I would recommend you see a provider who can offer laser treatment with multiple different wavelengths to obtain optimal clearance of your tattoo.  You should be able to obtain excellent results when treated appropriately.  Best Regards,

What color was the tattoo ink originally? Who are you seeing for your tattoo treatments? You not only need the right equipment, you also need someone who understands laser physics and how to use the laser properly. Most often this is best done by a dermatologist with training in laser surgery.

Your best bet by far at this time is to be treated with a PicoSure laser. This laser is best for blue tattoos  and often leads to removal within just  a few treatments. While there are no guarantees, our results with this laser have been phenomenal.
