Can blue and green tattoos be removed?

People always wonder, can blue and green tattoos be removed? The answer is yes…..IF the right technology is used. Every tattoo is different and therefore needs the right wavelength to remove it. 

Laser tattoo removal works by directing the laser energy onto the tattooed area. The tattoo absorbs the laser light energy, which breaks the ink into tiny little particles. These particles are eliminated through the lymphatic system, the body’s natural cleansing system.

At the Goodbye Tattoos, we want only the best for you. Which is why we use the best performing laser tattoo removal machine: The Quanta Q-Plus C laser. The Quanta Q-Plus C laser tattoo removal machine is known globally, as one of the top-performing laser systems.


Because this machine features 3 different wavelengths: 1064 nm, 532 nm and 694 nm

1064 nm – Black and darker tattoos

The most common tattoo colours we see are black and dark tattoos. For these, we use a wavelength of 1064 nm, which is ideal and very effective for removing these colours. 

532 nm – Red and warmer tones

The next common colours we see are warmer tones like reds, oranges, yellows and browns. For these colours we use the 532 nm.

694 nm – Ruby laser – Blue and green tattoos

The wavelength used for blue and green inks is called the Ruby laser. The Ruby laser has a wavelength of 694 nm. So yes, blue and green tattoos can be removed. However, it’s important to remember that coloured tattoos can take a little longer to remove than black or darker inked tattoos.

Number of sessions

On average, it takes between 6-10 treatments to remove a tattoo. But this depends on a range of variables; tattoo colour, skin tone, layering of tattoos, tattoo location on the body, health of individual, amount of ink and even age of the tattoo.
