At Think B4 You Ink, we offer tattoo removal services and provide a range of options when it comes to both black ink and colour tattoos, including single ink tattoo and multi-coloured tattoo. Today we’re going to shine the spotlight on our colour tattoo removal services, all taking place from our Swindon tattoo studio.
Can You Remove Coloured Tattoos?
Most people will know that it is now possible to remove tattoos made from black in, but many are unsure what is possible with colour tattoos. Although it’s true that you will need to adjust your expectations that your skin will be as clear as the day you were born, you may be glad to hear that it is possible to carry out our tattoo removal services on coloured ink, including those that consist of more than one colour. Our powerful lasers are able to remove coloured pigments from your skin, but it is important to note that tattoo removal, even with black ink, is not something that will be done in a day. It takes time. The coloured pigments will fade over time, and the length of time will depend on the size and the specific colours that need removing. It will take a number of sessions for your tattoo to fade to an acceptable degree. This is because the laser works together with your body’s natural processes in order to remove the ink. This means that it is vital to leave time between the sessions so that the skin can heal. To understand the kind of results you can expect from coloured tattoo removal, you can see what some of our previous customers have experienced by viewing our gallery.
Expectations for Removal of Different Colours
Whilst it is true that laser tattoo removal for multi-coloured tattoos can be more difficult to remove for some colours than others, you will be pleased to know that it is possible to tackle all different colours of the rainbow. As stated previously, it simply means that you should adjust your expectations and know that it will take a long time until you can see satisfactory results from your removal sessions. Many customers are curious to know which colours are the hardest to remove. White ink is known to be the most difficult ink to remove as it is at the opposite side of the spectrum to black ink, reflecting every wavelength rather than absorbing it. In order to tackle white ink, it’s necessary to use a combination of wavelengths. As with every type of tattoo removal, it’s also necessary to target the required areas without damaging the surrounding skin. Red, orange and yellow inks can also be some of the more stubborn ones to remove, whilst green and blue (along with black ink) are known to be easier to remove. Typically, it will take between two to four treatment sessions to achieve a 75% clearance of coloured inks, as well as black ink.
Total Colour Tattoo Removal and Alterative Options
It is important to look at the results of tattoo removal service so you can align your expectations of the service. Tattoo removal doesn’t mean that your skin will appear as if it had never been touched. We do our best to avoid any skin damage by using lasers that only target the pigmented skin, you may find areas of your skin pigment become lightened or scarred. In order to avoid as much risk of this as possible, you should choose a quality professional service such as ours, as we take the time that is necessary and follow strict guidelines to ensure you get the best results. When it comes to removing your colour tattoo, you may also want to consider a partial removal. This option takes less time and means that once your tattoo is light enough, you can use your skin as a blank canvas once again to get a new cover-up tattoo. Once your skin has finished healing, you can book in your new tattoo.
