Are you certain that you'll have no ragrets about this decision? Tattooing is permanent unless you want to undergo expensive laser treatments.
Just to be safe, it may be worth getting yourself inked in a new type of disappearing ink. A company called Ephemeral has developed ink that breaks down after a year. Developer Anthony Lam explained to TechCrunch how it works:
“Tattoo inks today are permanent because of the fact that the dye molecules are too big for your body’s immune system to take away,” explains co-founder Anthony Lam. “By using smaller molecules, we’ve encapsulated them inside this spherical structure that’s big enough that your immune system doesn’t take it away. But when you remove it, it essentially eats away one of the components and the dye molecules are flushed out.”
The company is currently testing the ink on pigs to make sure that it works. It hopes to price the ink at $50-100 for an average sized tattoo.
