Our tattoo removal affiliate shared with us the story of a young woman who came to them in the hopes that they could remove two tattoos for her: one on her left forearm and another that traced the path of her wedding ring on her ring finger. Now divorced, both tattoos represented a life she had left behind.
Furthermore, she told our affiliate, after her divorce she began working as a teacher of developmentally disabled children, and she felt very self-conscious about the highly visible tattoos. She tried to hide them by wearing rings and long-sleeved shirts, but still felt that they left the wrong impression with her colleagues, supervisors, and the families of the children she taught. After agonizing over her problem, she consulted with a local tattoo shop in the hopes that they could create a new tattoo on top of the old one on her forearm. Wisely, they suggested instead that she consult a tattoo removal clinic, and they sent her to our affiliate.
As a teacher herself, our tattoo removal affiliate’s patient was happy to have the process of tattoo removal explained to her carefully and in detail by our affiliate’s clinician. Laser tattoo removal, she learned, is a safe and effective method of removing tattoos of all shapes, sizes and colors. The laser light penetrates deep enough into the skin to break down the ink particles, which are then slowly absorbed harmlessly into the body.
The Olympia, WA tattoo removal clinic, which is recognized as a “Center of Excellence” by the Dermatology and Laser Industry, features a state of the art Q-Switch YAG laser. This beautifully made machine uses four different wavelengths of light to effectively treat tattoos safely and comfortably.
After several sessions of laser treatments, this dedicated teacher was thrilled with the results of her tattoo removal experience. “Finally I’ll be able to wear short-sleeved shirts!” she exclaimed to the clinician. Removal of the tattoo left her visibly more confident and pleased with her self-image. If you are interested in speaking with a Blink Tattoo Removal affiliate, contact us today!
