Can a fresh tattoo be removed?
The short answer is yes - a fresh tattoo can be removed.
Our experts recommend waiting until your tattoo has completely healed which can take around six to eight weeks after having the tattoo before you start your removal sessions. This will help avoid damage to your skin.
How long does it take to remove fresh tattoo ink from skin?
The time it takes to remove your fresh tattoo will depend on the size, colour of the ink as well as your skin type.
Black ink tattoos are the easiest to remove, whilst older technologies have found coloured tattoos tend to be more difficult. However, our LightSense Laser System is the only system in the world using a 800nm wavelength laser which is superior at removing coloured ink. Extra care also needs to be taken when it comes to darker skin, so that pigmentation doesn’t occur.
Why would I have a fresh tattoo removed?
Just because you haven’t had your tattoo for very long doesn’t mean you need to stick with it. We wouldn't berate ourselves for returning a piece of clothing we decided we didn’t like, so there’s no reason to feel shame about wanting to remove a recent tattoo.
We believe that our chosen body art tells our story, which is why it’s incredibly important that you are happy with how it looks. At NAAMA we want to change the perception that a tattoo is for life and to take away the fear and regret often associated with tattoo removal. Instead we want to empower you to embrace your personal evolution and promote body positivity, no matter how old your ink is.
More frequent treatments means quicker tattoo removal results and you can expect full removal in months not years.
How to remove fresh tattoo ink from skin
The safest way to quickly remove a tattoo is by laser therapy. Our revolutionary LightSense laser system is a unique and innovative option, using ultra-fast and physician-approved pulse speeds to quickly and safely break down ink pigments.
Quicker, gentler, and more precise than anything else on the market, this unparalleled technology has been used to remove fresh tattoos from countless clients.
One recent example involved tattoo enthusiast Carl, who didn’t like his Buddha-head chest tattoo and decided to have it removed after only a couple of months. Talking about his experience at NAAMA, Carl said:
“It wasn’t the actual work of the tattoo, I just didn’t like it. The ink was also giving me adverse effects and a rash. I’ve had tattoos for more than twenty years, and so I’ve experienced the different types of laser removals out there, and each of them have been damaging and aggressive, particularly to black and brown skin. NAAMA studios is none of those things, it’s actually a dream. Five treatments and it’s gone, I’m still amazed.”
