There are instances when people want to cover up an old tattoo. If you are thinking of modifying your current tattoo, not fully removing it, perhaps tattoo lightening is the solution. This is a simple procedure that utilizes the same technology as complete tattoo removal.
Getting tattoo removal treatment usually takes few sessions before the ink is completely erased. By going through several treatment sessions, the ink will fade but won't be totally removed. With tattoo lightening treatment, your tattoo artist will have an easier job mending , altering, or reconstructing a tattoo. Since the old tattoo will be evenly faded, they no longer need to use excessive black ink on your new design. Now, you can have a new tattoo to beautifully cover up an outdated one.
If you want to lighten up your tattoo, contact Dream Tattoo Removal. Our licensed practitioners can determine the right amount of sessions you will need in order to get the amount of fade you want.
Lidocaine injection is a local anesthetic (numbing medication). Patients choose to receive a Lidocaine injection prior to their tattoo removal treatment, in order to completely numb the treated area. Lidocaine injections reduce any pain or discomfort that the tattoo removal laser may cause.
Many people who are unhappy with their tattoo choices still want to have a tattoo, just not the one they currently have. The reasons for this can be the same as for those for getting them fully removed, from having a change of heart or interests or a past romantic partner who is no longer with you. A cover up tattoo must be darker than the ink below it. By lightening the tattoo, you make it easier for your tattoo artist to create something new out of the old, without relying heavily on black in the new design.
