I have several tattoos and I like this kind of body art very much. Unfortunately a lot of people do their first tattoo not by a specialist. I have a friend, who made a tatoo of rabbit on the leg. She made it at the age of 16 and the master who did it was not a good specialist at all. Now my friend is 32 and her rabbit doesn't look like a rabbit anymore... Friend says that it was a mistake and she is ashamed to show her tattoo. I really don't understand why not to draw something beautiful on top and cover this "piece of art" or not to remove it at all. Nowadays there are so much methods of removing tattoos and people have choice.

To my mind tatoo is a real work of art. It is the mean of expressing your character, your tastes and your soul. Tastes differ, and the same thing may appear nice or ugly for different people. Also human grows and changes during all his life so the tastes of one particular person may also change a lot. That is why people start to like or more often dislike the tatoos whis they have done in their youth and try to remove them or to change. It's good that nowadays there are lots of ways to do that.

For me those strange people who after tattooing, beginning to remove it. Why then do we had to do a tattoo? It is quite an important step, because the pattern always remains on the skin and difficult to remove. But if it happened and the tattoo bothered, probably the most effective way to get rid of it, to do laser removal, though the cost is not cheap. Not worth it to do the removal. Sometimes it's better to leave a tattoo than going with a scar, and the article shows many ways, but generally try to avoid stupidity.
