Tattoos fade at varying rates due to a number of factors from the color of the inks to the customers immune system and many other reasons. In this day of instant gratification and same day amazon deliveries; laser tattoo removal can be frustrating due to the length of time that it takes.

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.
