Do’s and Don’ts of Removing a Tattoo

Tattoo That is regretable

Did your tattoo turn out completely different from what you had in mind? Did you realize that Chinese character on your arm is actually a rude word? It’s probably not your proudest moment, but don’t despair, nowadays there are secure, professional ways of removing a tattoo.

However, here are some important do’s and don’ts you may want to bear in mind before and during your sessions, to prevent any unwanted complications.


  1. Share information about medical conditions and medicine you’re taking.

It is important to tell your tech about any medical conditions you may suffer from, particularly skin disorders and immune system diseases, as well as all the medication you are currently taking, as they may lead to complications during and after your tattoo removal sessions. Don’t hesitate to let them know if any changes occur on the health and medication front.Progression of tattoo removal

  1. Wear sunscreen.

Although it is always recommended that you use sunscreen, for health reasons, it is even more critical that you do so when undergoing tattoo removal treatment. Laser tattoo removal works by targeting dark pigment, which means that getting a tan puts you at risk of complications.

  1. Report allergic reactions.

Some types of tattoo ink, blue and red ink in particular, contain toxic minerals (like cobalt and mercury), which can cause allergic reactions. If you developed such reactions when you first got the tattoo, they tend to recur when trying to get it removed, sometimes taking severe forms, so you should definitely report allergic reactions before starting your sessions.



  1. Don’t try laser tattoo removal if you are or may be pregnant.

The toxic components of some inks are a high risk factor for pregnant women, so if you are or suspect you may be pregnant, you may want to reschedule that tattoo removal job.

  1. Don’t get a tan (spray tans included).

For reasons already mentioned above, you should avoid at all costs getting a tan before going in for your tattoo removal sessions. This goes for a spray tan as well. In case you already got a spray tan, be sure to clear the skin portion which will be subjected to tattoo removal treatment.

  1. Don’t take antibiotics.

A side effect of antibiotics is increasing your skin’s sensitivity to light, which is not something desirable when undergoing any kind of laser procedure. For health and safety reasons, avoid antibiotics while undergoing tattoo removal treatment. If you have been on antibiotics, you should wait at least 3 to 10 days for them to be out of your system before going in for a laser tattoo removal job.

  1. Don’t have unrealistic expectations.

Removing a tattoo takes time. Most people will need an average 10 sessions to get a tattoo completely removed, but this may vary depending on several factors, from its location and ink color to environmental factor and one’s immune system. It is important to be patient and follow your tech’s recommendations to get the best results.

Three Top Tips for a Smooth Bathroom Renovation Experience

Have you ever walked into a bathroom and through WOW, how to I get one of these!

Bathroom Renovation Specialist

Recently me and my partner done exactly that. Jenny, our long time friend from our long lost high school days launched into an endeavour of huge proportions back in the late summer months of 2016. It was all hush, hush between the group for the most part but Jenny let us in so we could cover the story on my new site.

So here it is. Now all the dust has settled, let’s take a look at what was done right, and what could have been made more simple with a little preparation before the bathroom renovation began.

Choosing the right bathroom renovation contractor

From the start, Jenny was anxious about choosing the perfect bathroom renovation specialist. A team of experts who had years of experience renovating bathrooms was the top priority, with the price coming in a close second. “The stress while choosing a bathroom contractor was overwhelming” Jenny said when we first spoke about the new bathroom.

Having full confidence in the people you employ gives you the freedom to stand aside and worry less as big, bulky, contractors rip into your house with fast tools and loud noises.

Eventually, Jenny went with Full Bathroom Renovations found at

Needless to say, the bathroom looks stunning.

Do you need a porta-potty?

Hiring a portable toilet, although not ideal, may be a great option for you. Talking to your choice of contractor, before the build begins should give you a good understanding of the time taken to renovate, as well as any issues with using the ablutions.

In the best case scenario, the water may only be off for a day allowing you to use your bathroom between the busy days.

Think about your bathrooms user experience

Ensuring the user experience still remains high should be one of the most important factors. No one likes to use a bathroom that is cramped, cluttered or simply doesn’t make sense.

Create space, bright lights and lots of storage for a better bathroom experience.


So there you have it, the three most important aspects when creating a bathroom, getting your bathroom renovated or simply upgrading to a new feel.
