Tattoo removal evolved along with tattoo insertion, but with different tools and techniques. But today the so called “permanent tattoo” can be removed partially or completely with laser treatment.
This procedure is carried out by breaking the coloured pigments with high intensity light beams. Black coloured pigments absorbs all laser wavelength and hence becomes the easiest colour to treat. Other colours are treated by selective laser which is again depended on the colour of that particular tattoo.
