Diamonds You Can Sell, But a Tattoo Lasts Forever!

This past decade, a new and disturbing trend has emerged in fashion and I am not talking about anything to do with Lady Gaga! I am referring to the new accessory that can be a permanent way to describe how much you love someone or how much of a die hard sports fan you are. Being a heavily tattooed person myself, I don’t discourage people from getting them but what a lot of people don’t understand is that they are forever.

Even with costly laser tattoo removal, not all pigments come out easily or even come out at all! According to leading dermatologists at Lakeview Clinic, you can end up with more than you bargained for. “Excessive skin fading can occur. Even permanent scarring can happen as a result of laser tattoo removal. Some tattoos on the fingers, ankles, and feet are not good candidates for laser tattoo removal and often painful solutions such as chemically removing the tattoo are the only option,” according to Dr. Eugene Mandrea.

What is disturbing even yet is the mistakes that are being made with creating the tattoo in the first place. Just this past October, Eugenia Bebis sued Mystic Tattoo over her backwards Chicago White Sox Logo (featured). It is estimated that it will take close to $50,000 worth of tattoo removal and tattooing over it to correct the problem. So make sure to think very hard about the tattoo you want. The fashion accessory you love today could be a huge mistake tomorrow!
