Tattoos are no longer considered permanent and irreversible designs or marks on the skin.
A variety of social, cultural and physical life changes influence the decision to remove tattoos: allergic reactions, regrets about the decision, seeking or obtaining new employment, replacing one tattoo with another one (cover up).
Treatment with the laser varies from client to client depending on the age, size, and type of tattoo (amateur or professional). The colour of the client’s skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique.

Depending on the size and colour of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. Your tattoo may be faded in two to four visits for a cover up. To remove unwanted tattoo it may take as many as 10 or more sessions. You should schedule a consultation with our fully trained and certified tattoo laser removal technicians at Inked Moose Tattoo Art Studio.

Up to 48 hours after treatment
- Avoid restrictive clothing or excessive friction of the treated area
- Avoid contact sports or any other activity that puts you at risk of causing trauma to the treated area
- Avoid applying creams, moisturisers, make up, perfume or body lotions to the treated area
- Avoid hot baths or getting the area wet
- Avoid heat treatments such as saunas and steam rooms as well as jacuzzis

- Wash the area gently with soap and water but do not soak
- Do not shave the treated area

- Do not lie in the sun or use a sun-bed as this activates the melanin in the skin and can lead to pigmentation marks.
If the area treated feels tender or warm
- Apply cold compresses of ice, or a pack of peas from the freezer wrapped in a clean cloth.
- Do not apply ice directly onto the skin as this can burn.
- Do not apply any creams/lotions to the area other than that recommended by your laser operator.
