There is a niche of Australians who love tattoo sleeves and full image tattoos covering a large portion of their bodies, while others appreciate tattoos but have decided to keep their ink-loving small scale.
Our latest research surveying ordinary Australians revealed that 12% of individuals had one or more tattoos. 22% of Australian men and 29% of women aged 20 to 29 have at least one tattoo. 34% of Australians who have a tattoo regret getting it, and one in seven of this group are considering removal.

Black Ink Tattoos
Removal techniques have come a long way since the days of skin grafting, skin removal, or the use of infra-red and other non-medical lasers. Best practice these days dictates that unwanted tattoos be gradually broken apart through the use of lasers set to specific wavelengths (depending on skin type and the colour and location of the tattoo).
The lasers are used in short bursts to break up the ink; then the immune system goes to work and gets rid of the dispersed particles. Treatment times vary according size and colour of tattoo. How many treatments you’ll need varies according to how well your immune system clears the pigment after treatments, the location and colour of the tattoo, and your skin type.
This is why it is imperative to make sure you seek a first off consultation that with us is FREE and will assist us and you in predetermining your complete care programme (before during and after), the number of treatments you will require and the time frame it will take for the complete removal process.
Very fine shading that you can see through can be removed in just one to three treatments as it's the least amount of ink a tattooist can put down. The same applies to very fine lines. Thicker lines and block ink take much longer to remove.
