Can Liposonix be performed on areas of the skin with tattoos? I know procedures such as laser hair removal can disrupt tattoo ink...Are there similar problems with the ultrasound frequencies of the Liposonix?

Liposonix no problem over tattoos
Because Liposonix treatments use focused ultrasound, they are not affected by skin color or tattoos, as lasers are. The main criteria are at least an inch thickness of localized fat, reasonably good skin tone, and no surgical scars in the area.
Liposonix will not fade the tattoo
Liposonix can be applied over skin with tattoo
Liposonix utilizes high energy high intensity focused ultrasound to permanently destruct fat cells, achieving reduction of localized fat and facilitating body contouring. The ultrasonic energy is focused one inch beneath the skin and thus can be safely applied over tattoo ink deposited underneath the skin.

Liposonix works on ultrasound technology which does not interfere with the color changes in the skin and one’s skin type. We called the company, who confirmed that it is safe, Good luck.
Liposonix: not a problem with tattooed areas
Because the energy of Liposonix is focused about a half an inch below the surface of the skin (tattoos are in the skin itself) there is no interaction between the two. Tattoos don's interfere with fat reduction and fat reduction does not interfere with the tattoos. We have treated a number of tattooed areas, no problem.
