They say when you get a tattoo it should be of something you'll be able to love for the rest of your life. Unfortunately for some, the reality is that the tattoo they get doesn't quite meet their expectations or hold up very well over time. For those with tattoo remorse, there are options for getting rid of unwanted body art. This guidebook artfully presents these options, systematically discussing the ins and outs of the different removal methods—laser removal, impulse light therapy, dermabrasion, and even excision—as well as the risks and costs associated with each. A discussion on tattoo cover-up follows and pointers are given in what to look for in an artist. Written in a down-to-earth, engaging voice, this narrative will answer all the questions about the tattoo removal process. Includes color photographs, sidebars that dive deeper into the discussion, and helpful back matter resources.
