To Remove or Not To Remove: A Tattoo's Fate

     For thousands of years people from around the world have been marking their skin with sometimes intricate and at times simple personalized symbols.  These tailored works of art initially portrays the wearer’s inner desires, loving tributes, social memberships and various other reasons.  The word tattoo partially originates from the Tahitian word “tatau”, meaning “to mark something”.  In marking their skin, some tattoo garbed individual’s, express themselves in extremely unique ways. 
     Unfortunately, in the modern world, these unique tattoos bring with them, and the wearer, a stigma.    Society’s views on tattoo clad individuals, at times, brings the art wearers unsolicited negative views and undue suffering that results in a desire to remove their once loved skin art.  These disillusioned individuals often turn to laser tattoo removal as a resolution to their tattoo woes.  The method of laser tattoo removal proves to eliminate most if not all traces of disillusionment, remorse and social pressures.
     My opinion of the societal impact of laser tattoo removal is that if an individual feels that they no longer wish to bear the signs of the ink markings in their skin then this is an acceptable resolution.  I do however feel that a person should wholeheartedly contemplate the permanent removal of their skin art, for it will be erased ever after.  Although the ink will be removed there is not guarantee that the removal of the ink will negate the stigma felt before the erasure. 
     Although most of society feels that tattoos are taboo, the proponents stand by their artwork.  Upon expurgation of the ink, the laser removal patron may also have to face the negative social pressures from their former tattooed brethren.
