“I have a tattoo of my ex’s name right across the front of my chest. She was great until she wasn’t, that’s all I can really say about her! Obviously I need to get this off but my friend who had laser removal said I might want to just do a cover-up instead. What are your thoughts, Dorian?”
Coverups can do a lot more than you think
You may think that covering up Jessica or Cassondra in block letters would be a difficult job. You might be surprised. Oftentimes we can hide these in dragons or other extremely complex designs. If the pattern is written in cursive, vines are an option, mystical figures, you name it. Any artist worth his salt can take what you have as a base and suggest multiple options to you.
As for me? I guess I got lucky because my ex had a short name 🙂 Lots of options there.
If you want it totally gone
Okay, let’s say you’ve made up your mind already and you don’t want the tattoo at all anymore.
Well you already know I’m an advocate of all-natural, laserless removal. Cheaper, safer, and more effective if you just follow the darn guide! (Here it is by the way:)
The thing I love about home based removal methods is that they reinvigorate the skin as well. Laser takes away, but exfoliation methods add fresh new layers of skin using safe, skin healthy ingredients.
For example my aloe vera gel method not only removes the tattoo but softens the skin around it! Yes, it requires 3 to 4 daily applications, but when you’re talking just a few weeks removal time versus six months minimum for laser-based methods, the extra short-term effort is well worth it!
