5 Tattoos That Are Easy to Remove (and 5 That Aren’t)

While tattoos are permanent, that doesn’t mean they can’t be removed by lasers or other treatments. However, because the ink in your tattoo sits in the dermal layer of skin (compared to the epidermal layer, which your skin has naturally), it can be trickier to remove than you might think. Here are five tattoos that are easy to remove—and five that aren’t.

1. Easiest to remove – words or letters

One of the easiest tattoos to remove is one that only consists of letters or words. Letters are also relatively easy to remove if they’re in a language that you don’t speak and for which you don’t have a translation. These can be hard or easy depending on how much meaning there is behind the words. If it’s just a phrase you saw somewhere, there’s less emotional attachment, which can make it easier to get rid of.

2. Easiest to remove – roses, daisies and other flowers

Roses, daisies and other flowers are among the easiest tattoos to remove. Laser tattoo removal works well on these types of tattoos because it targets the ink pigments in the skin without damaging the skin itself. The laser breaks down the tattoo into smaller particles and transports them out of your body through your lymphatic system. This process can take anywhere from a few months to a year or more depending on how much ink was used when you got your tattoo.

3. Easiest to remove – tribal tattoos

Tribal tattoos are one of the easiest tattoos to remove. They have a wide range of colors and can be removed with laser treatments. This is because they have a black outline so it is easier for the laser to target them. The downside is that if you get your tribal tattoo removed, it can be difficult or expensive to cover up the scars with another tattoo.
Also, people often get a tribal tattoo as a stepping stone into other tattoos, so if you only want that one removed, you may regret it later when you start getting other tattoos.

4. The 5 hardest things to get rid of

No one really wants a tattoo that they don’t want any more, but when it comes to removing them, some are easier than others. For example, black tattoos are often the easiest type of tattoo to remove because the ink is oil-based and doesn’t bond as tightly with your skin as other types of inks. Green tattoos are also relatively easy because many have a base of glycerin which can be removed with laser treatments. What makes tattoos difficult to remove depends on what kind they are, so here’s a list of the five easiest types:
1. Black tattoos
2. Green tattoos 2. Blue tattoos
4. Purple tattoos
5. Orange tattoos

5. Avoid regret by researching before you ink

If you’re considering getting a tattoo, make sure to do your research first. Start by reading the reviews of that tattoo artist or parlor. It’s also important to ask yourself whether or not you will regret this decision later on in life. Lastly, see if there are any negative connotations associated with this tattoo design. For example, many people will think twice before getting an ink based off of their favorite sports team because they don’t want people assuming that they’re unintelligent or unsophisticated just because they’re a fan.
