There are five main factors, outside of the laser, that determine how fast a client will see reaction from laser tattoo removal treatment. The five factors are:  1. Your immune system, this does 95% of the removal process.  2. Your healthy, or not so healthy lifestyle.  3. Age  4. The pigments that were used in your tattoo.  5. The artist who did your tattoo.  As a specialist in laser tattoo removal, we like to say that we facilitate tattoo removal. Your body does most of the work. The healthier you are the faster you will respond to treatment. In our experience, those who:  A) exercise regularly  B) eat healthy foods  C) stay hydrated  D) don’t over indulge in alcohol  E) refrain from smoking  Will progress much more quickly between removal sessions. In a clinical publication last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that smoking effects the healing time for tattoo removal. Age is also a factor. I’m talking about the age of the client, not the age of that tattoo. Obviously, we are physically more healthy when we are younger. The age of the tattoo is almost never a factor in how quickly a tattoo will respond to laser tattoo removal treatments, what is a factor is how old the client is and how well they’ve taken care of themselves and their skin. Skin ages with time, it not only becomes more challenging to tattoo, it becomes more challenging for removals. Again, this leads back to how healthy you are, and how quickly your immune system will react to the treatments. The FDA has not traditionally regulated tattoo inks or the pigments used in them. Also, the FDA has not approved any tattoo pigments for injection into the skin. This applies to all tattoo pigments. Because of the lack of centralized standards, and with how pigments are diluted and blended during the tattoo process, there is no easy way to know how the pigment used in your tattoo will react until we start treating it. Furthermore, if you have several tattoos from the same artist, they too may fade at different rates due to the artist switching pigment manufactures between your visits. Many black inks are based off a very dark purple, however we’ve seen some fade to red after two treatments and we’ve even seen some black ink fade to a yellow / green color  Tattooing is an art not just artistry. We’re not just talking about the artwork that you end up with, but the actual application of the tattoo. Skilled artists know how to float the ink right between the dermis and the epidermis with exact precision. It’s an invasive procedure involving needles entering the skin, sometimes thousands of times. The needles used, how they are setup and the procedure itself will all play a roll in how your tattoo heals, and then how it’s removed.

Just a few weeks ago we acquired one of the most advanced tattoo removal lasers on the market today. Yes, PicoSure is now available at Tataway tattoo removal of Boston, and our PicoSure clients are thrilled with the results they are seeing.


This new tattoo removal technology allows most patients to have tattoos removed in fewer treatments with faster recovery time and better results. Basically- your tattoo will be gone faster than you may have thought possible!



PicoSure even works on normally challenging colors (green or blue) and previously-treated tattoos that may not have gotten the results you were looking for with other methods of tattoo removal.



We are so excited to be the only tattoo removal center in New England with a PicoSure laser … and we are launching it with some great promotions! First we have a huge giveaway online for a free tattoo removal for one lucky bride-to-be (click this link if you’re interested in entering). We also distributed a press release and we set up radio spots on Mix 104.1. Kennedy, a co-host of the Karson and Kennedy Morning Show on Mix, is doing live and recorded spots telling everyone about our state-of-the-art tattoo removal technology.

At Tataway we love music and are big fans of Mix and the Karson and Kennedy show, so we are thrilled to be mentioned on the station! If you’d like to hear the Tataway radio spots, please click the links below – or stay by your radio this week. Maybe you “Can’t Beat Kennedy” at pop culture trivia, but you should click on the players below to listen to what she has to say about Tataway!
