Tattoo Removal over scars
Since the scars were already present, this shouldn't present too much of a problem to remove them. A commercial tattoo artist uses a tattooing machine that is very consistent of the level of penetration for the ink. If the scar came about after the tattoo, then it could present a problem as the ink might be at a deeper level. This usually means more treatments to get to the deeper ink.
