I acquired some pretty wicked tattoos: tribal stamp around my left wrist, my very own words to reside by on my upper back. But my biggest one is my flower blossom that uses quite a few colors. Is this going to be always a problem if I decide to eliminate it? Thanks man\" It will be makes things more complicated, that\'s for sure. Some tattoo removal methods are very sensitive to the type of ink pigment being used. As an example with laser methods, black red and pigment won\'t be an issue. But others will particularly when they\'re lighter. The issue is that lasers have difficulty targeting these ink layers. 1. Nontraditional colors, nontraditional methods The flip side of the coin is that it doesn\'t matter if you\'re tattoo is pink, purple, or some crazy green if you use methods such as the apricot scrub mentioned in my guide (check it out here: ) That\'s because exfoliation methods don\'t discriminate, they simply wear off dead layers of skin before the tattoo is exfoliated. Of course this really is one of several methods discussed in the guide. 2. Coverups Yet another thing you\'ll need to remember particularly when you\'re considering another tattoo is \"Will this be something I will modify or mask later?\" As an example pink flower petals is going to be much harder to mask than black which can be easily changed into a wheel, astrological symbol, or a number of other things. But you may never need to alter that tattoo, am I right? There\'s a reason you\'re on this page isn\'t there :) I\'ve tattoos of numerous types on every limb in my body. And I\'m perfectly cool with it because I understand how to reverse, cover, or modify most of them. As a specialist artist and remover, I guess that extra little knowledge helps. All I will say is be smart about your upcoming tattoo and always have a backup plan.
