Laser tattoo removal results: After 3 sessions here’s the progress on removing this tattoo. 

Tattoo removal can be very effective and here are just a few examples of what our laser removal system can do. At Skin Design, we take great pride in the art of tattoos. Whether it be color portraits or bng, tattoo removal or cover ups, we’ve got all your needs covered.

Laser tattoo removal can be used to remove a tattoo in its entirety, or it can be used to fade an existing tattoo in order to get a better cover up. Of course, the age of your tattoo, the type of ink used, the colors of the ink used, all play a major factor in removing an old or unwanted tattoo but the professionals at Skin Design can guide you in the right direction with all the information you need.

With the cleanest and most sterile environment, Skin Design provides free consultations, which will go over the entire procedure and what to expect.

Here are some factors which will determine how fast and effective your treatments will be:

  • The color of the ink
    • Different colored inks react differently to laser removal. The easiest colors to remove are black and grey, but certain colors may need more sessions.
  • The type of ink used
    • Professional tattoos are much easer to remove than amateur tattoos and tattoos received in prison. The difference is in the ink used and we understand all ink types
  • The size of the tattoo you want to remove
    • The size of the tattoo will also determine how many sessions will be required. Obviously pain tolerance plays a key factor in the removal of tattoos.
  • Age of the tattoo
    • Older tattoos can sometimes be stubborn and much difficult to remove. This is where our certified experts can examine your skin as well as the age of the tattoo.
  • Skin type
    • Skin types definitely play an integral part in the removal process. Some skin may blister, whereas other types will heal faster. We can also examine this in person.
  • Location
    • Location of the tattoo also plays a key role in how long it will take to remove a tattoo as well as how long of a session a patient can endure due to pain tolerance.



Our  resident tattoo artist, Vandal, wanted to get an older tattoo removed so who better to do it then us. He wanted the forearm piece removed so prior to getting it done he talked it over with Anthony, the head of our laser tattoo removal program. After a few minutes of inspection and looking over the piece, the Quanta Q-switch was turned up, the goggles put on and the session began.



 Here’s a picture of the forearm tattoo to be removed. 

Keep in mind that tattoo removal requires multiple sessions. There is currently no  technology that can remove it in one session unless of course you consider cutting it out with a knife. Also, black and gray tattoos tend to be easier to remove whereas certain color work may require more sessions. We’ll be releasing a full story about which colors are easier to remove so stay tuned.

Is it painless? No. Laser Tattoo removal does come with some pain. So how does it work? It works by breaking down and “fracturing” the ink. Once it’s broken down, the ink particles become small enough to be removed by the body’s immune system. After each session, you will notice a “fading” of the tattoo and if you’re planning on a “cover up” with another piece of work then keep in mind that you don’t need to have it completely removed.

So is there a difference between removing a color or black and gray tattoo? Yes. No tattoo is alike, and the colors of your tattoo will affect the removal process. With that in mind, the simplest explanation is that darker colors are typically easier to remove, with black and blue being the easiest of the colors to remove. With more vibrant colors such as red, orange, yellow, and green the hardest. Colored inks are sometimes not possible to be fully removed even with multiple sessions.

At Skin Design Laser Tattoo Removal we use the Q-Switched laser. While others methods and machines produce scarring and pigment alterations, new advances in Q-switched laser technology help remove tattoos with minimal risk of either.

In short, there are five different types of tattoos: Professional, amateur, cosmetic, medicinal, and traumatic. Amateur tattoos typically require less treatment sessions than professional multicolored tattoos but it also depends on the type of ink used. Some tattoos received in prison are much harder to remove because of the unconventional type of “homemade” tattoos used. Other factors to consider when evaluating tattoos for removal are: location, age and the skin type of the patient.

With all this to keep in mind, come in and get free consultation from our staff of highly trained professionals. We know how to best help you erase your past.
