There have been many methods used for the removal of tattoos, many of which involved some sort of traumatic measures to cut or scrape the ink out of the skin. Laser removal isn’t like that at all, and most removal at this point is done with lasers. In fact, laser removal is the “gold standard” and other methods of removal are only used when lasers are unavailable or inappropriate for some other reason.
Unfortunately, many people have the old methods in mind, and will immediately think of the digging for ink as the main method used to get tattoos out. This can mean that people dismiss removal before they’ve even investigated it.
In Boston, a specialist in laser removal is Tataway. Their location is on South Street near the South subway station, and they have valet parking on Tuesday through Friday. For Newton, Framingham or Cambridge tattoo removal, they are easily accessed from highway 90.
