Last week we announced some exciting news: Astanza Laser officially registered August 14 as National Tattoo Removal Day! You might be wondering what National Tattoo Removal Day is and why we chose August 14 as the founding date for this National day to recognize tattoo removal. We’ll answer both of these questions in this blog, so keep reading.
What is National Tattoo Removal Day?
National Tattoo Removal Day is a day that celebrates laser tattoo removal and the many advancements in laser technology that have made the removal of unwanted ink safe and effective. It also supports all of the individuals that have contemplated or hesitated to have a tattoo lasered off and urges them to move forward with the procedure. Lastly, National Tattoo Removal Day recognizes the expertly trained laser technicians, tattoo shops, physicians, and other laser tattoo removal providers for their hard work and passion for laser tattoo removal.Why August 14?
While its no surprise that a national day exists for almost anything (like National Lost Sock Memorial Day, National Lima Bean Respect Day, and National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day), it was a big surprise to us that a National Tattoo Removal Day didn’t exist. Before we could register this National day, we had to think of the perfect date. Here’s why we chose August 14 as National Tattoo Removal Day:
- It’s one month after National Tattoo Day which is July 17. While we love body art expression, not all tattoos turn out as expected and not all wearers identify with their ink later down the road. If you got a tattoo to celebrate National Tattoo Day but ended up not liking it, one month is the perfect amount of time to wait before booking a laser tattoo removal treatment. New tattoo removal patients must wait at least 4 to 6 weeks after getting a tattoo to schedule a tattoo removal treatment. This waiting period gives your skin enough time to heal before undergoing laser treatment.
- National Tattoo Removal Day is six months prior to Valentine’s Day, the beloved February 14 holiday. One of the most popular tattoos that are removed are names of ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-lovers, etc. Six months (four treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart) is typically how long it takes to remove a small, basic, non-professional, black ink name tattoo.
We are just a day away from celebrating the first ever National Tattoo Removal Day and we hope you join in on the festivities.
