I'm currently having a large tribal tattoo removed I've had 5 sessions so far (split design into 3, so 2 sections have now had 2 sessions) The area which received it's second session last night has blistered. Lots. Really big blisters... Is this normal? The first session didn't really blister - i mean, it did, but not to this extent. These are around the size of cashew nut blisters! Will this happen every session?

Tattoo Removal Blistering
Blistering of the skin is not uncommon following laser tattoo removal. I would recommend you return to the provider who performed the treatment to have the area checked if you are having a significantly different response than your initial treatment. Best Regards,

Blisters can happy
Blisters can happen with laser tattoo removal. I assume you are seeing an office where there is a board certified dermatologist or physician with advanced understanding of lasers as you want to make sure they are approaching the treatment in a appropriate fashion. You might want to call the office and see if they did anything differently this time.
