The intention for just about every tattoo is that it will be with you forever, a permanent part of who you are. But the instant tattoo regret described above is actually quite common. Sometimes the tattoo was a spur-of-the-moment decision that the person immediately regrets, and other times the recipient simply does not like the way a thoroughly-planned tattoo turned out.

Can You Remove a Tattoo Right After You Get It?

Yes, in some cases we can start laser tattoo removal the very next day after a tattoo was applied. An in person consultation of the tattoo in question can identify if we can treat the new tattoo or if we need to let certain elements heal before treatment. In some cases, we are not able to treat the new tattoo with our laser technology until it has completely healed from the tattoo application process. In some cases it may take 6 to 8 weeks be for we can treat the tattoo. During that time of healing, you’ll want to take very good care of your tattoo during this time so that your skin heals smoothly with no scarring.

So, in some cases, the bad news is that you will have to put up with your unwanted, brand new tattoo for a couple of months. But the good news is that we can certainly remove it for you once it is healed.
