We’ve all been young, impulsive, and broke, so it’s no surprise that homemade tattoos are a popular phenomenon.
The upsides to homemade tattoos are that they are cheap and usually come with a good story. The downside, however, is that many people come to regret their homemade tattoos pretty quickly. Usually these tattoos are not notable for their skill, and it’s not uncommon to hear stories of words misspelled or objects so poorly drawn that a tattoo turns into a constant guessing game.
Luckily, some homemade tattoos come off readily with professional tattoo removal techniques. The easiest types of homemade tattoos to remove are those made using the needle prick method. This is where the design is drawn on your skin and a sterilized needle is used to make many small pricks in the skin. Ink is then smeared into the wounds. The ink in needle prick tattoos is usually close to the surface of your skin, which means the laser will easily be able to penetrate your dermis and break up the ink. Since less ink is typically used it also breaks up in fewer laser tattoo removal sessions.
