I had the symbol for "mother" tattooed (far right) and wanted "daughter" and "love" added to it. The symbol for "daughter" is on the left. I want to have this fixed, and the only alternative I see is to have it lasered off. Will laser tattoo removal erase it completely? Will it leave any scarring? I've been sick to my stomach since this was done. Please help me.

What Color is The Easiest to Remove
We use the Picosure laser it can remove 95%+ of the tattoo. Black ink is the easiest color to remove. Sometimes the ink can be removed completely depending on the depth. Risks of scarring is minimal. You should get the removal done with an expert. I recommend going for in person consultation.
The tattoo is black and fairly simple, so it should be able to be removed completely.

Black tattoo is easier to remove
Tattoo removal is easier depending on the color of the tattoo! If you have a tattoo color of yellow or green-blue, it can be faded but less likely to be removed! But if you have a tattoo that is black in color you can sometimes remove it completely depending on the depth of the ink. Sometimes, the laser can't absorb deep enough to remove the tattoo that it will leave a bruise like area that can be covered with makeup.
Thank you for your question. Pico lasers are the most advanced technology. In my practice I utilize the PiQo4 laser which has 4 Pico wavelengths making it possible to remove tattoos in as little as 4-6 treatments on average. While scarring is a risk it is rare and also less likely with Pico lasers and an experienced provider. Complete removal is possible but not every tattoo responds with complete removal. There are a variety of factors the contribute to the removal process such as the location of the tattoo, the sharpness of the ink, skin tone and how quickly your body eliminates the ink. I have been practicing tattoo removal for 20 years. I feel that is is important to seek an experienced tattoo removal provider with the latest technology. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
Mother Daughter Love Tattoo
This tattoo can be easily removed with an Q-switched Nd:Yag laser. You may experience what is known as "ghosting" after removal. This is like a shadow of the previous tattoo. Choose an experienced provider, make sure you wait at least 6 weeks between treatments, and good luck!

Clearly, a black ink tattoo has been used and these types of colors are the 'easiest' colors to fragment with laser energy. Lighter colors like the yellows and the fluorescent colors are most difficult requiring special devices and more sessions of therapy.
We use the Alex TriVantage Laser in our Williasville laser office.
