Celebrity Tattoo Removal Before & After – Getting Tattoos Removed

Celebrity Tattoo Removal Before & After – Getting Tattoos Removed

When it comes to tattoos, celebrity culture has a big impact on what’s popular and what isn’t. And while tattoos may seem like a permanent way to express yourself, sometimes celebrities decide they want them gone.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink particles in your tattoo with a laser. The laser targets the ink and shatters it into tiny pieces, which are then safely absorbed and filtered out by your body.

The number of sessions you’ll need will depend on the size, color, and location of your tattoo. Most people need at least 6-10 sessions to see significant results.

In some cases, people may decide to get another tattoo after removing their original, but many people are happy with the ability to live the rest of their life without any tattoo at all. Whichever you choose in the future, our tattoo removal procedure will generate the results you are hoping for.

Steps For Tattoo Removal

– Before undergoing the laser tattoo removal procedure, numbing cream may be applied to the skin so that you don’t feel acute pain or discomfort during the treatment. Even with the numbing cream, some discomfort can be expected.

– A handheld device is then used to apply the laser to your skin. The laser will be passed over the tattoo multiple times, and you will likely feel a burning sensation. This laser targets the ink in your tattoo and breaks the pigment up into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are then flushed by the body’s natural immune response.

– After the treatment, your skin will be red and swollen for a few hours and, like a new tattoo, will heal over the course of the following days. It’s important to keep the area clean and moisturized to help promote healing, decrease the chance of scarring, and avoid the risk of infection.

– Most people need at least 6-10 sessions to see significant results from tattoo removal. The number of sessions you’ll need will depend on the size, color, and location of your tattoo. Black ink is the easiest to target because it absorbs all of the light wavelengths, but if you are removing a colored tattoo, the technician will need to use an alternative wavelength designed to target specific colors.

Well-Known Celebrity Tattoo Removals

Here are some celebrity tattoo removal before and after shots. You can see how the tattoos have been removed — and sometimes, the results are pretty impressive!

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has many tattoos, but one didn’t make the cut: after she and Billy Bob Thornton split in 2002, she had his name removed from her arm. She has since covered the area with a new tattoo.

Megan Fox

Megan Fox sported a large portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her forearm, a tattoo she got at the age of 18, but decided to have it removed in 2011 and was quoted saying, “I’m removing it. She (Monroe) was a negative person, she was disturbed, bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

Khloe Kardashian

“I should’ve listened to Kim when she told me “you don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.” Bye-bye bumper sticker!!!” 

Khloe Kardashian had a tattoo removed from her lower back in 2015 that she got in honor of her deceased father at the age of 16.

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osborne is next on the list of celebrities who have gotten tattoos removed. In 2020, Osbourne shared that she was in the process of having the word “Lovely” removed from her wrist and a keyboard from her back.

Eva Longoria

In a more extreme move than many of the other celebrities on this list, Eva Longoria went to great lengths to have ALL of her six tattoos removed. This decision allegedly came at the request of Longoria’s then-boyfriend (now husband), Jose “Pepe” Antonio Baston.

Mike Tyson

Tyson’s face tattoo is nothing less than iconic, but this didn’t stop the former heavyweight champion of the world from saying he was planning to get it removed in 2013. Since then, the tattoo has remained intact, albeit faded, and Tyson has made no new indications that he plans to remove his ink. In fact, he recently suggested he may be in the market for new ink instead of plans for removal!

Reasons To Get Tattoos Removed

The following are just a few of the many different reasons that people decide to get tattoos removed. Whether or not the following examples resonate with you, the decision to remove or alter a tattoo is personal and entirely up to you. If you have decided to move forward with the removal process, Body Details is here to help with our proven tattoo removal service.

Tattoo Regret

Sometimes people get tattoos on a whim or when they’re young and don’t think about the long-term consequences. Later on, they may decide they want to get rid of the tattoo. While many people simply live with the shame of a bad tattoo for the rest of their lives, tattoo removal is a viable option for those who want to erase their mistakes.

Health Concerns

In some cases, tattoos can be a health hazard. For example, if you have a tattoo on your neck and you get sick, the bacteria can easily spread to your skin. Tattoo removal can help get rid of any potential health risks associated with your tattoos.

Employment Concerns

In some professions, having tattoos can be seen as unprofessional or even taboo. If you’re worried about how your tattoos might affect your career prospects, getting them removed is a good solution.

Changes in Lifestyle

A common reason for tattoo removal is a change in lifestyle. For example, someone who was once a party animal may now want to get rid of their tattoo(s) as they’ve settled down and no longer identify with that lifestyle.

Career Advances

In some cases, people have tattoos that are visible and they feel it’s holding them back in their career. Getting the tattoo removed can help them advance professionally in fields that are not as accepting of visible tattoos.


Some people simply feel embarrassed by their tattoo(s), especially if it’s located in a visible spot. They may have gotten the tattoo when they were younger and now regret it, or they may have had a change of heart about the design itself.

If you’re considering tattoo removal, it’s important to consult with a professional to see if it’s the right decision for you. The removal process is even more permanent than the tattoo that you are removing, so it’s not a decision to be made lightly. But if you’re unhappy with your tattoo(s), we are here to help!
