Tattoo
A tattoo is a type of body art that is created when ink penetrates the dermis of the skin and changes the pigment of it.

tattooThis type of physical modification has been performed throughout the centuries by many different cultures.

It is used by both sexes and has become a popular form of self expression. In the United States it has taken off exponentially in the past few years and has become as mainstream as a haircut.

Individuals can choose any design that they want for their tattoo. It can consist of pictures, words or a combination of the two.

Usually the tattoo has a deep meaning for its owner. Although, curiously, many people place their tattoos in areas that they can never see, such as on the back, so it is hard to know what type of pleasure they personally derive from this art form they cannot see.

However, sometimes people realize they have made a mistake after they get a tattoo but removal is very costly. One of the effective ways of removing a tattoo is with a laser treatment. There are different lasers that will attack different color pigments in the skin. This is why it will sometimes take time to complete the removal. For example you may need to go one time to remove the color red from your tattoo and once the skin is healed you will need to return to remove the color blue.

A less expensive and longer route is to use tattoo removal creams. These can be effective over time with consistent use. When using fade creams you need to be careful to apply proper sunscreen as well to prevent from damaging the skin.
