Until recent technological advancements in laser removal, you may assume that a tattoo is a pretty permanent commitment.
But there are a number of reasons for tattoo removal, from a tattoo blowout to faded ink or even a change in tattoo trends.
We look at the most common reasons why someone would get a tattoo removed.

Why do people get tattoos removed?
1. A poor quality tattoo
Getting a tattoo is a pretty big decision, and an equally big decision is the tattoo artist or studio you go to. Unfortunately, there are some tattoo artists out there who provide less-than-optimal tattoos, or you may get someone without much experience.
Either way, a poor quality tattoo that you’re not happy with is one of the most common reasons to have a tattoo removed - and thanks to new technologies, rapid removal is now an option.
2. The tattoo wasn’t quite right
Even though you approved a design, the end result may not have been quite what you were expecting. Perhaps it didn’t look right in the location you chose to have your tattoo, or it wasn’t exactly the same as the design.
Our revolutionary LightSense® technology uses a small spot size, making it incredibly accurate and effective at removing and fading tattoo ink meaning you can now change and evolve your tattoo design more easily.
Our low-energy laser significantly reduces any chance of blistering, scarring or lasting damage, which means less downtime between treatments and fast tattoo removal results.
3. Change of personal circumstances
A common reason to get a tattoo is for a loved one or family member - and it’s also a common reason people get their tattoos removed. Maybe you got a shared tattoo with a partner you’re no longer with, for example, or perhaps you’ve started a family and feel your tattoo is no longer appropriate or an indicator of who you are right now.
Our mission at NAAMA is to help you tell your story and personal evolution through your body art, whether that is a full removal or fading for a cover-up.
4. Trends and tastes change
One of the top reasons for tattoo removal is that your personal tastes simply change. This is often the case if you get your tattoo or tattoos at a young age, and they’re not reflective of your style as you get older.

5. Your tattoo fades
Tattoos fade over time, and may not look as ‘sharp’ as when they were new. A lot of our clients want to remove tattoos that don’t look as good as they once did, so they can start over again on fresh skin.
