Laser Tattoo Removal for a tattoo cover up

Laser tattoo removal for a tattoo cover up has become very common of late. Instead of looking for complete removal, are you looking at just fading a tattoo?

Times change, fashion changes, mindsets change. The tattoo you once loved, might need changing itself.

Often people want to look at fading a tattoo so they can cover it up with a new one. So if you want a tattoo cover up, then you should consider getting a few tattoo removal treatments to get it a few shades lighter.

How many tattoo removal treatments will you need?

Laser tattoo removal can take between 6-10 treatments to completely remove. However everyone reacts to tattoo removal differently. Some people may need less treatments and some people may need more.

All this is dependent on a 8 different variables:

⭐Tattoo colour, ⭐Skin Tone, ⭐Layering of tattoos ⭐Tattoo Location ⭐Health ⭐Amount of ink, ⭐Age of tattoo ⭐Professional or Amateur. We dig a little deeper into this here.

A new tattoo?

If you are looking to cover up an existing tattoo and are interested in just fading a tattoo, you might not need as many treatments compared to complete removal. The number of laser tattoo removal treatments needed for a cover up is dependent on the above variables.

We suggest speaking to your tattoo artist. They will be able to tell you how much they need your tattoo faded.

It’s important to maintain great skin care and avoid scarring. So we recommend waiting for a minimum of 6 weeks from your last laser tattoo removal treatment before getting your new tattoo. If you can be patient, waiting even longer will be very beneficial for you. Because by then your skin will be healed and the body will have eliminated as much ink as possible.
