How Long Does Tattoo Removal Take?

That arm sleeve of tats seemed like a great idea when you were young and definitely going to make it as a rock star no matter what your mother said. Fifteen years later, you’re getting tired of wearing long sleeves to the office every day and sweaters whenever you have dinner with the in-laws.

Your life has changed. It’s easy enough to pack up your drum set, shave off the Mohawk and box up that leather jacket that drove the girls crazy. It’s a little harder to get your skin back, but not impossible.

At North Houston Laser Tattoo Removal, we specialize in wiping away the past and giving you a new start with your skin.

One of the most common questions we get from customers is, “how long does tattoo removal take?”

The answer depends on a number of factors, but in most cases it will require more than one treatment. The size of your tattoo, its age, and the amount of ink used will all affect how many treatments you’ll need. Obviously, smaller tattoos come off easier, as do simple line drawings that are not filled in with color.

To give you a sense, a black lettered tattoo will usually take around five treatments to remove. Larger tattoos, such as an arm sleeve may take up to fifteen treatments to remove. Warm colors like reds, oranges and yellows are easier to remove than cool colors like blues, purples and blacks, so that will also affect the number of treatments you’ll need.

If you want a more accurate estimate of how many sessions it will take to remove your tattoo, it’s best to stop by our shop so that we can take a look. Once we see your tattoo, we’ll be able to give you a relatively accurate assessment of how many treatments it will take to remove
