Sugar Land Tattoo Removal – Dr. TATTOFF is Here!

Dr. TATTOFF’s brand new center for tattoo removal in Sugar Land, Texas opens Wednesday, March 20, 2013!

Sugar Land Tattoo Removal

This state of the art facility is located at 1935 Lakeside Plaza Dr, Sugar Land, TX 77479, 281-201-6419 in Lakeside Town Center, right across US 59 from First Colony Mall & Sugar Land Town Center. Our first tattoo removal and hair removal center in Houston opened on Westheimer Road a block from the Galleria last July, and quickly earned a reputation as the premium provider in our industry. It even garnered a spot in the Houston Press’ Best Of 2012 edition. Due to the overwhelming success of that location, we set our sights on Sugar Land and we’re thrilled to bring our premium brand of custom tattoo removal to the area!

When you make an appointment for your free consultation for laser tattoo removal at our Sugar Land clinic, you will first meet with a medical professional (typically a registered nurse or nurse practitioner) who will evaluate your tattoo using the Kirby-Desai Scale. They will then work with you to develop a customized treatment program specific to your tattoo and your body. Just like at all of our centers, when you choose to remove your tattoo at our Sugar Land location, if your require less treatments than you’ve pre-paid for then we’ll refund you the cost of any treatments you haven’t used. If you require more treatments than you’ve pre-paid for then we’ll continue to treat you for free for up to a year following your last paid treatment. That will ensure you the most complete tattoo removal possible, leaving your skin looking beautiful and ink-free. It’s all part of the Dr. TATTOFF tattoo removal guarantee and our commitment to you.

If you’re looking for tattoo removal services in the Sugar Land area, call us at 888-TATT-OFF (888-828-8633) or click here to book your free consultation today. We look forward to seeing you soon!

You Never Forget A Face (at least not a face tattoo)

Remember Kimberley Vlaeminck? She was the young lady who claimed that a tattoo artist inked 56 stars on her face while she was asleep, then later admitted to getting exactly what she wanted but coming up with the story when she came home and her father wasn’t too happy with her body art. Turns out that the tattoo artist who inked Kimberly is back in the saddle, having given his new girlfriend a huge facial tattoo within 24 hours of their first in-person meeting!

Dr. TATTOFF’s Dr. Will Kirby was interviewed by Yahoo! about what it would take to remove the tattoos …just in case this little love affair doesn’t last for eternity.

Do Your Tattoos Hurt Your Chances of Getting a Job?

According to a Salary.com survey, having visible tattoos likely has a negative effect on your chances of landing your dream job. From the article: “In a perfect world we would all be judged solely on the merit of our work. But if the 2,675 people we surveyed are any indication, there is a lot more going on when it comes to performance evaluations, raises, promotions, and making character assumptions about people based on their appearance.”

While more than three quarters of the respondents felt that visible tattoos hurt an applicant’s chances of being hired during a job interview, only 4% stated that they have been discriminated against in the workplace due to their tattoos. Perhaps unsurprisingly, younger people were considerably more accepting of tattoos in the workplace than older folks, with just 22% of 18-25 year old respondents stating that tattoos are inappropriate, while that percentage jumped to 63% for those 60 years and older.

As far as which part of the country thinks tattoos at work are inappropriate, West South Central (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana) ranked highest at a whopping 55%.

UV Tattoos and UV Tattoo Removal

As UV tattoos (aka “ultraviolet tattoos”) gain in popularity, so do inquiries about UV tattoo removal. Dr. TATTOFF’s Medical Director Dr. Will Kirby was recently interviewed about the subject for a geNYU article. While UV tattoos (which are applied with special ink that becomes visible and gives a “glowing” effect under a blacklight) are an interesting alternative to traditional tattoos, questions still remain about the safety and stability of the ink used in these types of “invisible tattoos”. Even greater safety questions arise about glow in the dark tattoos – tattoos that only show in complete darkness as opposed to under UV light.

As of this writing, Dr. TATTOFF’s Medical Director and board certified dermatologist Dr. Will Kirby does not recommend getting either a UV tattoo or glow in the dark tattoo as the safety of the inks used for this type of body art is still in question. Note that some sellers of these inks state that they are FDA approved, which is misleading. While they may be FDA approved for certain applications (such as stamping identifying marks on seafood), they are not currently FDA approved from cosmetic applications on human skin. Further, these types of tattoo inks cannot currently be removed by laser tattoo removal processes.

If you have a non-UV or glow in the dark ink tattoo that you are interested in removing, call 888-TATT-OFF (888-828-8633) or click here to book your free consultation at a Dr. TATTOFF center today. We look forward to seeing you soon!
