Tattoos used to be permanent, but lasers can only fade them. Lasers have made it easier to lighten tattoos, but it’s not as easy or as reliable as many people think. Lightening a tattoo generally takes several treatments and can be expensive. How well it works depends on the tattoo. Many tattoos can be lightened until they are much less noticeable, but usually a trace of the tattoo remains.
Also, some tattoo colors are harder to remove than others. Laser treatments can turn some tattoos darker instead of lighter, or change them to a different color. The same goes for “permanent makeup,” which is a kind of tattoo. It depends on what ingredients went into the tattoo ink to produce the color.
To be honest it all depends which country you live in. If you come under a certain category like depressed or if something happened like the tattoo went wrong or if it healed bad then we can get tattoos removed for free on the NHS but im sure that in America that it can be expensive as you need to pay for every session that you go to and it can take 2/3/4 or even more sessions to get rid of the tattoo depending on the size of it. go to your doctor they might have advice for you or even ask a local tatoo parlour as they might know a clinic or some place that will do it and they will know how many sessioins you will need by looking at the tattoo.
The costs of tattoo removal, primarily depends upon the type of procedure. Unfortunately, in any case, the costs of having a tattoo removed are a lot more than the costs of getting the tattoo. Costs can vary depending upon the size of the tattoo. For laser removal, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, treatment varies from $100 for a small, single-color tattoo with removal in one to two sessions to $500 per treatment to remove larger, multicolored body art in as many as eight visits. And these costs are per session. Costs also vary depending on whether anesthesia is used or not, the geographic location of the procedure, and other associated costs.
