Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal Services

I’m a fully trained and qualified Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist and Body Piercer.

I can offer a solution for those of you that have any unloved tattoos that your regret. The treatments will make the old tattoo fade away to leave clear skin or to make room for a new tattoo. I use the Q-Switch Laser, which is widely recognised by dermatologists and proven to be the most effective and safest way to remove a tattoo I am also a qualified Body Piercer, whether you want a ear piercing, nose or belly button or going down the adventurous path for tongue, dermal, nipple or genital piercings. I provide a clean and professional service that adds a new dimension to your appearance.

Thinking about Laser?

Do you have an unloved Tattoo?

I offer a personal no obligations consultation which enables me to provide you the best treatment plan for you to yield the most effective results. The treatment is SAFE and relatively painless. (Your treatment will depend on a number of factors including the size and the amount of colour within the tattoo). I utilised the Q-Switch Laser, which is widely recognised by dermatologists and is proven to be the most efficient and safest way to remove unwanted tattoos.

How does it work?

The laser works by breaking up the ink particles, so the body’s natural defences are able to absorb and flush out the shattered ink.

Is it painful?

Some have likened it to to being pinged by an elastic band, but most cope with the procedure and as each session passes, clients have said that the pain lessens. We are able to numb the area if necessary, with an over the counter cream available from most pharmacies.

How many treatments are required?

This will depend on a number of factors, including the age and density of the ink. Usually, 6-12 sessions will be necessary for a removal, although, a colour tattoo may require more. Also fading for a cover up is usually between 1-6 sessions. All laser sessions require a 5-6 week interval.


The area may feel tender and sore for a few hours. You may also experience bruising, swelling and slight bleeding. This is perfectly normal, and will clear within a week or two.
