Teenage tattoos are most regretted
Statistics show that about 20% of the American population has at least one tattoo. However, about 1 in 3 people between ages 18-30 has tattoo. A tattoo is meant to be permanent. However, some people will come to regret their tattoo either immediately after getting it or as they grow older.
According to a new survey, the younger a person is when they get a tattoo, the more likely they will regret it later on in life.
Since most tattoo parlors will not tattoo anyone less than 18 years of age, younger individuals will often get a tattoo at a "tattoo party" where a "tattoo artist" with or without any experience will give them a tattoo. The problem with this scenario is that there is often an increased risk of infection or complications. Sometimes at these parties, the tattoo needle will be shared amongst several individuals which leads to a risk of Hepatitis C or even HIV.
Therefore, it is important to really consider when and where a person gets a tattoo.
If you regret getting a tattoo, luckily you do certainly have options. The best option is to go through a series of laser tattoo removal sessions to remove that unwanted tattoo. Getting a tattoo that is meant to be permanent is simple. Getting it removed is not so easy. Therefore you'd want to consider going to a medical office and having a medical professional with experience remove your tattoo. Be sure to ask them to provide you with photos of tattoos they have personally removed in their office.
