I got a tattoo about 6 months ago and I'm really not too fond of it, I don't dislike the meaning but I don't like that it's on my wrist. I figure it's better to get rid of it now than waiting until it's even harder to get off. It's small about 1/2" X 2" on my wrist in all black, my skin is very fair too. I would like to know what a reasonable estimate would be for it's laser removal cost. I'm a college student and money is in short supply, but I am willing to take the cost on this mistake.

Laser Tattoo Removal Cost
The cost per session to have your tattoo removed would be approximately $150. Multiple sessions would be required. We never tell patients that they will need a certain number of treatments. Each tattoo respond differently to the laser. Some clear up very quickly while others are much more persistent.
You can expect to pay 100-250 per treatment. The number of treatments is not always predicable. A Revlite laser or a Candela Trivantage should work.
Black tattoos are the easiest to remove. This can be done with a Q switched NdYag 1064 laser. Our office would charge $100 a treatment for a tattoo this size. This would take between 6-8 sessions.
Prices vary quite a bit depending on the region.
