Instant gratification is the name of the game in our culture these days. And while not all tattoos are done in one sitting, if you talk to any tattooist he or she will tell you that most people simply pick something from a flash sheet and an hour or two later walk out with a brand new tattoo. Maybe this is why there’s an expectation of quickness the second time around when later that same person wants to get the tattoo removed? Either way, it doesn’t matter because tattoo removal is not a quick process!
This is one of the biggest issues people run into when using a tattoo removal cream for removing tattoos. They will find a good sales pitch online for why they should buy this or that product, and when they get it in the mail, they start applying it, day after day, and then find themselves frustrated with the results. “Why is my tattoo still here? Is this product really doing anything?”, they’ll wonder.
The worst aspect of this issue is that often are spending $100 on a one months supply of a popular cream such as Tattoo Be Gone or Wrecking Balm, the person will get frustrated over the lack of quick results and not buy any more of the product, thinking it doesn’t work. So now they’ve literally just thrown $100 down the drain!
The key to using a product like tattoo removal creams is patience. It’s best to go into it with the idea that you’ll be applying the gel or cream for 3-4 months before you’ll see any significant results as far as fading then tattoo. It is often not until 6 or 7 months that most people are satisfied with the results of their tattoo fading. Giving up before then practically ensures failure or frustration since the person isn’t giving the product enough time to do its work to fade the tattoo ink from the epidermis.
Tattoo removal creams can certainly fade most tattoos – just don’t fall into the trap of thinking it happens in a week or even a month.
