Scarborough, Maine (PRWEB) November 28, 2007
The tattoo is more popular than ever. According to a recent Pew Research Center* poll, 36% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 25 have a tattoo and 40 percent of Americans between 26 and 40 have a tattoo. With so many people getting tattoos, it is not surprising that some have regrets.
According to a Harris Interactive** poll, 17% regret getting their tattoo. The main reason is that their tattoo includes people's names. The poll points out that Republicans and people from the South have the highest incident of regret.
Bernard Williman, VP at Wrecking Balm mentions that "the warning we all hear is to make sure you are certain you want a tattoo, once you get one, it's yours for life". He goes on to say "we've all heard the warning. But, it is now just an urban myth. Tattoos are no longer permanent".
His company's Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade Systemis not the only tattoo removal process but compared to laser tattoo removal it is an inexpensive and less painful option. This tattoo fading system can be purchased without subscription and can be used at home.
According to Bernard, not everyone that wants to get rid of their tattoo is done with tattoos altogether. "Many of the people using Wrecking Balm intend to get another, better, tattoo on top of the old one. Wrecking Balm is used to fade the tattoo until the area is ready for a new tattoo".
This is not surprising since the popularity of tattoos continues to grow.
The A&E Network produced a show called "Inked" in 2005 that featured tattoo artists "Hart and Huntington". The Discovery Channel has two shows on tattoos; one is Miami Ink with tattoo parlor "305 Ink" owners Ami James and Chris Nunez. The other is a spin off called L.A. Ink which began after one of 305 Ink's employees, Kat Von D, began her own tattoo parlor named "High Voltage Tattoo". These shows have become the Discovery Channels highest rated and most watched shows of 2007.
For the upcoming Holiday Season, Wrecking Balm is becoming an unexpected gift item. Bernard mentions that it is mostly parents, husbands or wives giving Wrecking Balm to their loved ones. "I guess if you're married to someone who has someone else's name tattooed on their body, this gift makes a lot of sense".
