Red Tattoo Ink
It is possible to remove a red tattoo.
Thanks for your question. It is possible to remove a red tattoo. Based on our experience, we definitely recommend a picosecond laser with 532 nm wavelength. For PicoSure, this wavelength is an upgrade over the original models and was added specifically for treating some red inks. The PicoSure Laser is new technology and will generally remove tattoos in half the treatments (or less!) required by older lasers,
without the risk of burning and with much, much lower risk of hypopigmentation.
Removing Red Tattoos
Yes, it is certainly possible to remove red tattoos. Laser removal of tattoos is performed with different wavelength lasers to target and break down different ink pigments. Be sure to ask your doctor if they have experience removing red ink tattoos.

Red Ink Tattoo Removal
Red ink is the second most common ink used in tattoos. Black being the first. Red ink is also the culprit for many reactions from tattoo placement and removal. If you did not have an "allergic" reaction to the red ink during your tattoo, you most likely will not have a reaction during its removal. But it is possible to remove. By the look of the density of the ink, I might estimate 3-5 treatments.
