For anyone interested in tattoo removal options, this information comes from the experienced professionals at Bali Tattoo Removal. 

Is tattoo removal right for me?

Permanent tattoos can be a expression of who you are,  a reminder of a special time in your life or a tribute to a loved one. Sometimes getting a tattoo is a spur of the moment decision, but more often people get tattoos after spending many hours researching the best artist for the design, trolling Instagram and seeking referrals from friends. Bali is lucky to have a resource like TATTLAS with current portfolios and design galleries to help people save time on research, and save people from getting tattoos they’ll regret.

If your tattoo didn’t turn out as expected or if there’s another reason you want to remove a tattoo, that’s where we come in. Tattoos no longer need to be a permanent thing thanks to laser tattoo removal.

Tattoo removal isn’t always about erasing a mistake. Your original tattoo might not be as sharp as it once was or lacks some definition where tidying up some lines could make it pop again. In turn, you may be looking for a fresh new design/cover-up where a laser session can target specific areas like dark or bright patches to create a uniform canvas for your artist, or you could just straight up want the tattoo gone.

Whatever the reason you want to remove a part of or your entire tattoo, some unscrupulous people will try to sell you creams or abrasion techniques as a cheap and quick solution, they plainly don’t work. Cover-up tattoos are a solution for some people, but can also make things worse.

There are only two medically proven forms of tattoo removal:

  • Surgery (skin graft)
  • Laser Tattoo Removal

Any surgery possesses inherent risks (as well as being extremely painful), so for most people, laser removal at a professional tattoo removal clinic such as Bali Tattoo Removal is the safest and therefore preferred option.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

So, first things first… Lasers don’t fade your tattoo, lasers break down the ink into tiny particles which your body absorbs and processes. We at Bali Tattoo Removal use the Gold Standard ND:Yag Q-switched laser, harmlessly delivering extremely short pulses of light energy into the treatment area shattering the unwanted ink.

How many sessions does it take to remove a tattoo?

This is the first question most people ask us. There is no magic bullet (yet) that removes tattoos in one sitting, although a single treatment will assist for a cover-up, most tattoos require multiple treatments for full removal. Treatment varies with every person and depends the quality of the ink used, your original tattoo artist and your body’s ability to heal.

Once you have your treatment, the best way to accelerate your tattoo removal recovery is to keep any blisters/scabs intact during the healing process, while keeping your body in shape with regular exercise and drinking plenty of water to assist in flushing out any toxins in your body, including the tiny ink particles created in the removal process.

You can be assured we are a safe and professional clinic to begin, or continue, your tattoo removal journey.
