Tattoo removal up 440% over the last decade
More and more people are getting their tattoos removed by laser for a variety of reasons.
“The tattoo removal industry is still growing and expected to hit $83.2 million over the next four years, keeping pace with growth in the overall tattoo industry, according to research firm IBISWorld. Revenue for the industry overall is estimated to be $3.4 billion in 2014, an annualized growth rate of just 2.9%, though there is strong demand for tattoos with intricate designs, such as 3-D tattoos, says IBISWorld lead analyst Andy Brennan. There are nearly 8,000 tattoo businesses in the U.S., with no dominant player.
Tattoo removal can also be a public statement. Griffith was recently photographed leaving a skin specialist in West Hollywood with a bandage on her right arm and was also photographed with the outline of the heart-shaped tattoo, but the name of her estranged husband almost erased. American teens may also find a cautionary tattoo tale in pop star Justin Bieber and check their smartphones to see if he will remove a tattoo on his wrist that bears a striking resemblance to his former girlfriend Selena Gomez.” Quoted from http://www.marketwatch.com/story/tattoo-removal-surges-440-over-the-last-decade-2014-07-15
