Laser Tattoo Removal Sooner Rather Than Later
Tattoo removal sooner is probably better than later because when a tattoo is still fresh, the ink has usually not completely solidified yet.
There is good laser technology that minimizes the chance of scarring. The Revlite and PicoSure are both excellent.
To be sure, see two or more board certified physicians in your area experienced in laser tattoo removal for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
( I agree with you about taking the forearm tattoo off.While tattoos are becoming more acceptable in certain occupations, many employers would not hire someone with a visible tattoo like the one you have.)

With modern lasers scarring should not be a problem.
