I read an article this morning about when consumers are less likely to buy a cheap product. Getting a tattoo was right there at the top. I guess people figure if an artist is cheap, they’re not very good. I see that all the time – clients come in with a drawing that looks like it was inked by a no-talent clown.
“It’s not what I wanted,” they say. “It didn’t turn out right.”
In my practice as a Registered Nurse, I’ve performed thousands of tattoo removal treatments and completely removed many, many tattoos – I do it every day with the revolutionary PicoSure laser. I also teach other nurses and doctors how to do it. There are millions of unwanted tattoos in the U.S. and millions more across the globe. So, I decided to write a Top 10 list of reasons why my clients/patients tell me they want their ink gone.
#10. “Got it on my 18th birthday – huge mistake.”
#9. “The picture’s okay but the font sucks.”
#8. “People look down on me because I’m inked up.”
#7. “Can’t wear a swimsuit or the clothes that I want.”
#6. “Supposed to be photorealism and it looks like a cartoon.”
#5. “I don’t want my new baby daughter to see it.”
#4. “My new job doesn’t allow tat’s.”
#3. “That’s my ex’s name.”
#2. “It’s not what I asked for.”
#1. “It looks like s**t.”
I’ve heard many other reasons besides those listed, and listened to numerous bizarre stories from my clients, some of which are heart wrenching. Whatever the reason, I don’t judge. Thanks to Cynosure, the makers of the PicoSure laser, no one has to live with unwanted ink.
