President Obama did not exactly say the First Family was getting matching tattoos. However, he was on the Today Show talking about tattoos. Of the topic, Mr. Obama said if his daughters ever got a tattoo, ‘he and his wife would get matching ones in the exact same spot.’ To top it off they would parade them around on YouTube for the whole world to see. Parental embarrassment seems to be the method of dissuasion from getting tattoos; “Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.” Interesting policy! As a parent you want what’s best for your children, tattoo regret definitely tops the list of things you would never want any of your children to endure!
These things do happen though, and tattoo regret is very common. We want you to know Mr. Obama that you and your wife would not have to live with that tattoo regret also. If your daughters end up getting tattoos, Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon can help remove them! No need to get matching ones!

So you’ve jumped right into treatments for laser tattoo removal. Congrats! But, Have you thought about healthy habits to increase the success of your tattoo removal? There are healthy habits you should consider for laser tattoo removal before and after, and even during treatments. Delete Tattoo Removal has compiled 5 healthy habits to help speed up the tattoo removal process. But first, we want to highlight how smoking can reduce your chance of successfully removing your tattoo. The journal, The Archives of Dermatology, published an article showing that smoking increases the difficulty of tattoo removal. The research was conducted at a laser-surgery center in Milan, Italy. How much does smoking really determine successful laser tattoo removal? According to the study, the success of removing a tattoo after 10 treatments is reduced by 70% if you smoke! Kick butt in your tattoo removal and put that cigarette butt out!
In addition to smoking there are 4 more healthy habits topping the list:
1) Sleep at least eight hours a night
2) Eat a balanced diet
3) Take your vitamins
4) Be committed.
Being committed to treatment is crucial to successful tattoo removal. In that same study mentioned before, researchers also found that it was harder to remove tattoos if treatments were not at intervals of 8 weeks or less! Notice the word intervals, standard laser tattoo removal can take between 8 - 12 tattoo removal treatments depending on the size, colors, age, and state of your tattoo. The best advice for successful laser tattoo removal that Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon can give you: Live a healthy lifestyle! The healthier your immune system, the more successful your tattoo removal will be!
Gone are the days of the Chinese character tattoo fad. Apparently, the new trend for tattoos are “QR” code tats. QR code is an abbreviation for Quick Response Code. We have all seen these codes on our favorite products, so naturally they should be permanently tattooed on one’s body as well.
Be skeptical! We've all heard the horror stories of tattooing foreign languages on the body. Bob goes into the tattoo parlor and wants the Chinese character “loyalty,” but instead gets “noodle.” Just one small mistake changes the meaning of the word and the tattoo becomes meaningless. This is also true of QR codes. Just like on a product, if the code becomes obscured or damaged, it cannot be read. This means putting a lot of faith in the steady hands of your tattoo artist! If you have fallen victim to a QR code tattoo that does not scan, Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Saloon can help. Maybe you need partial removal so the code is directed to it original intent versus a plumbing add. Or maybe you have tattoo regret about the whole thing. Either way Delete Tattoo Removal can meet all your “scanning” needs!

Thinking of getting a temporary tattoo? Think again! Temporary tattoos seem like a good compromise to the real deal. However, certain temporary tattoos can cause permanent damage. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning people to watch out.
The FDA's warning concerns temporary tattoos that are made with "black henna" ink containing para-phenylenediamine (PPD). People who have gotten this temporary ink have experienced extreme side effects including, “redness, blisters, raised red weeping lesions, loss of pigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and even permanent scarring.” What you thought was going to be temporary turns into tattoo regret.
So what is "black henna"? Apparently, “black henna” is actually a coal-tar product that is approved for use in hair dye. The FDA does have temporary tattoo regulations, “Henna, is a coloring made from a plant, and approved only for use as a hair dye. It is not approved for direct application to the skin, as in the body-decorating process known as mehndi. This unapproved use of a color additive makes these products adulterated and therefore illegal.” The photos below show how damaging "black henna" can be.
Skin Damage From Black Henna
So, if you are going to undergo the “temporary” process make sure that the vendor is not using a product that has para-phenylenediamine (PPD) or other color additives. You could find yourself undergoing temporary tattoo removal. Cosmetics, including temporary skin-staining products that are sold on a retail basis to consumers must have their ingredients listed on the label. Without such an ingredient declaration, they are considered misbranded and are illegal in interstate commerce.

You can learn more about temporary tattoos on the FDA’S website. At Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon we take your tattoos very seriously, permanent or temporary. There is a lot to consider in getting a tattoo even if it is temporary. Make sure you do your research before getting any ink!

Delete Tattoo Removal and Laser Salon would like to wish all of you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. We have a special treat to jumpstart your St. Paddy’s day weekend! Just click play on the video below.
If you’re looking to increase your luck this St. Patrick’s day you might be partaking in some of the following traditions:
Searching for a lucky leprechaun
You already have luck on your side having witnessed a lucky leprechaun do the Harlem Shake. But do you know the symbolism of the leprechaun? The leprechaun is Ireland's national fairy and is best known for guarding the fairy treasure.
Looking for a four leaf clover
Although clovers most often have three leaves, four-leaf clovers do exist. It is believed that each leaf of a four-leaf clover represents something different: first is hope, the second is faith, the third is love, and the fourth is happiness.
Drinking a pint of Guinness or having a green beer
Green beer is more of an American tradition, but it is still fun! If you can’t make it to an Irish pub make your own green beer!
What is a good beer without the proper meal to accompany it? Enjoy a hearty dish like corned beef and cabbage or Shepherd's Pie.
Avoid getting pinched and wear something green! The color green is said to symbolize a few things – the green in the Irish flag, the country’s nickname “The Emerald Isle,” and the clovers St. Patrick used in his teachings.
Whatever you do this St. Patrick’s Day, Delete Tattoo Removal and Laser Salon, would like to leave you with this Irish Blessing: May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go!
