Professional tattoos – ‘Professional’ tattoos are the most common ones and the hardest to remove, these tattoos are the ones people often get from a tattooist and the difficult presents itself when there are multiple colours within the tattoo.

Medical tattoos – Medical tattoos are when tattoos are deliberately made for medical reasons such as before cancer radiotherapy.

Cosmetic tattoos – Some women prefer to have permanent makeup to define their eye or lip lines. Some balding men would prefer having black ink tattooed into the scalp to hide the baldness. These cosmetic tattoos are quite commonly performed by tattoo and beauty therapists.

Traumatic tattoos – Traumatic tattoos are undesirable tattoos caused by different foreign bodies such as fireworks’ particles, sand, metals, glass, gunpowder, asphalt, dust, or petroleum products embedded forcefully in the dermis, they can be a result of incidents such as road accidents or explosions.


Laser tattoo removal is a generally safe procedure, however some possible risks include:

  • the tattoo not completely fading as some ink colours, such as yellow, green and purple, require more sessions to treat
  • your skin may temporarily become darker or paler
  • there is a slight chance of scarring

It can take multiple sessions to remove your tattoo, averaging between 6-8 treatments which are spaced out in 6-8 week intervals.
