Yes. Tattoo removal is safe and effective. Even with regular care, most of us may experience discomfort before our skin heals properly. The best way to avoid discomfort? Try a tattoo removal gel beforehand to help with the pain and inflammation and keep the skin moist.
I think I already have a tattoo in my arm, will it still burn when the tattoo removal gel is applied?
While some people have had success removing tattoos in their arm as a result of tattoo removal, it only is a precaution that you should carry out carefully before getting inked. If you are concerned about burning, then wear clothing with adequate waterproof protection, such as yoga pants or a yoga jacket.
Should I wait a couple of days before getting tattooed?
The best way to avoid tattoo burn is waiting at least 24 hours before getting a tattoo in a tattoo removal gel before being tattooed. To avoid any chance of burning, don’t wear any clothing that is tight and light, as it might create an open air burn.
What about tattoo creams?
As mentioned previously, tattoo removal creams are safe and effective if applied correctly. Most of them do not contain any additives which might trigger an allergic reaction in some people if they are taken in too early in the healing process.
What are the benefits of tattoo removal creams?
Most of the time, a tattoo removal gel will be the correct method to go ahead and tattoo. This option is especially useful if you have had a bad tattoo or have had an allergic reaction to tattoo removal creams.
As a result, you do not run the risk of going back to get a tattoo that is bigger than the one you got, as you will have your skin healed much faster. If you have a good tattoo which you got from a professional, you can safely skip this, which can mean a lot of money down the drain.
