Many people who visit one of our Blink Tattoo Removal affiliates have a similar story to tell. They felt strongly about getting a tattoo earlier in life. Often their families were opposed, so the finished tattoo was a perfect personal rebellion. For a time, the tattoo was a symbol of freedom and self-determination. Then some years go by and the image tattooed changes from a personal choice to a personal burden.
This was the case for our Brooklyn, NY tattoo removal affiliate’s patient. During her complimentary, no obligation consultation, the patient explained how a teenaged fancy led her to have a multicolored design of yellow, purple, green, beige and black flowers and a fairy tattooed on her upper back. Over the years the tattoo of the fairy did not age as well as the patient. What had been a fun impulse had become a serious embarrassment. The faded fairy tattoo prevented the Brooklyn, NY tattoo removal affiliate’s patient from enjoying an active life as she could not swim, work out or wear even slightly revealing clothing without feeling very foolish.
The patient was concerned that the different colored ink used in the image would make the tattoo impossible to remove. Our Brooklyn, NY tattoo removal staff assured their patient that the Q-switched lasers used at Blink Tattoo affiliates are extremely effective in removing a variety of different colored inks. The multiple wavelengths of a Q-switched laser are each intended to remove a different range of the color spectrum. Although the yellow, purple, green, beige and black tattoo inks used may break down at different rates, over the course of the recommended treatments all of the colors would eventually become invisible. The patient was pleased to hear that being a active non-smoker would assist her immune system to clear the pigments the lasers broke down.
Several treatments later, our affiliate’s patient is thrilled to see her fairy and flowers fading into the past. Her flirtation with fairies almost finished, the patient is looking forward to summer and tank tops again.Tags: Back Tattoo Removal, Brookyln tattoo removal, fairy tattoo removal, laser tattoo removal
