Welcome to My Tattoo Removal
So you hate your tattoo, right? You really wish that you could turn back time and get rid of it, but you are worried about the process?
Let me talk you through it. Basically, we chat with you and talk about your tattoo, how old it is, discussing the colours and time we expect it to take to remove as well as any concerns, questions etc.
We take a photo of it, so we can then have a ‘before’ shot for you so we can track your progress.
When we are performing the removal, it is usually over fairly quickly (obviously, bigger tattoos take longer than smaller ones). So most people ask: Does it hurt? Yes and no. It depends where the tattoo is. Some areas on the body hurt more than others (like bony areas – ankles, lower spine etc) but it mainly feels like a flicking sensation.
After we are finished, we ice the area because that is when the body’s reaction will kick in to the removal. It can swell, and feel quite hot. Don’t worry, this is temporary. We will apply the appropriate medicated powder to the area to ensure that the tattoo stays sterile and free from infection. We then apply a bandage which you will need to keep on for 24 hours.
