Confident with Picoway
Picoway is great at removing all colors of ink in tattoos. Three wavelengths that it treats. The 532 wavelength is great for reds and oranges the 700's wavelength is great for blues and greens and the 1064 is great for dark colors. When a tattoo has multiple colors and inks in it often we need more than one wavelength over a few sessions to rid the various inks. The pico technology is much faster and literally shatters the ink in the tattoos. This helps the tattoos clear faster and better than older nano technology. It is less painful than the older lasers and there is less scarring and pigmentation issues post laser therapy. Hope this helps.
PicoWay Removes Most Tattoo Colors
The PicoWay Laser uses lasers with multiple wavelengths to fragment a variety of pigments so that they can be removed from the skin. It works very well on red, orange and yellow inks. It is not particularly effective on green, however, so you may require treatment with more than one type of laser. Please see a board-certified dermatologist to have your tattoo evaluated.

I like the Q switched lasers myself as the above are expensive and may only benefit those with the above colored inks.
For traditional black ink tattoos nanosecond lasers may be just as good.
