Laser tattoo removal can be irritating to the skin. The skin itself may bleed and there may be some open sores. Because of this it is important to call your doctor and tell them about the redness you are experiencing. This may be a sign of an infection that would require topical and / or oral antibiotics. It is always better to air on the side of caution.
