2nd session of laser tattoo removal, bleeding and swelling? (Photos)

Hi, I had my second session of laser tattoo removal on Thursday and it was nothing like the first. The practitioner advised she had turned the strength up after shooting a couple of lasers into the tattoo when first starting the session. There was a small amount of bleeding however my ankle then poured with blood when I stood up. I have a lot of scanning and bruising however now a very swollen ankle making me look like I have a cankle!!! Is this okay, I am concerned about scaring.

Swelling question with tattoo


Swelling can be common, but bleeding is not
always common. Would be best to take a picture of it and send it to the
provider who did the treatment .
