When making the decision to get a tattoo there has always been the understanding that you are making a permanent decision that will last a lifetime. However, with the prominence and effectiveness of tattoo removal technology that is now available, there has been a collective change in the way that we as a society approach tattoos. No longer a long-term commitment, many people are re-assured knowing that if they do decide to remove, alter or update their body ink in the future, there are options available to them.

There are a number of reasons why someone may choose to remove their tattoo – it may not have turned out as planned, their life circumstances change, the tattoo is no longer reflective of who they are or they wish to clear their skin to make way for a new tattoo.

According to MJ Driver, renowned tattoo removalist and tattoo enthusiast from MJ Driver Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic, a number of patients are now opting to remove older tattoos for new artwork; “50% of our clients are lightening or fading the tattoos to get new, better looking tattoos that represents them better as an older and wiser adult compared to an 18-20 year old.”

No matter the reason, if you are an individual considering removing or altering a tattoo, you are not alone. Research suggests that 27% of Australians with tattoos regret their ink, and 15% of that number have begun to investigate erasing the tattoo for good.
