When you don’t get the tattoo you wanted
As NAAMA studio photographer Britt can vouch, often clients are removing their tattoos after a “miscommunication” between themselves and the tattoo artist. Whether that’s a major one, think text written backwards, or something more minor.
We should also remember when talking about tattoos that we are dealing with artists, with their own creative visions and portfolios to curate.
Often, they have their own ideas about how a tattoo should look, or even where it should be placed.
After surveying 2000 people, NAAMA discovered that as many as 18% of people said their tattoo didn’t come out how they had hoped. We wouldn’t tolerate a restaurant where a fifth of the dishes were served cold.
As we’ve seen there are many reasons why people would want to remove a new tattoo ASAP - and can. If, like Maeve, you’ve wondered how soon you can remove a fresh tattoo, find out by booking a consultation and patch test with one of our experts in our
Central London studio.
