Mark Wahlberg Takes His Children to Laser Tattoo Removal Sessions to Teach Them a Lesson

Mark Wahlberg gets an A+ in parenting when he took his children to his tattoo removal appointment to show them the downsides of getting a tattoo removed by laser. Wahlberg stated that his tattoos “have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional. I don’t want my kids getting tattoos. And I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did The Fighter because putting makeup on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt. I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.’”

Although laser tattoo removal isn’t excruciatingly painful, it is an uncomfortable process. However, it’s one of the most effective and fastest ways of removing unwanted tattoos. Laser tattoo removal works by using the most advanced cosmetic laser technology, aiming the laser energy toward the pigment on the skin. The energy is absorbed into the tattoo’s pigment, which then allows it to break into microscopic, fractionalized pieces. Once this step is complete, these pieces are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Over 4-8 treatments, the tattoo gradually fades and disappears.

A recent study by The Patient’s Guide® reported that laser tattoo removal treatments increased 32% from 2011 to 2012. People seek out laser tattoo removal for a number of reasons. Like Walhberg, they could be tired of covered their tattoos up with makeup for their career. Other people, like Chris Brown, remove old tattoos of their ex-lover’s name, erasing a past memory in order to start fresh. Whatever the reason, more people are resorting to tattoo removal treatments than creams or gels.
