Your tattoo will be a challenging one to totally remove as there are some colors where no laser can guarantee complete removal. You will need a laser that offers multiple wavelengths and at some point will need a picosecond laser to address faint residual pigment. And heavens, don't let anyone talk you into serial surgical removal. I can guarantee you will have an unsightly spreading scar on that outer deltoid skin.
Tattoos can be removed with lasers it will take multiple wavelengths however to treat this one in a series of treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
I would not recommend excision for this large tattoo. I like to excise tattoos when they are small and narrow. Excision for this tattoo would be difficult and would leave significant scarring. I would recommend laser treatment.
Thank you for your question. I would recommend laser tattoo removal with a multi wavelength Pico laser that can target the various colors in your tattoo. Our PiQo4 laser has 4 Pico wavelengths making it possible to treat 96% of colors. We carry a total of 5 Pico wavelengths helping patients safely and promptly remove tattoos. We also offer describe patches for double treatments.

From my experience, these bright colors will respond best to a Ruby wavelength laser independent of its pulse width. There have been some new treatment parameters such as the use of the describe patch which will allow for multiple treatments in one session with different wavelengths. Try to find a practitioner in your area with all three wavelengths. Good luck.
