Do you need to get a tattoo removed, but you don't want to spend a lot of money?
I have to admit that I don't have any personal experience with this, seeing as I do not have and never have had a tattoo, and never plan to. But I can understand that some people may have gotten on while young and now wish to remove it. Or some tattoo enthusiasts may want to remove a tattoo to give themselves room to get an even bigger and more impressive one!
If you're looking to get rid of a tattoo, here are some tips:
- Check your health insurance to see if this type of procedure is covered. You never know what your insurance might cover!
- Look into all the possible methods of tattoo removal to decide which one is right for you. Some include surgical excision, bleaching, dermabrasion, and lasers. If you decide on lasers, ask which laser technology they use - there have been many updates to laser tattoo removal in the past thirty years, when lasers were first introduced for tattoo removal.
- Check all possible sources for tattoo removal. Consult with a dermatologist, or ask friends and family who have tattoos removed for referrals. Do an online search for laser tattoo removal procedure and your location to find local providers.
- Call each of the possible providers, or meet with them in person, to find out their costs and what services they provide. Ask for names and phone numbers of patients who were satisfied with their services, if possible, and follow up on them - find out if the tatto removal process was a success for them.
- Once you've chosen a provider, negotiate with them over the costs and services. After all, everything is negotiable!
