Tattoo Fading

Most tattoo artists are now realising the benefit of fading tattoos with laser treatment before applying new artistry over an existing tattoo. It allows them and their clients to be more creative in what they can choose, without having the restriction of having to disguise the fact that there is a tattoo underneath. The artist’s workmanship appears more professional and the ink content of the new tattoo looks more even if the time is taken to remove some of the underlying tattoo. Depending on the ink content of the existing tattoo, most tattoos are adequately faded enough for rework after only 2 or 3 treatment sessions. Graeme Tweedy 2
