People wear tattoos for different reasons and all along most people have been made to believe that they are permanent and people who have them have to live with them for the rest of their lives.

In simple terms a tattoo can be described as designs made in various parts of the body through piercing of skin. These are either done by needles or more modern equipments. There are two kinds of tattoos: permanent and nonpermanent. Permanent tattoos are called so because the indelible ink used is inserted deep into the skin pigments thereby giving it the design, color and permanency. Interestingly, it cannot be washed away with soap and water.
Some of the reasons why people remove their tattoos include change of religious status, lack of interest, broken relation and one is stuck with their old partner’s initials or a simple thing like being misspelt. This can be a little embarrassing forcing the wearer to get rid of it completely
