Four Things to Consider Before Getting Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are definitely a popular accessory to have. No matter whether you want ink that is personal and meaningful to you,or you simply want to fill your body with artwork that you like, you can find the right tattoo artist for you. But sometimes, we are not always in love with our tattoos forever. Perhaps you got a tattoo that you didn’t think through when you were younger and sometimes wonder what you were thinking. The good news is that tattoos do not have to be permanent, thanks to laser tattoo removal. As tattoos have increased in popularity, so has laser removal. But if you’re going to get it done, here are some important things to think about first. 

Finding a Clinic

First of all, it’s important to make sure that you are going to be having the procedure carried out by an experienced and licensed professional. Spend some time researching clinics in your area and further afield if need be – it’s always better to travel for a service that you can trust, after all! Get recommendations from people that you trust who have had a tattoo removed to find a clinic that you can rely on to care for you and get good results. You can also check out sites like, which offer services to help you remove or fade a tattoo that you no longer want. 


Another key thing to consider before you get laser tattoo removal is the suitability of your tattoo and skin. While any tattoo can be treated with laser, some can be removed more successfully than others. Generally speaking, the older your tattoo is, the easier it will be to remove. Smaller tattoos done in black ink will also be easier to remove compared to larger, more colourful designs. Book a consultation with a technician who can provide you with advice on how suitable your tattoo is for the treatment and what you can expect the results to look like. 

Removal or Fading?

If you have a tattoo that might be difficult to remove, it’s worth considering whether you actually want it to be fully removed, or whether you would be happy to cover it up with a new tattoo that you prefer. If the latter is an option for you, then it’s worth considering using laser treatment to simply fade the tattoo rather than completely remove it to make it easier for an artist to tattoo a new design to cover it. 


Laser tattoo removal is unfortunately not a quick process. You will likely need to have several laser treatments with some time in between for your skin to heal before you begin to see the results show. How many treatments you will require and the length of time that it is likely to take will depend on a number of factors such as your skin tone and the size and colour of the tattoo to be removed. Because of this, it can be time-consuming and costly, and you will need to live with a half-removed tattoo for some time, so make sure that you are ready for it. 

Laser tattoo removal is a viable option for anybody who has a tattoo that they want to get rid of, but make sure that you consider these important factors before you book your first session.
