Tattoo Removal Online Education

Online Education Tattoo RemovalGirl, we’re not judging you for your $40 butterfly tattoo (as long as you aren’t judging us for the $60 eagle covering our right thigh). Trust us, you’re not the only one that has ever woken up with a splitting headache and some discount ink from Bubba’s Art House. But did you know that you can help yourself and others (ahem, us) with that little eyesore with the help of just a couple of weeks of tattoo removal online education?

Admittedly, we’ve all been 18 years old (or 25, or 37 or 52 for that matter). Few of us survived early adulthood without a peppering of poor decisions. We aren’t proud of them, but they made us who we are.

Take us for example, instead of getting a well thought out, strategically designed piece of artwork on our body, we bought a clearance tattoo out of the back of a van at a concert. Man, that was a fun night. The repercussions years later as we stare the literal eagle in the eye each time we shower is less fun, however.

And we certainly aren’t alone.

Tattoo regret:

As it turns out, tattoo regret is a very real thing. Be the carbuncle a silhouette of an ex lover’s face, a sports logo, your grandma’s name, or a woodpecker pushing a wheelbarrow of dirt (we know a guy…), there can be serious remorse over the ink that you commissioned.  According to History of Tattoos, 17% of those who have tattoos, regret them. Similarly, women are more likely to regret tattoos than men.

Guys, keep rocking that barbed wire around your bicep. More power to you, dude. But in case you have a bit of buyer’s remorse, we have a solution.

So much regret, so little time

If you know what tattoo regret feels like, you probably understand how magical tattoo removal is. As someone with a lamentable piece on your body, you know exactly what we’re talking about. You walk around with a tattoo you are acutely aware of. Even if it’s hidden, it feels painfully visible. The decision that you made, whether helped along by alcohol, or peer pressure, or a terrible breakup, has stuck. The indelible ink is a constant reminder of the remorse you feel.

Like we said, you aren’t the only one. So many people get tattoos on a whim and end up wishing they could wish them away later. Tattoos. In fact, as many as half of people between 18 and 35 years old have tattoos. With more than 328 million people roaming our great nation, there are millions and millions of people in that specific age group. On the same note, that’s millions and millions that regret the often-impromptu artwork.
