Exes, Errors and Corporate Logos: The Most Regrettable Tattoos and How to Remove Them

Exes, Errors and Corporate Logos: The Most Regrettable Tattoos and How to Remove Them | Newport Tattoo Removal

Finding just the right tattoo for you is an unparalleled experience, allowing you to take something important to you and make it a permanent part of your body. Unfortunately, not every tattoo ages so gracefully. Sometimes a piece of ink which seems like a great idea at the time turns into a regret you wish you could undo. Here are some of the biggest mistakes people have made with their tattoos, and how to correct them.

Former Partners

Getting the name, initials or image of a partner is a great way to show your love and devotion to them. If the relationship goes south, however, you’re left with a permanent reminder of your ex. Not only is this often off putting to the individual with the tattoo, it can be a deal breaker for future partners who won’t appreciate being reminded of your ex every day when they look at you.

Poor Artists

Even when the spirit of a tattoo is good and holds up to the test of time, sometimes the quality of the art does not. If you’re getting inked on a budget you are particularly at risk of receiving suboptimal work, which ultimately needs to be removed or covered up.

Corporate Promotions

Some companies have turned to tattoos as a great source of advertisement. By offering promotions which promise rewards like free food from their store, they get customers to permanently tattoo the store’s name or logo on their body. Naturally, some of the recipients find that when the free rewards run out, so does their tolerance of the tattoo.

Changed Beliefs

As we grow and mature through the years, so do the things we believe or care about. Sometimes it can even happen due to circumstances outside your control altogether, like an individual you memorialized getting caught up in a scandal. When your ink no longer reflects your principles, it’s time for it to go.

What to Do With an Unwanted Tattoo

The good news for anyone who has made one of the above mistakes, or has a different reason to want their ink to go away, is that laser tattoo removal has never been better. Pros like Newport Tattoo Removal use lasers to break up the ink over a series of treatments, fading it until it is light enough to be covered up effectively, or removed entirely. If you’ve got a tattoo that no longer belongs on you, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a tattoo removal professional.

How Tattoo Regret Impacts Your Mental Health

How Tattoo Regret Impacts Your Mental Health | Newport Tattoo RemovalTattoos, for some, are liberating. Sometimes, they symbolize a time in your life when something mattered enough that you felt compelled to tattoo it on your body. Other times, tattoos are standard of a lovesick decision, a drunk choice or something you did with ample pressure from your peers.

So, there you are, stuck with ink that you don’t appreciate. Before you sink into sadness, assuming it’s a permanent decision, keep your mind open. It’s not a permanent decision, not with a place like Newport Tattoo Removal. To keep a tattoo that you don’t want can be detrimental on your mental health. In fact, here are some of the psychological effects of unwanted ink.

Painful Past Reminders

When it comes to trauma or any sort of past pain, one of the best pieces of advice that you can receive is to grow and move on from that experience. This is inherently difficult if you have a tattoo documenting that time of your life. Whether it’s a tattoo of an ex’s name or a tattoo from a trying time in your life, the reminder can negatively impact your mental health. This makes it difficult to move forward. You don’t want your tattoo to hold you in the past.

Inability to Start Fresh

Tattoos, at times, represent a phase in a person’s life. Perhaps you never thought you’d enter the corporate world or maybe you had a rebellious phase that you long since grew out of. Whatever the reason, it can be difficult to start a new life when your ink is holding you back. Are you ignoring job opportunities? Are you risking your career because you have tattoos that aren’t allowed? Do you feel like people make automatic assumptions about your ink, that aren’t true for you anymore? All of these things slowly chip away at a person’s mental health.

Embarrassment From Bad Ink

Not all tattoos are good tattoos. If you have an embarrassingly bad tattoo, then odds are your confidence is going to sink. While some people opt for cover up tattoos, these don’t always work. They particularly don’t work if you aren’t in the market for another tattoo. Removal saves you the embarrassment.

If you don’t love your tattoo, the truth is that it can be detrimental to your mental health. It can lead to you feeling depressed, stuck in the past, stagnant and even embarrassed. Your happiness matters don’t be shy about getting your ink removed. It could be the best choice you made.
