8 Motivational Quotes to Inspire your Tattoo Removal

SocialMediaPostSept6Deciding to have a tattoo removed is almost always a more emotional and agonizing decision than getting a tattoo in the first place. Getting a tattoo is exciting – once you’ve decided on the art and found an artist who can capture your vision (most people don’t spend enough time on this part) , it’s a relatively quick process with a huge return. You can literally change your entire look with a couple hundred dollars and a few hours of time.

Tattoo removal, on the other hand, is a self-reflective process that involves looking at where one is in their life, identifying the sources of pain or regret and determining how to overcome these barriers. It can be both  spiritual and terrifying at the same time. There is a psychological hurdle that exists in admitting that your tastes or attitudes have changed and in some cases, overcoming the guilt or shame of facing your mistakes (such as a failed relationship).

Once the decision is made to have a tattoo removed, patients often feel a burden has lifted. They become energized and experience a feeling of personal growth. All doubt is erased as to whether it was the right choice. Their outlook brightens and their confidence increases because they’ve made the important decision to improve their lives.
