Is it better to have my tattoo removed now or later?

I got a tattoo in December 2014. I am aware that the tattoo will not age well due to thick lines and bad design. I am wondering if it is better and cheaper to remove the tattoo now instead of wait until it becomes unreadable.

Your tattoo may not fade anymore. I would recommend doing it sooner than later due to the cost. The lasers are VERY expensive and it does take multiple treatments. We use Cutera Enlighten, and it can take 4-6 average depending upon the colors, density of the tattoo and how your body pulls out the ink (lasers explode the molecules to make it easier for your body's macrophages to absorb ink). Seek a medical, office-based clinic with experienced practitioners.

Start now. To minimize expense, we recommend an integrated protocol with fewer laser treatments and more focus on enhancing your body's ability to remove lasered ink. The B.L.A.S.T. protocol is designed to teach exactly what you need to know to help your body remove the ink. The sooner you start on the journey, the sooner the removal process can begin. Waiting to begin may take a lifetime. Why live with something you don't like?
