Hairremoval with laser and tattoos


#1

Hi, I’m a tattoo-artist, and also have many tattoos al over, but unfortunatly I’m very hairy aswell and there for my art is not comming out as it should be and I hate my hair… I wax my back and other parts about twice a year, but the hair grows back quickly. There for I would like to have some laser treatments to remove my hair on my back. I wonder if anybody knows if the laser for hair also affects the tattoos? I asked somebody I know who removes tattoos and they said it is a different laser, but he wasn’t sure about it. I hope I get some advice here. Thanks in advance, K

Hmm… I don’t know if it would effect the tattoo, but I doubt the laser would be very effective on those areas because it needs the skin to be lighter in color then the surrounding hair.
