It's perfectly safe to use thermage over tattoos. Thermage is not a laser and therefore will not damage the tattoo. I hope this helps.

Yes, Thermage can be performed on an area that has a tattoo.  Because this is heat and not the same type of laser, you can have this procedure. Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green
