10 Reasons People Remove Tattoos

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Wednesday, April 26, 2017

There are lots of reasons people consider getting their tattoos removed. Initially getting ink can seem like a great idea, and you'll always love that barbed wire on your bicep right? Unfortunately times change, and so do peoples attitudes toward the permanent artwork on their bodies. If you fall into one of the following 12 categories of tattoo regret, it may be time to consider getting that ink removed for good especially if it is affecting your employment.

1. Body Placement

When you're 18 and everyday the mirror greets you with the healthiest, most toned version of your self, tattoo location is often an afterthought. Fast metabolism is a wonderful thing. However now that you're in your 30's, that tummy-tat has gotten significantly more shapely. Short of joining a gym and getting your act together, tattoo removal may be your best bet.

2. Cover Up Gone Wrong

It takes a skilled artist to cover up a tattoo, and if you opt to go the cheap route when picking one, you may end up worse off.

3. Impaired Judgment

Sometimes there’s no accounting for taste. If you find yourself at the tattoo parlor after a rough night out on the town, your judgment might just be slightly impaired. The good news is you don’t have to live with those decisions forever.

4. Your Tattoo Has Faded

The grayish splotch on your shoulder was once a bright and vibrant tattoo, but years of basking in the sun and enjoying the beach has caught up to you. If you’ve neglected your ink to this point, you may just want to get rid of it all together.

5. You’ve broken up

One of the top reasons people choose to get a tattoo removed is that it serves as a painful reminder of love lost. If that significant other didn’t turn out to be THE ONE after all, why live with the heartbreak forever?

6. What Was Cool Then, Isn’t Now

Getting back to barbed wire, why? Just why? (Sorry Brian Urlacher fans)

7. Joining the Military

Getting some military themed artwork to honor your service years is common, but you’ll want to make sure they accept the tats you already have. Approval before you enlist is subject to the regulations set by each branch of the armed services.

8. Parenthood

Bringing a child into the world can definitely give you a different perspective on things, and “Laugh Now, Cry Later” may not be the message you want to instill in your offspring. 

9. It Was Misspelled

Believe it or not, this still happens, a lot. If you want to get lettering done, double check, then triple check. If that still doesn’t work and you end up with “No Regerts” on your arm, its time to get that tattoo removed.

10. Your Tattoo Doesn’t Say What You Think It does

Getting a tattoo on vacation to an exotic location can be a great way to commemorate a life-changing experience. Another experience you may end up having is when the locals tell you that your tattoo means something nonsensical.
