No matter how big or small your tattoo regret, having the constant reminder of something that you would rather not see, can be frustrating.
Especially when you can see it all the time, or others remind you by asking what it is.
The most common reasons people want tattoos removed or faded are:
It was a bad decision
I was too young
It doesn’t suit me now
I don’t like the design
I want a better tattoo and want it covered
It wasn’t what I asked for in the first place

Questions & Answers
Before we answer this question, it’s important to understand that the number of treatments depends on the density of ink in the skin. Therefore this does also depend on the tattoo design, and how many times you've had it retreated. However, to give you a rought estimate, on the whole a professional tattoo will have been performed by a professional tattooist, who would have deposited a dense amount of ink. Whereas an amateur, may have deposited very small amounts, leading to the tattoo fading quicker. A guide is 6 to 12 treatments for a professional tattoo and 2 to 6 treatments for an amateur tattoo.
Unfortunately tattoo removal isn't pain free, however, we can provide you with anaesthetic cream to apply to the skin prior to treatment,
The bigger the ink particles, the more likely the tattoo is to stay in the skin. Which is why professional tattoos hang around for longer , as the volume of ink create a big surface area of ink that the body can't eliminate. Some amateur tattoos fade quickly due to the reduced surface area, allowing the body to carry the away the small particles of ink.
For the ink to break down in the skin, we need to hit the ink with a specific laser wavelength that matches the colour in the tattoo. Your practitioner will change the laser settings according to the colour of your tattoo. When the laser hits the ink, it causes a photoacoustic impact which breaks the tattoo ink into smaller particles, which your body then removes.
The cost varies according to the size of the tattoo. You can download our pricing guide, to help you measure and gain an estimate for your tattoo.
Unfortunately not everybody can have laser tattoo removal. Some conditions and people taking certain medication will be excluded from having tattoo removal treatment, to help prevent harm from occurring and causing damage to the skin. We recommend coming in for a consultation or giving us a call with your list of medication prior to booking a treatment.
Yes, we can still treat your tattoo. However, to keep your skin safe,
Side effects that we expect to happen following a treatment are: itching, tenderness, bruising, blistering, weeping and spot bleeding. We don’t expect scarring to occur, and it’s important to allow any blisters, if they occur, to heal. We don’t expect infection to occur, however as we are disrupting the skin barrier, it’s important to keep the area clean. Any unwanted side effects we would advise you to return to the clinic for advice.
We can treat all types of tattoos with a laser, from professional to amateur tattoos, which can either be treated in full or partly treated. This may be in the circumstances that you want the tattoo removed, partially changed or covered up. Traumatic tattoos can be treated for example where foreign bodies from a pencil or a graze on the skin from the road’s surface have caused a pigment in the skin. Semi permanent tattoos can also be treated, however, caution with these tattoos must be adhered to as these can often become darker before disappearing.
We won't treat radiation marker tattoos or eyebrows.
