Yes tattoos will stay when you die they are in fact part of your skin. If your family wanted it removed they could do that though

Actually, tattoos will stay on your skin until your skin decomposes, or is cremated. The tattoo is actually on the dermis (middle layer) of skin.

However if you do regret getting it, it can be removed with laser. However only black ink not colored...

The only colour that cannot be removed via laser is white due to the metallic quality of the ink. Reds and greens etc have been successfully removed via lasers.

Also I know not of any mortuary or funeral home that would remove tattoos from a deceased person, the process would take too long and cost too much

Do tattoos stay on the bone after decomposition?

No. Tattoos are not inkied into bone, that would be horribly painful and dangerous. Theye are in you skin, not bone. The reason long-dead corpses have been found with tattoos, is because those corpses were mummified, meaning they didn't go through true decomposition and their skin remains, allowing us to see their tattoos.
