There are many reasons why a person would wish to have a tattoo removed. Of course, people mature and evolve over time. It is, therefore, normal for a person to see a tattoo differently five or ten years after getting it. Here are the top 5 reasons for tattoo removal:

1. Lifestyle changes
This is a very common motivation for tattoo removal. If you were previously affiliated to a particular gang, biker club or cheerleading squad in Toronto and you wish to move on from such a lifestyle, there are several adjustments that you have to make and tattoo removal is top on the list. Removing your tattoos is one of the strongest statements you can use to demonstrate your current state of mind.

2. Poor workmanship
No one wants to walk around displaying a really bad quality tattoo. Anyone who has had the misfortune of landing an incompetent tattoo artist can attest to the pain of seeing a really atrocious tattoo on full display on their body. For such a person. tattoo removal becomes the most viable solution.

3. Entering military service
Tattoos can turn out to be a hindrance for people who want to serve their countries by joining the military. It is not uncommon to see people who want to join the military deciding to remove their tattoos first. It is important to note that there are some tattoos that are acceptable in the military.

4. Breakups
We have seen a number of celebrities who decided to remove tattoos displaying the names or images of their partners after breakups. Angelina Jolie removing the Billy Bob tattoo on her arm is a prime example. If a tattoo reminds you of a person that you wish to move on from, it is best to remove it.

5. Career change
If you are seeking to join a more professional business setting in a city like Toronto, you might find it necessary to remove tattoos that might give potential clients the wrong impression about you. A good number of clients who have come to us have cited this as their season for seeking laser tattoo removal.

What are the advantages of laser tattoo removal?

Although people were still removing tattoos before laser technology came around, previous methods often left scars and ink stains that just looked horrendous. In many cases, people wished that they had not removed the tattoos. Fortunately, laser technology has solved these problems.
In addition to being highly effective, this method keeps discomfort at a minimum. At the same time, with this technology, it is possible to remove colors in a selective manner, which makes the method much safer compared to traditional methods. At the end of the day, you want a method that guarantees your safety and minimizes the discomfort. This method gives you both.

How does it work?

Lasers are used to remove tattoos. A light beam with a high intensity is used to break up the different pigment colors. Your age, color and size of your tattoos will determine how many treatments you will require. The depth of the tattoo pigment also has a bearing on the number of treatments you might need.

In summary

As tattoo culture continues to gain popularity in Toronto and Canada at large, some of the old taboos associated with them are slowly fading away. But with the demand, it is inevitable that more and more people will find a need to remove tattoos from time to time. Fortunately, tattoo removal is easier than it used to be thanks to laser technology. At HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy, we offer some of the best services when it comes to laser tattoo removal.
