But remember: it easier to change your mind than your tattoo.
According to Dr. Roy Geronemus, most people make the decision to make the tattoo is driven by ideas without thinking through long-term. Therefore, not surprisingly many of them try to remove them. According to The Skin Surgery United States, during the years 2001 until 2003 with the disposal procedures with laser tattoo rose 27 percent.
Remove the tattoo is "very difficult, in some cases require more time and cost, depending on the type of tattoo," warned Geronemus, he is the Chairman of the Laser Medicine and Surgery and director of the Center for American Laser & Skin Surgery New York City in New York. Geronemus is also a member of The American Skin Surgery.
