What is the best way to remove a tattoo?

Unwanted body ink is a common dillemna. That permanent art seemed like such a great idea at the time! Now you just want to get rid of your tattoo.
The absolute best way to remove a tattoo is with a laser. The appropriate laser will nicely remove most tattoos. Laser tattoo removal has the smallest risk for scarring compared to other methods like scraping or incisional removal.
Q-switched lasers are the gold standard for laser tattoo removal. For tough to remove colors like green or blue, look for a Ruby laser.
A laser tattoo removal treatment only takes a few minutes, but several treatments are usually the rule. These laser treatments should be about 8 weeks apart. As the laser breaks down your tattoo ink, your body will remove these particles. Over time, the tattoo is gone!
