Tattoos are an interesting way of having a memory or story etched in your mind and on your body forever. However, that is not all that tattoos are for. They can be used as body art, for cosmetic purposes or to hide painful scars. Tattoos are a way of expressing your individuality.
However, at times you might outgrow your tattoo or feel that the memory is painful and no longer wish to associate with it. Did you get it on a whim, on a dare, or in passion? Was there a mistake in your tattoo or do you not like the way it has aged?
In such cases, tattoos no longer need to be permanent or forever. You can opt for tattoo removal by speaking to your dermatologist.
Well, the process of removing a permanent tattoo will hurt, but the pain is bearable. Probably much more bearable than the idea of living with your unwanted tattoo, be it from a difficult memory or simply a personal choice.
In fact, for most people, the sensation of removal is comparable to the one experienced during the application of the tattoo. It is commonly described as the sensation of being snapped by a rubber band.
The level of pain you’ll experience also depends on the location of your tattoo, your threshold for pain, and on the kind of laser removal treatment used. The size of the tattoo you wish to remove also should be considered as it will decide the number of sessions you would require. There are a number of treatment options available including laser treatment, surgical removal and dermabrasion.
Older and amateur tattoos are easier to remove as the skin has completely healed, while the ones located on extremities are difficult to treat since the circulation is relatively poor. Black pigment absorbs all wavelengths and hence, tattoos with black ink are the easiest to remove, while green, yellow, and fluorescent inks are notoriously difficult to remove. There are different laser options to remove certain pigmented tattoos. The Q-switch is the most common type of laser used to remove tattoos with purple and violet pigment.
While some pain is inevitable, it can be kept to the minimum through the below mentioned simple methods:
Prior to treatment, it is advisable to discuss all your doubts and discomforts regarding the procedure with your dermatologist and get them resolved to avoid any complications during the procedure. It will also help your doctor to select a tattoo removal plan that is best suited for you and will provide great, painless results.

Tattoo removal cost depends on the size of the tattoo. Design, color and written texts are other factors that influence this cost.

Tattoo removal is not more painful than the process of getting one. It can be compared to a tiny sting or the snapping of a rubber band on your skin. However, there are various medications you can take to reduce the pain.
