Not all great loves last forever; teenage tattoo choices included. Tribal patterns, butterfly designs and even your boyfriend/girlfriend’s name were all popular contenders in the ranking of cool tattoos to get in the early naughties. However, people move on and having a lasting memory of your ex, who turned out to be not so great, isn’t always something you want a reminder of.
Luckily, technology has developed, and you can now erase any regrettable decisions you made when you were younger. There's a lot of information out there about tattoo removal, not all true and finding out the real facts can often be a confusing process. Also, different machines can have different effects. We use the Spectra XT laser by Lutronic which is one of the most effective tattoo removal lasers on the market to make sure we give our clients the best possible outcome from each treatment.
the real facts?
Here's some of the real facts about this process which should help you decide whether to keep a tattoo or not.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Dependent on the detail and colours of the tattoo it can be anywhere between 6 and 10 sessions, 6 to 8 weeks apart.
Slow but really effective removal of tattoo ink. You should start to notice a difference from the very first treatment.
To be honest, this treatment can be quite painful at times and different colours can cause varying levels of pain. Do not fear though, we use numbing cream before hand and a cooling machine during the removal to make you as comfortable as possible!
You must keep the area clean and dry for the first couple of days post treatment. You will leave the studio with a plaster and pigment supressing cream. We also recommend all our clients purchase a package of Healite Yellow LED; a super effective way to reduce immediate inflammation and help the healing process.

If you are interested in having your tattoo removed, you will need to come in for a complimentary patch test. One of our tribe will check your tattoo for suitability and perform a patch test to ensure the correct energy setting is selected for you. This will need to be done at least 48 hours prior to your first treatment.
