Black ink tattoo back of neck
Today I had a patient come in requesting a tattoo fade for
a cover up. I wasnt suprised because that accounts for about
40% of my practice. What did surprise me is when they took out
an 8×10 photo of the tattoo that the artist marked in detail just
what they wanted to be faded and what areas they wanted to remain.
This was a real stroke of genius. It made the process so much
easier and accurate. If at all possible do this. Many times there
is confusion about what areas should be faded. Having the artist
mark up the photo will make this fade perfect.
Here is a short video of very bad tattoo fails.
The laser shatters your ink in the deep dermal layer of the skin and your immune cells carry it away.
Areas that have a high supply of blood flow and lymph the basic carrier of your immune system clear tattoo ink sooner than areas that lack this supply.
The higher up on your body the tattoo the better your immune system works on it.
If you had an identical tattoo on your neck and foot the neck would clear several treatments before the foot!
