A statistical research on the number of people who take on tattoos and later remove them has been published. The report says that more and more women are inclined to remove their tattoos as they enter their mid life age. Common reasons include self awareness, difficult in choice of clothes, ‘maturity’ etc.
According to the report, most people get tattoos at the tender age of 18, most just to prove their adulthood to their peers, others due to peer pressure and others to have a sense of belonging. However, on closing in on their thirties, more women than men seek tattoo removal treatments.
At one point, some people just get bored with the art on their body, or may be it might be provocative especially if the bearer is a parent and thus a role model in the society. Moreover, women who might tattoos on their backs, arms, legs, etc might also find it hard to purchase clothes that will cover their the art and might feel out of fashion if they have to fully cover their entire bodies especially during summer; some jobs now require that employees cover any tattoos that they might have.
After undergoing the the skillful and painful needle of a tattooist, two in three people seeking tattoo removal are more likely to be women, notes the report.
