Tattoo is a permanent picture, design, or other marking made on the skin by pricking it and staining it with an indelible dye.
Piercing is the practice of piercing holes in parts of the body so that rings or studs can be inserted.
Severe pain, redness, swelling and/or a pus discharge or a foul odour emanating from the area suggest infection. It is not something to be taken lightly. See your doctor immediately.
Peeling and flaking of a new tattoo is perfectly normal. It is old, dead skin peeling off and some of the flakes may even contain some ink. Sometimes you can actually see a duplicate image of part of your tattoo peeling off – it is also perfectly normal and there is no need to panic. Do NOT scratch, pick or peel them. It will all be done in a few days and the colour of your tattoo will start to return to normal.
Although moles are usually benign and we generally ignore them, there is always a possibility that a mole could serve as an indicator of cancer. This makes the preservation of a mole important. One of the ways a mole can indicate a problem is by changing colour. If it has been tattooed over with pigment, it may hinder your ability to spot any colour differences. For your safety, it is best that a mole not be tattooed over.
Pain is relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. Severity of pain differs from person to person.
Yes, as long as you go to a reputable artist who is following all recommended safety precautions. Since they could be source of transmission of deadly infections like HIV, or Hepatitis if strict safety measures are not followed.
It is a major evolution in the cosmetic medical field. Tattoos are permanent because the needle of a tattoo gun pierces the surface layer of the skin, called the epidermis, and delivers ink into the dermis, or secondary, layer of the skin. Ink stays in this area simply because it is larger than the neighboring bloodstream. Laser tattoo removal is the process of breaking these ink molecules into smaller pieces and allowing them to be absorbed into the bloodstream and disappear.
At The Esthetic Clinics, we use Q switched lasers for removing tattoos.
The cost would depend on the number of sessions a person would require to undergo for tattoo removal.
