Ten years ago, Crystal and Raul decided to celebrate their love with matching shoulder tattoos. The tattoo they chose was simple but profound: two red hearts joined together by cupid’s arrow and a ribbon inscribed with their names in black. Today, the tattoo is the only tangible that remains of their relationship. Manhattan Beach Tattoo Removal client Crystal smiles nostalgically as she rolls up her sleeve. “I’ll never forget him. He was my first true love,” she says before bursting into laughter. “But it is time to just get rid of that tattoo.”
Crystal decided to have her shoulder tattoo removed 3 months ago at the urging of her family. “I’m tired of the snide remarks,” she said, touching the tattoo with her index and middle fingers. “But to be honest, I’ve been ready to have my tattoo removed. It’s almost impossible to move on with my life with ex-boyfriend’s name tattooed on my shoulder.”
With enough money saved to remove her relatively small tattoo, Crystal’s main concern was safety. She first researched the most popular tattoo removal options and then decided that laser tattoo removal was the safest, fastest and most practical option for her. One quick Internet search later, she found the website of her future provider, Manhattan Beach Tattoo Removal at Manhattan Beach Dermatology. The clinic uses only the highest quality lasers available and guarantees that every client will love the results. After reviewing the information posted on their website along with the before and after photos of former clients, Crystal was confident that she could trust Manhattan Beach Tattoo Removal to safely and quickly remove her tattoo.
After her third session with Manhattan Beach Tattoo Removal, Crystal seems pleased with the results. And since red and black inks are the easiest colors to remove, Crystal is confident that her treatment will be fast with minimal damage to her skin. But maybe the most important thing Crystal will receive from her treatment is closure. “I wouldn’t say I regret getting the tattoo. I am just ready to move on.”
When asked, “What’s next,” Crystal paused for a second and grinned. “If everything goes well, I have a lower back tattoo in need of attention,” she said. “Ah, the things we do in our youth!”Tags: black ink, lower back tattoo, Manhattan Beach tattoo removal, red ink, shoulder tattoo, tattoo removal
