How will a trained professional decide the best way to remove your tattoo?

ANSWER

When you have a consultation with a trained professional, he'll evaluate your tattoo and advise you on the process. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.
