Hidden but not gone
Impulsive decisions from one’s youth or thoughtless, impulsive art. There are many reaons why some tattoos seemingly need fixing or a complete, covering overhaul to replace the original picture. A new, covering picture depends on how dark the underlying tattoo is and how scarred the skin is on that area of the body. Every client and situation is unique. The artist cannot remove a former tattoo from the skin, as that is a job that requires a plastic surgeon, but it must be remembered that a scar will even remain after laser treatment. On the other hand, when a tattoo is professionally made and the art is carefully considered, why would the need for its removal ever become an issue? A change of design or style can be a much better option!
