Listen: have you bid farewell to your tattoo?

In the buzzing tattoo world, there’s quite the ‘ink-teresting’ trend emerging. Research from LaserHQ found that a bold 40% of adults are considering ‘laser farewells’ to their tattoos, while a surprising 5% have already bid adieu to their inked companions.

It’s like a tattoo renaissance, or maybe a ‘re-think-aissance’!

But here’s the real kicker: even the youngest of the tattooed crowd, the 18 and 19-year-olds, are already getting cold feet. A whopping 9% of these fresh inkers are looking at their new tats and thinking, “Maybe not?” It’s a stark reminder of the age-old wisdom: ‘think before you ink’—because tattoos stick around longer than those teenage years.
