Is Laser Tattoo Removal Successful on Light Complected African American Skin? (photo)

On Aug 5th I went for a cover up on a very small tattoo and the "artist" screwed up. The finished product came out crooked. I went back on Aug 31st to get it fixed and now the tattoo is even bigger, still slanted and poorly done. I absolutely hate it. The ink used was 100% Vegan. What is the possible clearance rate and estimated amount of sessions needed to remove this tattoo on my skin complexion?

Yes tattoos can be treated on folks with skin of color. However, you should see a dermatologist with expertise (advanced training) in laser surgery. The number of treatments depends on the density and type of ink used.
