Choose your tattoo remover wisely

by admin 0 comments


We live in a society of instant gratification, and it is not surprising that this translates into the tattoo world as well. Many people want their tattoos right way without doing the proper research to make sure they have one done that they will want permanently. About a quarter of Australians in their twenties have at least one tattoo. Among this group, about a third regret getting their tattoo, so it is easy to see why tattoo removal in Melbourne is a rapidly growing business. However, when it comes to picking a removal specialist, they are far from equally qualified. Many people believe that in order to professionally remove a tattoo, you must be a licensed and heavily trained professional, but this is definitely not the case. In reality, there are far more unskilled tattoo removers out there than skilled ones. While some tattoo removers may boast titles like  "accredited clinician" or "certified laser practitioner", this oftentimes just means they took a quick course on how to use the machine, and may not have any formal training on how to properly remove tattoos.

“Laser procedures, including those used for tattoo removal, are not regulated under the Public Health Act 2010 and Public Health Regulation 2012, because they do not carry the risk of transmission of a disease from client to client,” a NSW Health spokeswoman told

  Unfortunately, incorrectly attempting to remove tattoos can cause heavy scarring and other permanent injury. Making matters worse, many unskilled removers use inferior machines that are not as effective as the MedLite C6 Q-Switched Laser, which is the industry standard for tattoo removal. Additionally, many companies try to sell creams that supposedly effectively remove tattoos, but are typically filled with dangerous ingredients and are not effective for complete removal of tattoos. If you are considering removing a tattoo, make sure to do your research. Find a credible tattoo removal company, and make sure you research their credentials. You want to find reviews, see if they have adequate training, and make sure they are experienced. A good tattoo remover will approach this highly difficult task as an apprentice, and learn the correct way to remove tattoos for years. While it may be expensive to use a highly trained tattoo removal specialist up front, you will save money, time, grief, and permanent damage to your body in the long run.

Tattoo Removal in Melbourne on the rise

Inner Melbourne has seen a large influx of tattoo removal businesses, with two removal specialist operator even within a quarter of a kilometre of each other. Despite this intense competition among operators, it is still believed that there will be plenty of business to go around.  While the popularity of tattoos is at an all-time high, there is also a growing trend of people wanting to get rid of their tattoos.

One in seven Australians has a tattoo, according to a 2012 study from the National Health and Medical Research Council. More than a third of Australians regret getting inked and one in seven of this group are considering removal. -

  While tattoos have boomed in popularity, there is a certain segment of the population that is getting inked less frequently. Many counter-culture groups are even starting to reject tattoos as they see them becoming too mainstream. Being a 'cleanskin' is now almost cooler than having tattoos. This has led to an increase in tattoo removal among this segment of the Melbourne population. In addition, tattoos have been becoming more mainstream over the last couple of decades, and the original generation that had a large percentage of the population receive tattoos has now aged into adulthood. Now in their 30’s, many members of this original group of tattoo getters are regretting the tattoo choices of their 20’s. For many, the tattoo they received as a 21 year old may not seem appropriate to them now that they are a parent, or rising in the corporate world. These factors, combined with better technology of tattoo removal, are resulting in an explosion of tattoo removal businesses. While tattoos have been around forever, their sudden rise of popularity in the last few decades have resulted in more and more removal businesses. These removal shops in Melbourne are expected to thrive, and help people that are not satisfied with their current tattoos. If there is a tattoo that you no longer wish to display, there is hope that it will be fully gone someday!

Rethinking your ink?

In the last couple of decades, the rise of tattoos is undeniable. While in the past tattoos were taboo and considered low class, they have come a long way in public perception. It is estimated that nearly one third of adults now have at least one tattoo. With this sudden rise of tattoos among the general population, it is only natural there will be some mistakes. Many people get tattoos done that they regret, and the market of tattoo removal in Melbourne and around Australia has grown immensely. In the past, tattoo removal included skin grafts or bleaching, but now is done almost exclusively with high powered lasers. While removal technology has come a long way, it is still a procedure that can be expensive, painful and dangerous if you choose the wrong provider. Getting a tattoo removed can be more painful than having one done, and the lasers used are powerful enough to burn the skin - so it's extremely important to partner with a professional!  Tattoo removals are often broken up into several treatments, and overtime the lasers remove the ink from your body permanently, so be prepared for several treatments. In many areas there is no regulation on who is allowed to practice these tattoo removals, so make sure you do research, and find someone professional and qualified for this delicate procedure. With the rise in tattoos, it is only natural that the amount of people regretting their decisions on tattoos would rise as well. If you are considering getting a tattoo, make sure you are thorough and do things correctly.

  • Never get a spur of the moment tattoo.
  • Thoroughly research and think out exactly what you want your tattoo to be, and make sure it is something that will be important to you in the future.
  • Research and find a good tattoo artist that will be able to bring your vision to life, and think it over for a while before you have the ink done.
  • Remember that tattoos are very difficult to remove, and that sometimes our tastes change over time.
  If you follow these steps, you can have a piece of art that you love for life.  However, if like some of us, you're "rethinking the ink", we can help! Book now for your obligation-free consultation with the Melbourne Tattoo Removal specialists.
