There is little doubt that body ink has arrived in mainstream America with as many as 20 percent of men and women in the U.S. sporting some type of tattoo today. The rise in inking has also led to an increase in tattoo regret, or a desire to remove the body art. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) released figures showing more than 45,000 people in the U.S. pursued cosmetic procedures to remove their body ink in 2013. At Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kaweski offers tattoo removal that produces excellent results with little discomfort or downtime.

Reasons for Tattoo Removal

There are a number of reasons why people are choosing to remove their body ink today:

  • Relationship break-ups
  • Inability to get job or promotion
  • Poor quality of body art
  • Conspicuous location
  • Changes to personal style

For some, it becomes the simple fact that the body art that seemed so “cool” in your 20s is now looking out of place in your more mature 30s or 40s. Others may become uncomfortable sporting body ink after starting a professional job, getting married or having children. Some professions even prohibit visible tattoos, which can impact your ability to land your dream job. Effective tattoo removal procedures are also fueling the trend.
