What is the best laser for removal of black tattoo ink? (photos)

I've consulted with several tattoo removal businesses in the last week with a wide variety of prices and settings, from doctor's office ($$$) to tattoo parlor ($). Each one had a different laser, but I haven't been able to find comparisons online. A) Astanza Duality B) NaturaLase QX YAG laser C) RevLite® SI laser -all Q switched Is there any consensus on what the best laser is for removal of black ink?

 There is no one best laser treatment for tattoo removal, but we've seen great results with both the Q-switched 1064 and PicoSure. It is best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist who has extensive knowledge and training in laser tattoo removal.
