Yes you can have the tattoo treated with laser.  Black and grey colors usually respond well to laser treatment.  Most fresh tattoos are quite dark with a lot of ink present.  Typically at least six treatments are required, but sometimes it takes ten or more treatments to get rid of a tattoo.  Usually it takes persistence and commitment to get good results.
