You would be a great candidate for the Alex Trivantage laser. This laser is the only one on the market that can target colors. The multiple wave lengths can target all the colors in the tattoo with 4-6 sessions. You should contact a board certified dermatologist as soon as possible.

Black Tattoos Are Easiest to Remove
The pigment in tattoos is placed deep into the dermis. Therefore, it takes several sessions of treatment with a picosecond laser, such as PicoWay, to fully remove the ink. The tattoo is removed gradually, layer by layer, giving the skin time to heal in between sessions. Consult with a board-certified dermatologist to have your tattoo evaluated and get a more accurate idea of how many sessions it will probably take to remove it.
This could possibly be easily removed in as little as 6-10 treatments. Consider the Picosure laser for great results.

Use the Best Technology Available for the Fastest Results
Picosecond lasers fire 1000 times faster, using a pressure wave rather than heat to shear the ink molecules apart. After using the PicoSure for almost 2 years, we have only seen pinpoint hypopigmentation in a very small number of patients usually of darker skin tones. We cannot say it is impossible to get burned with a Picosecond laser, but it is highly unlikely. We tell every PicoSure tattoo patient to expect at least 6 treatments, but don’t be surprised if it takes 10 to 12. Patience is the key for our patients. We typically see our tattoo removal patients every 6 to 8 weeks initially. If they have more time than money, we encourage them to come every 6 months as the tattoos seem to continue to fade while they wait.
We recommend finding an experienced physician in your area. Treatment prices vary by market. The cost for picosecond treatments will be higher, but you should need less than half the treatments compared to a nanosecond laser.
