Other options

There are a number of other ways you can remove a tattoo:

Skin grafts

This is one of the newest tattoo removal methods, and it can be done for both adults and children. In particular, we recommend skin grafting if your child wants to get a larger tattoo. In contrast to skin grafts, skin grafts usually involve a procedure in which part of the old skin graft is replaced with skin from another body part, such as a forearm or a toe. This skin graft allows the skin area to heal without leaving any scarring. This allows skin damage caused during tattoo removal to heal back before the tattoo is removed.

The process of skin grafting varies based on skin type and degree of damage, and it can also be messy. Additionally, skin grafting can be highly inconvenient, so it’s important people do this only if they can see their own scar from previous tattoo removal and don’t plan on getting many more in the future.

In addition, to save time, it’s much easier to take over the skin at once by using a skin graft than, say, using a needle and thread.
