It’s all about colour

The trend for highly coloured and extensive tattoo art is exciting all of us. A beautifully designed and created tattoo really makes a statement.

When it comes time to change or remove that tattoo, there are a few things you should know:

  • a Q switched laser system for tattoo removal is the gold standard
  • Black and Grey are the easiest ink colours to remove; and ND:Yag (1064nm) generally works best for these
  • Green is a new trend and the most difficult to remove, followed by light blue. The recommended treatment is with and ND:Yag or Alexandrite laser at a wavelength of 1064nm and 755nm.

Sunscreen will help maintain the colour in your new tattoo, so remember to slip, slop, slap.
