Are all tattoos permanent?

About 24 percent of Americans have at least one tattoo and it’s been estimated that up to 50 percent of those people seek to have their tattoos removed. A new technology has just emerged on the market that may be worth considering if you want to get a tattoo, but don’t know if you want it forever. A new technique uses an ink that is encapsulated in microspheres, so the tattoo can then be removed easily with one laser treatment as opposed to current removal techniques such as dermabrasion, surgical excision, and laser surgery.
