Tattoos are uncomfortable – both while you’re getting them and if you decide to have them removed. Studies say that up to a third of people who have a tattoo end up regretting it, but removal can be costly and painful. Traditional tattoo removal has been described as feeling like your skin is being snapped by a rubber band or hit with specks of hot grease. Many people say the pain intensifies as the treatment goes on and can continue for days after the session. Traditional tattoo removal also requires multiple sessions, sometimes up to ten.
