8 Things To Consider When Scheduling A Laser Tattoo Removal Appointment

Do you have a tattoo you got years ago that you’re not a fan of anymore? Are you worried that your ink could be holding you back from growth in your career or in your pursuit of other life goals? Moran Laser & Salon in Nashville is happy to help with quality laser tattoo removal services, but hold your horses! We want to help you find the most satisfying solution, even if that doesn’t entail removing your tattoo. In today’s blog, we’d like to shed some light on some of the most common factors people consider when weighing laser tattoo removal. Read on to find out if getting your tattoo removed is truly right for you!

  • 1. Your Career Goals

Employment-related concerns are one of the most common reasons that people seek laser tattoo removal. However, the stigma isn’t nearly as strong as you might think. Times have changed, and some surveys have found that less than 14% of employers would be less likely to hire an individual for having a tattoo. However, in those same studies, 63% of employers said that it would depend on the role, as well as the number of tattoos and content of the tattoos that an individual has could impact their hiring decisions. So while having a tattoo isn’t an automatic disqualifier, laser tattoo removal could be useful to you if you have ink on highly visible areas of your body.

  • 2. Your Life Goals

If you’re concerned that your tattoos could impact your social relationships or your pursuit of other goals, your worries are likely overblown — just 22% of people say that they take people less seriously if they have tattoos.

  • 3. Your Budget

Laser tattoo removal is one of the least painful and most affordable methods for tattoo removal out there, but it takes more than one session to work completely. When budgeting for laser tattoo removal, keep in mind that most patients require two to eight sessions to completely remove a tattoo.

  • 4. The Time It Will Take

Similar to budgeting money for laser tattoo removal, be prepared to be patient with your results. We strongly recommend that patients wait at least six weeks between laser tattoo removal sessions to avoid skin damage, and if you have darker, larger tattoos you’d like removed, this could mean that your laser tattoo removal process could take the better part of a year to complete.

  • 5. The Location Of Your Tattoo

It’s recommended that you keep your tattoo covered for at least a week after a laser tattoo removal session in order to avoid sun damage, scratches, or other discomfort in the treatment area. If the tattoo you want removed is on an oft-exposed area of your body, such as on your arm or shoulder, we recommend starting your laser tattoo removal process in the winter, when it’s easier to keep your tattoo covered up comfortably.

  • 6. The Quality of The Laser Tattoo Removal Artist

An experienced laser tattoo removal artist is just as important as a skilled tattoo artist. For a successful tattoo removal, choose a highly-rated laser tattoo removal specialist like Jason Moran, who’s removed thousands of tattoos over the course of his 17-year career.

  • 7. Pre-Existing Conditions (If Applicable)

Laser tattoo removal is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or for people who use Accutane. When in doubt, call your doctor to ask if laser tattoo removal is safe and appropriate for you.

  • 8. Your Tattoo

If only part of your tattoo is wrong, such as if you have a misspelled word, consider removing that small part and getting it redone. Laser tattoo removal technology is precise enough to help you erase small mistakes so you can get the redone while keeping the rest of your tattoo intact.
