Laser Tattoo Removal:

Using a highly effective pigment removal laser to target the ink trapped in the skin. The laser breaks up particles of pigment into tiny pieces that are then absorbed by the body and flushed out by the lymphatic and immune system. Multiple treatments space 6-8 weeks apart are usually required.

Tattoo Fading:

The same procedure as removal but fewer treatments are required. Facilitates a much easier and more effective cover-up to be done. Don’t be limited by your old tattoos.

Our Technology:

There are 2 types of laser which can be used for laser tattoo removal. A ‘passive’ laser and an ‘active’ laser tattoo removal system.

Laser tattoo removal using a passive laser: these are on the cheaper end of the laser tattoo equipment scale and as such tend to be purchased by tattoo parlours or beauty salons. Pierce of Art DO NOT offer this option.

Advantages: These cheaper machines may enable a beauty salon or tattoo parlour to pass on the savings to you. However, as most people do not know the difference between a ‘passive’ or ‘active’ laser (to most people a ‘laser’ is a ‘laser’), a lot of businesses will not offer a cheaper treatment.

Disadvantages: laser tattoo removal using a passive laser will not remove the tattoo completely. It will only partially fade it. A beauty clinic or tattoo parlour may take advantage of the fact that you, the consumer does not know the difference between an active or passive laser and may well charge you the same price you would expect to pay for a medical grade active Q-switched laser.


This is the single most effective way of removing tattoos of nearly all colours. The laser light is delivered in nanoseconds meaning a Q-Switched laser tattoo removal machine will literally shatter the pigment in the skin, breaking it up in to small particles which are then eliminated by the body’s immune system.

Advantages: Laser tattoo removal using an Active Q-Switched (AQS) laser is considered the gold standard treatment by dermatologists for effectively removing almost all tattoo colours with minimal risk of scarring. An Active Q-Switched tattoo removal laser will, in most cases, remove all traces of the tattoo. Because it requires several treatments, it is also possible to fade a tattoo if this is the desired effect.

Disadvantages: Will not remove certain colours like yellow or light blue. Not suitable for people prone to scarring problems e.g. keloid scarring. However, the same would apply to any tattoo removal methods.

At Pierce of Art we offer laser tattoo removal using an Nd:YAG Q-Switched (AQS) laser. We only operate medical grade lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems, the same ones used by the NHS. We offer a FREE no obligation consultation and FREE patch test. Book in today by calling 01246 221177
