General Info

We can REFER you for laser tattoo reduction, lightening and partial removal of tattoos. An example of partial removal would be removing a name inside of a banner tattoo without disturbing the surrounding tattoo. Many tattoo artists recommend that clients lighten existing tattoos before they apply a professional cover-up tattoo. Otherwise, the old tattoo can gradually become more and more visible (bleed thru like paint over wallpaper) under your new cover-up tattoo. Although any tattoo can be covered with solid black ink, the lighter your tattoo is before cover up, the more flexibility and choices of color your artist will have.

We also recommend tattoo Names or Words be “distressed” before laser reduction. That means a few lines of tattoo ink are ADDED by your tattoo artist so the Name or Word you want obliterated in no longer readable and no longer has any meaning. Now it’s just a set of lines or symbols. Then, we can begin the laser tattoo reduction process AFTER your Name or Word is not readable from day one. Please consider this option for your tattoo reduction process if it is the meaning or words you want gone.
