Just as there are stereotypes of people who get tattoos, there are stereotypes of people who get their ink removed. Many assume the person made a dumb decision in artwork or artist. This can definitely be the case, but there are more reasons why people want ink gone. These three groups of people show how tattoo removal crosses all demographics.
It’s just not common folk who can lose job opportunities from having too many tattoos or ones that are offensive to the general public. Even celebrities can suffer from the stigma, no matter how rich and famous they are. One such person was Rumer Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Sporting 22 tattoos before the age of 30, she chose to remove some of her ink because it was limiting the acting roles she could get.
Rumer isn’t the only one to go this route. Many other actors have as well, such as Angeline Jolie, Marc Anthony, and Kaley Cuoco. The most common reason is to get rid of names, dates, and symbols connected to exes. For others, such as 50 Cent and Mark Walberg, it is the same as Rumer: to boost their acting careers.
Gang members are known for their extensive body art, so you probably wouldn’t associate them with tattoo removal. However, not everyone stays in a gang. Some choose to turn their lives around and want to get rid of reminders of their past. Erasing the ink breaks their former connection so they can create a new identity for themselves. This can also provide them with protection from rival gangs and eliminate embarrassing conversations with people about the artwork, especially their children.
Soldiers are another group known for having lots of body art, but the military actually has regulations on tattoos that people must follow in order to enlist and remain in good standing. While each branch has its own rules, and these rules have become less strict the past few years, there are still certain boundaries in place across the board to encourage some level of professionalism.
None of the following tats are allowed:
Furthermore, ink on the face is not permissible.
