Fall (or winter) is perfect to start your tattoo removal
Here in New York, we’re in that weird in-between time where it’s not quite fall, but it’s not quite summer either. That means it’s the perfect moment to start making your plans for the fall season.
You’ve been thinking about getting a tattoo removal for a while now. Or maybe you’ve started but still need to finish.

What can you do?
Tattoo removal takes time. And there are no guarantees on how long it will take.
The good news is there are things you can do to make the process go faster and smoother.
Put simply - the healthier you are, the faster your tattoo removal process will go.
Your body heals during the tattoo removal process. The healthier you are, the better your body is functioning, and it will process the healing more efficiently.
How many sessions?
You have a lot of questions when you’re planning your tattoo removal. One thing you want to know is “how long will this take?”
The timing of your tattoo removal can be important, especially if you’re planning a removal for a special event, such as a wedding or future job.
That’s why it’s good to get the clearest, most straightforward answer possible.
Everyone is different
First of all, no...
Suni Lee was a member of our awesome gymnastics team and took home the bronze in the individual uneven bars. She joined the all-around champions club...and the tattoo club!
Here she is with her brand new Olympic rings tattoo. Congrats Suni!
I’m old school.
I remember growing up watching the Olympics, rooting for Team America and all my favorite athletes.
I remember Carl Lewis, Michael Phelps, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and all the rest.
Tattoo frosting means the removal process is working
If you've just started laser removal, then you may notice a white residue on your skin in the same area of the removal.
If this happens, there's no need to worry. Here's why.
During the laser removal process, a laser moves over your skin and heats the ink in the layer underneath the surface. This breaks up the particles of ink, which lets your body flush them out of your system.
When these ink particles are broken up, it releases...
Get rid of heavy metals
If you've recently started laser treatment for a tattoo removal, you may have noticed that your tattoo appears darker.
This happens and it's perfectly normal. There's no reason to be alarmed.
In fact, it's actually a part of the removal process and shows that it's working.
How laser removal works
Laser removal works by breaking down the ink in your tattoo. Ink with white pigmentation turns darker during this process. This can...
It depends on what that means
I remember the first time someone asked me if a hot dog was a sandwich. At the time I thought it was a dumb question…
Until it kept me up all night.
Now, maybe I’m just dumb, but I think it all comes down to how you define things. So, if you don’t mind, read the title of this post one more time.
Did Zayn Malik get a face tattoo?
I think it’s a philosophical question, not just a factual question.
Is tattoo removal painful? If so, how much?
If you’re thinking about tattoo removal, then you have questions.
You’re probably wondering “does it hurt?”
You want the truth.
Well... it doesn't feel like puppies licking the skin.
And most clients agree that the tattoo removal session does in fact hurt.
However, the experience isn’t that long (typically less than a couple of minutes) and is definitely tolerable.
What is tattoo blowout?
Tattoo blowout happens when ink from a tattoo bleeds out into surrounding areas of skin. Blowout makes your tattoo look blurry and smudged.
It’s frustrating, for obvious reasons.
What causes it?
The main cause is the tattoo artist, unfortunately.
Tattoo blowout happens when the artist presses the needle too deeply into the skin, which causes ink to be injected deeper, below the surface level of the skin....
Can you go swimming after tattoo removal?
After your laser treatment, you’re ready to get back to normal. How soon can you take a shower or go swimming?
Hot tub? Yes, please.
Wait, can you?
Watch for infection
The good news is that life can return pretty much to normal very soon after tattoo removal. We just suggest waiting 3-5 days before hopping in the pool or taking a really hot shower.
Swimming or any other type of water based...
Recently Britney Spears posted a selfie of her bare back on Instagram. And, since this is the internet...everybody lost their mind.
This sparked a million comments and questions online about whether or not Britney had her back tattoos removed. For example, Britney recently revealed that she has the Hebrew word for “healing” tattooed on her neck, and it’s known that she has others as well.
If you’re interested in what those are, we’re sure...
Can you start or continue laser tattoo removal in the summer?
The answer is yes.
Summer is a great time to start thinking about tattoo removal or to continue a removal that you’ve started in the past. The change in wardrobe might even remind you of something you’ve been putting off.
It’s a great time to take action on those plans right now.
Sun and skin
However, summer does bring different concerns, mainly sun exposure and how this affects...
