treating tattoos with laser tattoo removal once the skin has completely healed from the tattoo application process. This is typically 6 to 8 weeks.

After that, the number of tattoo removal sessions depends on the size and colors of the tattoo. Luckily, the good news is that your tattoo can come off, even if you have to live with it for a few months.
