A tattoo doesn’t need to be old and faded for a patient to want it gone. This woman came to the skilled providers at Blink Tattoo Removal to eradicate a tattoo that she had done just a year ago. Her three-star forearm tattoo was so badly done that she feels she has to keep it covered by long sleeves. The experienced staff at Blink will help those stars fade. She’s come in and talked with Blink about her black and red star arm tattoo and she learned that red and black ink respond really well to the high intensity, rapid beams of the lasers used at Blink. The ink pigments are safely broken down, absorbed and flushed out by the body’s immune system. This patient will be enjoying a new look this summer thanks to laser therapy and Blink Tattoo Removal.
How long have you had your tattoo?
I just had this tattoo done last year, but I’m more than ready to have it taken off. I shouldn’t have had it done in the first place. Hind sight, it’s always 20/20 isn’t it?
Why are you seeking treatment at this time?
I had this multi-colored tattoo done on my inner forearm in June of 2010. When I left the tattoo studio I had this awful feeling that it was really poorly done; by the time it had healed up I knew I was right.
What is your goal at Blink Tattoo Removal?
Seeing the end of this tattoo is my goal. I want this ink removed completely from my arm.
Do you have any upcoming engagements prompting you to want your tattoo removed?
I don’t have a definite upcoming commitment but I plan to keep my arm covered until this tattoo is either very faded or gone, which means I need to get started so that it’s faded before summer arrives.
What is your tattoo of?
I have three connected stars tattooed on my inner left forearm, about four inches up from my wrist.
What color inks were used in your tattoo?
The star tattoo on my inner forearm only has two colors of ink, red and black. The two outer stars are outlined in black and highlighted in red; the center star is outlined in black, with red highlights.
Do you have any additional comments or questions?
I received a laser tattoo removal treatment 6 yrs ago by a Q-Switched type laser & when I came in today I wanted to know what type of laser is used at Blink, and if the laser treatments here are the most advanced. I had all my questions answered. Thanks!
How much was the total removal treatment estimate?
The staff here at Blink evaluated my tattoo and told me that it will cost $1800 to completely get rid of the red and black ink used in my star arm tattoo.
How much was the per treatment cost estimate?
I was told that I’ll need twelve treatments in all and they’ll cost $150 per laser treatment session. Blink does one treatment about every four to eight weeks, so the area is completely healed between sessions. That makes it really affordable for me, personally.
