Will tattoo removal leave a scar?
Done correctly and followed up with proper aftercare, there should be no scarring on the skin where the tattoo was removed.
Can you revise a tattoo instead of removing it completely?
Yes. We can remove or fade part of the tattoo if you would like to have it revised or given a cover-up later by your tattoo artist. We can also revise your tattoo by selectively removing only a part of a larger piece, such as a name you no longer want in a tattoo that includes art you want to keep.
Will my cover-up tattoo take longer to erase?
Yes. Because of the amount of ink applied with the double tattoo, the length of time required to break it up and dissolve it is longer.
If I got a tattoo done outside of a professional shop, will that affect my treatment time?
Professionally-done tattoos generally take longer to erase, as the equipment used was usually more advanced.
Is older or newer ink easier to remove?
Old ink is easier to get rid of. Newer tattoos might need more sessions.
Is a red, yellow, or green color harder to remove?
Yes, these colors are generally more difficult to remove and require more treatments, and might not fully dissolve.
Can I get another tattoo on the area that the old one was removed from?
Yes, but the area must be fully healed. Eight weeks is usually the minimum time you should wait before getting a new tattoo.
