Surgical removal of unwanted tattoos can be undertaken in a number of ways, depending on the size, shape and site of the tattoo.

When the tattoo is relatively small, or narrow, and where there is spare skin, it can be simply cut out and sutured, leaving a line scar (sometimes in a curve, or zig-zag shape). Occasionally, this can be achieved in combination with other operations such as a tummy tuck, when the tattoo would be removed with the skin that is excised as part of the procedure.

When the tattoo is larger, other techniques may be used. These can include moving skin around in the area, or even a skin graft. The latter leaves a patch of skin and you will need to determine whether this appearance is better than that of the scar.
