Tattoos seem to be like fashion. Sometimes they are in and other times they are not. Over the past 10+ years a lot of celebrities have been getting tattoos on their bodies that symbolise different things to them. This has become a trend for a vast majority of the population as a sharp increase in people getting tattoos on their bodies has been happening all around the UK.
For a variety of reasons people want their tattoos removed. These can include regret, boredom, peer pressure, intoxication as well as others which leads a person to want to remove their tattoo as it is causing them a “mental pain” or embarrassment if the tattoo is in a very visible place. The “cure” for this is to either get a cover up done, or remove the tattoo in question completely.
Cover up or Removal?
This does depend on a number of factors but the main ones are location, age and price. As tattoos seem to be a sort of “addiction” a cover up will most likely be used by somebody who has had a tattoo recently and is still in the “tattoo phase”.
This is usually a younger person that is looking at price as well because a cover up can often be a cheaper way to “remove” the tattoo that was causing the “pain“/embarrassment. However there is still ink inside the person’s body in the form of another tattoo and thus this can become a vicious cycle.
The best way to break free of the cycle and be at peace with yourself is to totally remove the tattoo that is causing you to feel the way you do. You were born beautiful with no ink in your skin, so why put it there?

Does Removing Your Tattoo Hurt?
This is one of the most important questions people ask or have it in the back of their mind when looking for an answer to the general question of “tattoo removal“. The simple answer is: Yes, unfortunately. Just as the tattoo hurt when it got injected into the dermis layer of your skin, it will hurt to remove it.
Do not be fooled by the tattoo removal creams that promote the removal of tattoos with their cream products. This just bleaches the skin and makes it seem like the tattoo has faded but in fact it is the melanin in your skin that has.
If you are looking for the best tattoo removal method, you have come to the right place for information and advice on the subject. Here at Tattoo Removal Manchester we recommend 1 method:
This 1 method is proven (with scientific research backup) to be the most effective method when removing tattoos. There are 2 factors to take into account with this type of tattoo removal, which are time and money.
Put simply, other methods like tattoo removal by excision, are quicker than laser tattoo removal. It takes just one visit to the surgery in order to remove the tattoo. This method is primarily for small tattoos (although we do not recommend it) as it involves cutting the skin open to remove the ink and then stitching it back on. If it is performed on a large tattoo, skin grafts are usually used as well.
Laser tattoo removal on the other hand requires more than 1 session to get rid of the tattoo. However, scarring is much less of a worry than with the excision method, which is why we recommend it.
There is a large difference in price when comparing the 2 methods of removal. The price for surgery starts at around the £1000 mark in comparison with the laser method which can be as little as £35 per session.
Tattoo Removal on the NHS
We hear you. The ideal situation would be to get rid of the tattoo as fast as possible with as little cost. This is where the NHS would normally come in. Unfortunately the NHS require you to meet specific guidelines in order to get your tattoo removed by them. Information can be found here.
