One of the important aspects to consider prior to opting for colour tattoo removal services is your expectations. Whilst we work with powerful lasers to remove coloured ink from your skin, it’s not a magic wand and it’s not something that will disappear overnight. Colour tattoo removal works gradually, and depending on the size and the specific colours requiring removal, it can take a number of sessions for your tattoo to completely fade over time. The laser works with your body’s natural processes to remove the ink, so it’s also important to have enough healing time between removal sessions.

The Hardest Tattoo Colours to Remove

Some people requiring laser tattoo removal for multi-coloured tattoos may have concerns about certain inks being more difficult to remove than others. Whilst this is true, rest assured that it is still possible to remove any colour ink, you can just expect it to take longer. When it comes to the coloured ink that is the hardest to remove, white ink is known to be the hardest. White ink reflects every wavelength, therefore a a combination of wavelengths is required so that the laser technician can treat it in a satisfactory way. It’s also important to target the required areas without damaging the surrounding skin. Inks such as green, blue and black are some of the easier inks to remove, and inks such as red, orange and yellow are comparably more difficult. Generally, it could take between two to four treatment sessions for a 75% clearance of coloured inks, as well as black ink.

Complete Colour Tattoo Removal

The reality of tattoo removal, whether coloured ink or black ink, is that you won’t be left as if there was never a tattoo there at all. Whilst we do our best to avoid any damage, you may find areas of your skin pigment become lightened or scarred. The key to avoid as much risk of this as possible is to make sure you get your colour tattoo removed by experienced professionals like us, as we take our time and follow strict guidelines in order to provide the best possible results.

Other Colour Tattoo Removal Options

When it comes to removing your colour tattoo, it is also worth considering a partial removal. As you can see from our previous clients, many people opt to get old tattoos lightened in order to then have a blank canvas again for new cover-up tattoos, offering you more choice for what you can get once your skin is completely healed and ready for more tattoos.
