If you’ve heard anything about tattoo removal, it’s most likely that it’s excruciatingly unpleasant, maybe even more so than obtaining the tattoo in the first place.

Tattoos do not just go away after a single laser treatment. On average, tattoo removal takes at least two and a half years.

This helps your body in breaking down as much of the tattoo as possible, on top of also allowing your body to recover completely before the following session.
