How The Missing Ink laser tattoo removal started
We thought it might be interesting to give you a bit of background about our business and how it came about, back in 2014.
As with many other small businesses, The Missing Ink started with a desire to make a living, and to help people feel better about themselves.
We’d always admired the skill and creativity of exceptional tattoo artists, and appreciated how a beautiful, well thought-out inking could really make a positive difference to how people felt about themselves.
Tattoos were for life before laser treatment became mainstream and more affordable.
After lots of research it became clear that a significant proportion of the population had tattoos that they regretted, and wanted to get removed altogether, or faded down to make way for new tattoos.
We started researching the industry and identified a gap in the market where we thought we could fit in. Unlike other clinics and tattooists, we wanted to just focus on lasering tattoos and become the best at what we did. It was a bit of a gamble because we were narrowing our potential market, but tattoos were growing in popularity and more tattooists were opening locally.
A big part of our investigation recognised the negative psychological impact that a tattoo can have on mental health. Over the years we’ve treated clients who have been severely affected by their tattoos, and there is no better feeling than when a client gets to the end of treatment and they tell you that you’ve changed their life!
That in a nutshell is why we absolutely love what we do!
