Hi and welcome to our blog. For our first post I would like to talk about the three main questions we get asked daily.
Question #1 Does it hurt?
YES .There is no good way to sugar coat it. It does hurt. The upside is most sessions are under five minutes of laser time. I personally have been in the removal chair and know exactly how it feels. I have developed several techniques that help with the discomfort. One is knowing the client and their preferences. Some clients like to power through it all at once, and some like to do small sections at a time. Also working quickly and accurately reduces the amount of time in the chair. Another thing that clients can do is be prepared mentally and physically. Just like getting a tattoo you want to be rested, hydrated, fed, and mentally motivated. Making sure your health is in tip top condition is extremely important too. If your body is trying to heal or recover from a cold or injury it is best to wait. For some super sensitive areas we do offer a topical numbing cream that can take the edge off .
Question #2 How much does it cost?
We have simplified the cost into three categories. Small $60, Medium $140, Large $200. We offer a quick and FREE consultation to determine were your tattoo falls. We charge by ink density and not necessarily by size. For example a 6×6 tattoo of full ink would fall into the large category and a 6×6 tattoo of just outline would be in the medium range. We offer discounts on packages as well as Platinum Package pricing (unlimited removal)
Question #3 How long does it take?
Average tattoo is in the 8 – 10 session range. Each session has to be spaced at least 6- 8 weeks apart. Depending on location and type of inks can plus or minus the total sessions needed. For cover ups, the typical process is to have 3 to 4 sessions and head back to your artist and ask if its light enough to work with.
Well I hope this covers some of the common questions we get, and of course give us a call anytime at 775-200-0623 if anyone has additional questions.
Thanks again for reading and see you soon.
